    HHX Hitch Question

    I have a HHX and have used it about 5 times, with similar results. I find that if I tie the normal HH hitch, following @Richard Mumford-yoyoman instructions that no matter how tight I tie it, once I'm 20-30' up in the air the hitch/rope stretch out enough that it no longer grabs when I load it...

    Good Buy on Hitch Cord

    This ebay seller has 69' of 8mm HRC Thermashield for sale for $62 shipped. I've bought from him before and he's legit. Here's a link if anyone is interested! He also has at least three other listings for other lengths of the HRC and a bunch of weird lengths of Dynaglide too...

    Rigging Set-up

    I'm going to be removing a large dead Red Oak from my brother's property in the next month or so and would like to know if my plan of attack has any obvious flaws. Tree is about 90' tall and has fungi all over it so I'm not comfortable using it as any kind of anchor point to climb on. It...

    WTB 120'-150' Samson Vortex

    Anyone have an unused or lightly used piece of Vortex w/an eye splice on one end? Prefer the "cool" colors but hot is fine too. I got a short length with another purchase and just love the way it feels in the hand.

    Chain Hitch

    I did my first negative rigging job last week blocking down a couple Silver Maple spars for a neighbor with a Portawrap, ISC block and 1/2" stable braid rigging line. I used the chain hitch(instead of a running bowline) above a half hitch and it worked great and was easy for my totally...

    8mm Teufelberger HRC Thermashield

    Does anyone have anecdotes they'd like to share about this hitch cord? I have the opportunity to buy some of this in bulk at a good price. $128 for 142 feet which is .90/ft. It appears to be $1.95/ft and is out of stock at Treestuff for reference. Any input is appreciated.

    First Time DRT

    When I was first buying gear to learn climbing, I bought a 150' piece of 12-strand called Blue Ox from Amazon. My first rec climb was with a couple experts and they voiced some concern about whether this rope would work with either my RR or Wrench so I used one of their climb lines instead...

    Which knot and why?

    I'm making myself a long lanyard (just shy of 30') out of a leftover piece of New England KMIII. I'm tying a nice heavy steel CT Pillar carabiner on the throwing end because it has some good weight to it and want to know what you rope expert guys think is the better knot. My instinct is to tie...

    Good Deals on Rope

    I'm pretty new to climbing and this forum (although I've been on Arboristsite for a long time) but I recently found an Ebay seller that has good deals on rope and thought some of you may be interested. The seller is "castobargains" and they're based in Georgia. They sell odd lengths of all...
