  1. Sorbus are pleased to announce that we are hosting another workshop to benefit our customers on: Modern Climbing Tools and Techniques A complete practical overview of all the latest tools and techniques run by expert trainer in tree work and forestry, Tony Darbyshire and 3ATC winner Geoff Pugsley. An insight into rapidly developing new techniques and rope climbing tips for the arborist climber to help you be as productive, safe and comfortable as possible in the trees. Saturday 8th October We are all aware that this industry is constantly evolving and new techniques and tools are being introduced regularly, it almost seems that you just learn one technique and then there is another new shiny gadget out to learn about all over again! To help climbers get a better understanding we are offering a ‘hands-on’ experience in a variety of systems, starting at our brand new premises in Frome and then off to the beautiful grounds of Ammerdown Park in Kilmersdon. To get your space and for more information book online here: https://www.sorbus-intl.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&path=699&product_id=7062 If you would like to discuss any aspect of the course with us please don't hesitate to call us on 01373 475540 or email: sales@sorbus-intl.co.uk Thanks, The Sorbus Team

    Mystery

    At the 3ATC climbing comp at Cragside I was shown a climbing system using a schwäbisch, pulley, karabiners and a stein strop. It was set up so it was self tending and you could move the hitch closer for branch walks etc or further away for ascending quickly. Thought it was a great system but I can't remember what it was called Not a great description but does anyone have any ideas??
  4. Prusik loops or split tail? Your thoughts?
  5. Hi all, just bought myself a yale imori 12mm and thought i'd try out both 8mm and 10mm ocean polyester cords to see how they both work with it. i climb with a hitchclimber and a distal on top, but FOOLISHLY forgot that i bought my last friction cord from the last trade show in chicester and the nice lad at treeworker cut me off an extra foot above 2 metres. so the issue is i thought i could make a distal out of 1 metre and inevitably its turned out about 10cm too short. obviously it wouldnt be the end of the world to chuck out the two cords, but it got me thinking it wouldn't be a terrible idea to find a knot that would work well on top a hitchclimber that you can tie out of 1 metre to save hassle in future any knot pros with any ideas?
  6. I'm getting to my wits end with the vt despite having heaps of help on the forum. I get it for branch walking and one handed self tending friction hitch and in that respect it's great. What I don't get is using it whilst ascending. It just doesn't advance right without someone pulling the rope through at the bottom. I was told the vt stays about waist height and the rope feeds itself through. What I'd REALLY REALLY appreciate is some photo's of the vt IN ACTION: i.e. clipped on harness pre ascent and mid ascent. I don't wanna be beaten but I'm getting close to going back to my old Blake's hitch and to never return to vt world again. At the moment I'm using an isc fixed cheek pulley with 1.5M of 8mm aramide tied off with single fishermans onto crab. Go on make my Christmas. Please
