Rigging The Yoke — Part 1 in the 4 Part Series: “Major Tagline | Pulleys, Rope and Pulley Systems for High Angle Technical Rescue”

This video discusses rigging the yoke in major taglines. Major taglines employ two mainlines, and two belay lines at the same time. The two working in harmony, while one is in the lower mode, the other is in the raising mode. Major taglines are most often use to negotiate larger type gaps. In most cases the major tagline has two notable advantages over highlines. Anchoring is not as critical because vector forces created by the tagline system should never approach those of highlines, and the major tagline is much quicker to implement than highlines.

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.
