Now we’re down at the bottom end. As I said at the top, we’ve got our red track line and we’ve got our blue skate block. The attachments here, we’ve got a pulley on the track line. Also on the track line we have a mobile fall arrester, a Petzl ASAP. That means worst case, if the skate block was to fail, we’ve got our load protected by an ASAP on the track line anchored above.

For the hauling system, I’m going to be using the skyhook winch. The track line I’ve got anchored through a CMC MPD. That will enable me to adjust the tension in the track line at any time during the raise should I need to move that load around to get past an obstacle. Now I know human loads on powered winch systems are a hard point of discussion internationally at the moment. We’re going to get one of the Deschutes Brewery employees up on this system. Chris is going to ride this system. I hope you can see that by having an ASAP on this line, on this separate line, and a skate block on the blue, we’ve got him on two Independent systems. It’s the same as our twin rope access systems that we use for any other work at height.

Gear Look:  Watch for these pieces!
