Two (Twin) Tension Rope Systems

The Gear Used In Artificial Highlines and Two Tension Rope Systems

Ultimate – the best achievable or imaginable of its kind. Can we have The Ultimate Gear List for anything?  Probably not, but we can put some thought into what that might look like. Before we get to the list, let us outline where this gear cache came from. In building this course with Jason Ilowite …

Dual Capability Two Tensioned Rope Systems (DC TTRS1 ) Technical Rope Rescue Systems Overhaul

So as most of our community knows… we incredibly excited about the Two (Twin) Tension Rope System.  Technically, it isn’t new, but newer.  The system, like most paradigm shifts, need some time to acclimate.  Not the system mind you… the teams, individuals and thus expectations, goals and SOPs. Rather than try to create “new” information …

Double CLUTCH | Using the CLUTCH In a Twin Tension Rope System (TTRS)

I always appreciate great video.  Video (to me) is either aesthetic or technical and trying to bridge both is tough. This video from CMC is clearly technical, but I really appreciate the angles of perspective. So often the “clarifying message” of “the how” can get completely lost if the angles are not right. The CMC …

Parallel Hauls, Doubled Mechanical Advantage or Not?

Today at Rigging Lab Academy, we’re going to bust this myth that parallel mechanical advantage systems somehow add together and double mechanical advantage. There are arguments out there that two 3:1s side by side pulled on the same load are a 6:1, or two 5:1s are a 10:1. It’s not true, and we’re going to …

For Two Tension Dual Capacity Rope Systems Savvy Technicians: The Efficiency Schematic

So lately, I have been going through a type of transformation of sorts.  I will be honest… not all of the process has been fun and pushing through bias demons can be difficult, but with friends like Craig McClure, Jason Ilowite and Rich Delaney… the sojourn has been rewarding.  Bear in mind that a sojourn …

Two Rope Twin Tension Mini Offset… Backcountry Meets Fire Service

So backcountry meets fire service… sounds like a battle of some sort.  So while this “match up” is really neither epic nor epoch, this contest does have some interludes that hasn’t always faired well for either side. A while back, some well needed direction was given to the fire service in the form of recommendations …
