Double Line Rope Walker

Richard Tregoweth - Friday, November 06, 2009



Check out this double line climbing system using the Petzl Pantin. Atreestory is climbing on Yale Poison Ivy using the friction hitch perfected by the Treemagineers.

The climber in the video is using Yale Beeline friction cord, popular in the USA, rather than the 'official' fully rated Ocean Polyester friction cord as specified by the Treemagineers. Many New Zealand climbers use Armor-Prus.

Apart from the retro Friction Saver it's home-grown innovation like this that is changing the face of tree climbing.
