  1. Shows how tenacious climbing line can be.
  2. looking at making an adjustable length rope bridge for my treemotion with a kong duck. i know that not all ropes are suitable for bridges. so what ropes are suitable? also if anyone has pics of their adjustable bridge id be keen to see them cheers
  3. hey guys quick question does anyone have any other ideas or tricks they have used on their bridge to help when using two climbing systems, as i'm finding that they're getting jammed together or caught on each other and its a pain in the arse. Thanks
  4. [ame] [/ame] If you click on the youtube link above - it will take you to one of Richard Mumford's excellent ideas videos; within the comments of that video I've (gillettemarc3) posted an idea. Has anyone else considered/developed this 'Bridge Lanyard Loop'? 'Always loved your vids Richard - thank you. I'm going to try out all these ideas. I have one other - your adjustable rope bridge could almost be taken a couple of steps further to make it also an adjustable lanyard in itself. Either by putting a small carabiner/connector where the termination knot is on your bridge plate, or by putting a biner/connector on the opposite (tail) end of your rope - then you could bring that tail end round a trunk/branch and (possibly) through another roll n lock/rope grab/adjuster connected back to the original plate the rope started from (to form a complete rope loop circling the branch/trunk - connection point to connection point). Or you could thread the tail of your bridge through a connector on your D ring, round the trunk, back to your opposite D ring - then possibly back to the starting rigging plate (though that is almost getting back to original lanyard rigging points - side D's). The only reason I'm thinking of this is because I use a flipline - when sometimes all I need is a rope lanyard. To minimise gear - if I'm making an adjustable rope bridge anyway - it might only be another couple of steps to make it into a rope lanyard. Just putting the idea out there for anyone to dismiss/modify. One possible need for this (apart from removing flipline from saddle when it is not needed) is when you are pruning small trees (and don't need flipline + climbing rope so much). Also if you are near uninsulated power lines (3 phase) - you want to minimise metal conducting (flipline) components on your person. At first I thought you wouldn't be able to connect your climbing line to your bridge while you are using the tail end of your bridge as a lanyard - but why shouldn't you? - It might take some jiggery pokery with rope grabs/stoppers to make both bridge and lanyard run to full potential - but it is possible. Maybe in the future lanyard and bridge will be one rope (and consequently even reduce the need for 2 pairs of full size D rings)? - Someone tell me I'm not going completely crazy... : ) Thanks Richard! Read more Reply · Hide replies [​IMG] Richard Mumford 2 hours ago +gillettemarc3 The tail is there for a second bridge, why not a short lanyard as you suggest, I like the concept.....something to think about. Thanks Reply · [​IMG] gillettemarc3 1 hour ago +Richard Mumford Effectively the bridge and the lanyard would be occasionally/alternatively sharing a certain length of the rope (the length just beyond the normal length of the bridge - before it enters a lanyard adjuster). I currently don't have the means to test this out. It may be my only claim to fame - but it could be called the 'Brailsford Loop' (my second name) - or maybe more appropriately the 'Bridge Lanyard Loop' Ha ha - Keep up the good work! Reply · [​IMG] gillettemarc3 1 hour ago (edited) +gillettemarc3 Obviously - if you pull either the bridge or the lanyard to full possible extension on the rope - you will decrease the length of the bridge or lanyard on the opposite end of the rope; unless you applied some kind of 'stopper' or device/rope grab (that is small - quick apply/quick release) that can come up against either the lanyard adjuster or the ct roll n lock and temporary 'lock' the rope from being pulled from either end.' All criticism/ideas welcome. Thanks!
  5. Hear are some images from my phone from 11 days ago, It’s the takedown of 2 trees & the making safe of 1 tree from the up-stream side of a bridge under repair so they can get equipment in to strengthen it after flood damage. didn’t think to take any photos until after the 1st biggest tree was down, as I had got a new phone with a camera, lol! Image 1: the Unimog U1500 I was operating, the remnants of the ivy covered 1st tree are stacked for loading (left) The chipper is on the bridge in the background ware all chippable wood was dropped/pulled/thrown out of the tree, then the trunks were felled back towards the bank individually then grabbed with the crane before the hinge was cut threw then lifted out. Tree 2 can be seen behind the crane kingpost. Image 2: a composite showing tree 2 (left) & tree 3 right, Tree2 has been dismantled and chippable wood was dropped/pulled/thrown out of the tree as per tree 1, Trunks are ready for lifting out onto the bridge. Image 3 & 4: tree 2 all lifted out. All the brash from tree 3 was stacked near tree 2’s stump then grabbed with the crane and lifted out then placed in front of the Unimog on the bridge orientated for chipping into the back of a 7.5t truck, lower branches that could be reached were directly lifted out. Image 5: an inadvertent before & after of tree 3.
