The Cost of Doing Business with a Dynamic Directional Between Gin-pole and A-Frame

Written By: Lance Piatt

The cost of rope rescue rigging and training, much less a rescue, has some inherent expenditures.  There is the direct cost of the gear, which to some might seem like a lot, but in reality it pales in comparison to the costs of personnel and training.  These can easily be broken down into professionals who are paid and not paid, but let it be known… ineffective training and a lack of efficient use of resources will squander any savings that may have occurred in the purchase of equipment and in the end, being profitable is the name of the game.  Regardless of the type of team, costs must be considered carefully by all… administration and technicians alike.

What I want folks to think about is that actuating “rigging and rope rescue systems” and are generating any sort of “input or output” is the same as doing a “budget based cost benefit analysis”. How many people does it really require to perform any given job and can it be done better with less people and less gear and with a higher level of efficiency and effectiveness?  If so… then it should be done.

The equipment you are about to see in the below video will fill the need for 80% of your rope rigging and rescue needs.  I might wager that it could possibly be as high as 90% (for some teams). This video I am referring to includes 2 artificial high directionals, a ton of anchor options, multiple raising systems (two or twin tension rope system)… lowering devices and multiple guying systems.  And yes… a rescue litter would and likely should be part of this list as well.


It would be a rare day that all of this gear would be required at the same time.  Some might say that cord is as useful for guying as are a pair of  “4:1s” and this could be true, but it makes my point even more so.  More gear is simply more gear and knowing what you can do with less is more advantageous.  When keeping things simple, training is more effective.  Training can be broken down into anchoring, or guying or hauling.  The set of fours we used in this video were used to build a dual “Inside 9” hauling system.  One person can set up and run the entire haul and lower system.  The Petzl I’Ds serve as both a progress capture and lowering device.

The PETZL PRO pulley is designed for maximum simplicity when setting up hauling or load deviation systems. The side plate that locks under load, the large-diameter sheave and the very high efficiency sealed ball bearings make a pulley that is well suited for handling heavy loads.

The PETZL JAG SYSTEM haul kit for pickoffs, making a releasable anchor, or tensioning a system, thanks to its 4:1 mechanical advantage and excellent efficiency (sheaves with sealed ball bearings). The collapsed kit is highly compact, allowing it to be used even when the distance to the anchor is very short. The PETZL JAG SYSTEM haul kit is quick and easy to deploy: it is ready to use thanks to the flexible cover that prevents any risk of tangling. The haul end is color-coded for instant identification. It is available in three lengths: 1, 2 and 5 meters.

The CMC Arizona Vortex is a great Artificial Directional System (AHD). With its ability to be set up as a tripod, bipod, and monopod, this system can be made into an A-Frame, a sideways A-Frame, a Gin Pole or many other helpful rescue and rope access configurations. The ability to form as an easel A-Frame allows the rescue team to use is versatile third leg to set a high directions in a multitude of situations. High lines and tracking line offsets are easily set with the Vortex.
