PART 3: Gin Pole – Major Tagline | Horizontal Rigging

Written By: Lance Piatt

Major taglines employs 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.
