  1. ascent event

    Hello, Are there any comp climbers or judges who could clear up a few things about the new ascent event? I couldn't find any vids that demonstrate it. 1 - Is it a choked off doubled line that's set in the tree, similar to the usual foot lock event? Or could you specify it to be a single line? Or could you just ascend on one end of the line? 2 - Can you set up your descent to be on the same line you went up on? So if I ascended on a rope wrench system, all I'd need to do is un-clip my foot ascender for the changeover part. 3 - What is the most popular method people use? Footlock up and then install a doubled rope system when at the top? or just SRT up and then un-clip ascenders. I'm guessing it would waste a lot of time faffing around installing a VT and RW compared to just tying a footlock prussik. Hope that makes sense. Any vids etc would be helpful. Cheers Rob
  2. Backup line when spiking.

    You could use a figure 8 under the prussik but that would be a bit of a faff. I've mainly used a multi saver (teufelberger) or similar tightly wrapped around the stem with the main line running through it. Very quick, safe and simple and means you can decend or ascend a pole, retrieve from beneath etc.

  4. CE Cougar blue with rope wrench

    That's true. Think ill clear it with the gaffer before I fork out for one though.
  5. CE Cougar blue with rope wrench

    Thanks Mark - I was thinking of getting the non CE stuff but I'll soon be working for a local authority so doubt I'd be allowed to use it.
  6. Hi, sorry for another 'what rope' thread but I couldn't find the answer I need on any of the others. Is the CE marked Cougar blue any good for SRT? namely with a VT/wrench combo? I've been using Kernmaster for a couple of years and its good but fancied trying something else. I know they changed the construction of the core but both Kern and Cougar are nylon core. So who has used both and which would you recommend? Cheers Rob

    <p>Hi Pinder,</p>

    <p> </p>

    <p>I'm sorry, your message from last October went to my visitors message so I didnt get a notification of it.</p>

    <p> </p>

    <p>Are you still interested in working over here? </p>

    <p> </p>

    <p>In terms of climbing ability, I guess they're after someone who can just get on with general pruning and felling work, nothing too demanding really. In other words if know how to get up and round a tree you'll be fine. Ive only just started to dabble with SRT myself and I'm the only guy here who uses it. </p>

    <p> </p>

    <p>let me know if youre still keen. </p>

    <p>Sounds like a nice job pruning the trees at the palace <img src="<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/smile.png" alt=":)" srcset="<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" /></p>

    <p> </p>

    <p>Yeh we're still looking. I'm just staff here, it was the boss who asked me to put an advert up to find another British climber. At the moment its me, another English guy and the rest are Danes. All good lads.</p>

    <p> </p>

    <p>My email is <a href="mailto:" rel="">robbyt82@hotmail.com</a>. If you send me your CV I'll make sure he gets it.</p>

  10. Climber need Copenhagen

    Just bumping this as Ive been asked to find another climber. Someone with a couple of years experience would be ideal, who can just get on with it. Its good. varied work, mainly climbing in a friendly and well-equipped team. We are the oldest arb firm in DK and very good reputation and a long list of clients. There is no accommodation with the job so you'd have to be up for finding your own digs but I'm sure you'd get help with this. It may suit someone who knows the area or has connections here. Just pm me or email Rasmus (details above) Cheers.

  14. Climber need Copenhagen

    Hello, The company I'm working for (these chaps: Træfældning i København, Roskilde, Taastrup - god pris på fældning af træer) are after a climber from now until the end of the year, possibly longer depending on workload. Nice, varied work around the Great Copenhagen area. They're a good set of lads, very well kitted out, professional etc.). The pay is pretty good and its a great city to live in. Don't worry about the language, most Danes speak better English than the English. If anyone's interested and wants any more details feel free to send me a pm. or you could email Rasmus (the boss) directly at ravn@henrikravn.dk. Cheers Rob
