Double hitch system introduced by Scott Forrest

Richard Tregoweth - Friday, November 12, 2010



As if a full day of tree climbing was not enough Scott Forrest, Nicky Ward-Allen and Chrissy Spence conducted a climbing workshop to conclude day one of the 2010 NTCC.

During this informative workshop Scott demonstrated a dual friction hitch system as an alternative lifting mechanism to be employed during a difficult aerial rescue.

Have a look at the video below (no, it is not a French-speaking Scott in the video). The double-prussic technique could be the start of something new! Unfortunately the commentary is all in French but you will get the general idea.

Thanks to Rossy Ross from Pro Climb for searching this video.
