Dynamic Directional Offset System Using an A-Frame and Natural High Directional

Written By: Lance Piatt

Over time, we’ve found this style of deflection offset to be really fun. They have their limits, as with any system, but strength (when properly rigged and run) comes easy and we appreciate the versatility it offers. Large gaps or spans are typically the MO for dynamic directionals.

We used a standard A-Frame configuration on the Working Line side, while the deflection or Dynamic system was of natural origin, but nonetheless, high help.

The system is tensioned and “relaxed” based on the needs of the moment. Communication is critical as running water, wind, and a host of other challenges can play havoc with the team.

The primary working line controls the vertical direction, where the dynamic or deflection system controls “out and back or in and out” motions; somewhat similar to reeving systems.

The one critical point with the deflection system (as with all offsets) is that they are not nor meant to be operated as a highline. Keeping the angles as deep as possible is always the rule. It’s highly recommended to have a dedicated belay line associated with the deflection line.

Key points for this unit include: 
  • Working line

  • Deflection line

  • AHD systems

  • Anchors

  • Tensioning systems
