Written By: Lance Piatt

Tensioning Side Tensioning a quad-bundle trackline is particularly rigging intensive and requires practice and patience. As with all trackline tensioning systems of highline construction, we must be diligent of not over tensioning. In addition, with all multi-bundles, equal tension is imperative. During this short video you will see how to rig a 3:1 on each of the four lines with only one operator tensioning the system. This is very efficient use of a differential pulley and the unique use of an extended mechanical disadvantage pulley system. Highline operations are dangerous. They are the most difficult of all vertical rescues. Under no circumstances should a highline be attempted solely on the instruction of this video or any video. They should almost always b used as a last resort. Because of the tremendous stress highline put on anchors, here are some key principles that must be included in the construction of highlines. Anchors must be bombproof Full strength of the track-line must be utilized by eliminating all knots, and all sharp bends in the rope. All knots on the control lines must be bypassed. Maintaining a pulley tension system to the highlines utilizing a “slipping clutch”(or safety fuse) in the form of system prusiks. (8mm, 3 wrap) Incorporate a carriage system supporting the load.
