The Arizona Vortex Guidebook Video Course

On behalf of Rigging Lab Academy, I’m Rob Stringer and I’d like to welcome you to our instructional series on the Arizona Vortex. So the user manual and the video series are set up to enable you to use the Vortex and set it up in basic configurations.

Basic Configuration of the Arizona Vortex:

  • Easel-A tripod
  • Equilateral tripod
  • Classic A-Frame bipod
  • Sideways A-Frame bipod
  • Gin-Pole

I encourage you, if you pursue this to the point where you need more complex setups, is you find a good training provider or a training school and you attend some classes, get some practical hands-on, and build your skills from that. So I hope you enjoy the series. It’s been a good time putting it together and I look forward to your feedback.

The Vortex is ideal for a wide range of applications, from access and egress to confined spaces, to the negotiation of complex edges in wilderness environments. The Vortex is the multipod of choice for professionals within the rescue, industrial rope access, construction, military, and entertainment rigging industries.

The Vortex User Manual was written and edited by Rob Stringer, in collaboration with Rock Exotica who provided the product specifications and illustrations. Rob Stringer is the Founder / Director of Highpoint Access & Rescue in Rockhampton, Queensland Australia. Highpoint Access & Rescue was established in 2003, primarily to service the rope access, work at heights and confined space safety needs of Queensland’s electricity generating industry. Over its operational period, Highpoint has grown to provide rope access and professional asset maintenance services to every thermal power station in Queensland, as well as servicing many other industries both on and offshore.

Through extensive use, exhaustive testing (both destructive and non-destructive), and discussions with Reed and other industry leaders, Rob has been able to develop a unique process for the basic Vortex setup. This process and the related “Rules of Thumb” are described in this user manual. Rob has also developed methods to approximate and calculate forces associated with the more complex Vortex rigging, however, this information is not covered in the basic user manual.
