    2009-2010 we used SRT for tree access on the bigger trees, using pantin, and hand ascenders with a safety backup. We would then switch over to MRS to work the tree.

    MRS? I'm guessing Multi Rope System.

    Hey Noah, did I meet you at the NE ISA conference? You and another guy who's name escapes me.

    I saw a prototype RW made from wood at the NATCC in Savannah 5 or 6 years ago. That was the first time I saw/heard of that particular style of SRT working in the tree. SRT Access, though, was something I had done with the triple prussic system when I was a kid back in the 70's. Not for working, just for getting to the first limbs so we could free climb the rest of the tree.

    A little bump here:)
    Year 2000 while I took a ArborMaster Canada training course, Dwayne supplied a Mars Bar setup to climb SRT on a big American elm. Was like riding a manual elevator.
    I learnt the DR Blakes from day one and never tried SRT.
    Thanks to my BigShot and double ring friction savers easily installed and recovered from the ground, I've got pretty good at isolating the best TIP.
    Yes in my avatar pic there's a ring on ring friction saver up there.

    Now that I think about it the Mars Bar ascender is on double rope.

    But it is still a stationary, non-moving rope technique.

    Yup just like the old school static double rope with prussic on footlock technique.
