Norwegian Reeve – Control Side & Carriage System | Horizontal Rigging

Written By: Lance Piatt

Norwegian Reeve When we talk about reeving systems for highlines, we are referring to the rigging component that allows us to lower from and raise to the carriage system of the highline. This is our rope elevator so to speak. The Norwegian Reeve, like it’s brother the English Reeve, is a 6:1 compound mechanical advantage. However, with the Norwegian Reeve it terminates at the Carriage and requires much less rope than the English which runs the full length of the highline system. The trade-off is that the Norwegian Reeve requires more rope management and must be let out from the control side as the carriage moves away from the home base side. For additional detailed information on the Norwegian and English Reeves contact Rescue Response Gear about our highline rigging courses.
