    TREEKIT are proud to offer another specialist workshop, this time led by SRT expert Lawrence Schultz!

    Lawrence Schultz AKA Pfanner Man

    Lawrence has been an arborist for 15 years. His career started in New York City and has now led him to San Francisco, California (with many other stops along the way).

    Known mainly for his complex urban rigging, he also applies that same creativity and incessant urge for tinkering to SRT!

    A combined passion for teaching and for safely pushing the limits led to the creation of the digital reference platform: The Schultz Effect. The main goals of this platform are to mobilize, organize and catalog a world of information, that can be brought to you wherever and whenever it is needed.

    About the Workshop

    Amongst other things, Lawrence will be demonstrating the "equalizer" series of retrievable, adjustable redirects and transfers which can be set remotely. The workshop will also demonstrate several advanced multi-rope systems and the strategy behind their deployment.

    The day will cover:

    Session 1: Terry Banyard – Advanced SRT Techniques

    Session 2: Lawrence Schultz -The Schultz Effect – SRT

    Session 3: Lawrence Schultz – Overcoming the Challenges / A Brief Summary of Urban Rigging
    Our usual SRT expert Terry Banyard will be on-site to share his expertise during the first session of the day!  Terry is a specialist contract climber and uses SRT at work on a daily basis.

    £69 Ex VAT (including lunch)

    The workshops will be taking place at TREEKIT on:
