Dynamic Directionals – Mainline, Batwing, Gin Pole | Horizontal Rigging

Written By: Lance Piatt

A directional anchor is typically a pulley that allows us to redirect a rope; this can be elevated as in a high directional, or low as a simple redirect, or anywhere in between. When we want a directional pulley to be adjustable, we add some mechanical advantage influence that allow us to make the directional pulley dynamic (movable). This is a common need for gaps that are too large to get a tripod over or some other form of high directional. Simply put, a dynamic directional allows us to rig a directional pulley out and over a gap where other options are limited.

Sterling Rope is the Official Rope of Rescue Response Gear’s The Rigging Lab. The Lab uses Sterling’s 11mm HTP Static for many of our rigging systems. A multi-use rescue/rappel rope that resists moisture and has high abrasion resistance. 100% polyester static provides significantly lower elongation and is perfect for any haul system. Ideal for high traffic expeditions, mountain rescue, military, industrial rope access, and swift-water rescue uses.
