    Not me, just a vid I found last night of a long ascent with the Wraptor. I am sure some of you who do this type of work will be less phased but....

    Talk about your open ascent! Looks like the New River Gorge in West Virginia.

    I wonder how the TIP was achieved. Climb down from the top, with safety of course. But then why not decend and do the inspection? I am sure they have reasons I don’t know.
    But the TIP being wrapped around that beam with squares corners is kinda spooky to me.

    My guess is you need to go up and or down in 3 spots to do a full inspection on each leg. Once on each outside leg, and then as in the video once in the middle. As to how the tip was achieved I'm assuming it's done from the top down as his straps were hung in a non remotely setable fashion. Also to set your mind at ease about it being a square corner beam, they're wire straps with the intent that they are cut and chafe resistant
