    Rock climbing harness in the tree?

    I am helping a friend put together some basic equipment for securing himself in his pine tree. He has a drone and he wants to get up high and see the drone above the treetops =) He will have steps mounted on the tree for easy climbing, but for security I'm thinking SRT rope with an Petzel ID...

    Hitchhiker with zigzag+?

    Seasoned climber here. Worked all over the country in all different species. Currently doing utility climbing in the PNW. As anyone who's done utiluty work knows, it's a different ballgame compared to private work. 15-20 climbs a day means we aren't setting ropes before we climb, and yes we are...

    Akimbo Tips and Tricks?

    Hey everyone, I snagged an akimbo during Black Friday and remember seeing a post here awhile back that had some tricks on using the akimbo for work. The one that sticks out in my head was a way to draw the tail end of your climbing line through the connecting carabiner and using it to soft lock...

    SRT, DdRT, DRT & Now DmRT

    While arguing over acronyms on another TB thread, and when researching this issue independently, it became abundantly evident that there is yet another climbing method, in addition to DRT, SRT & DdRT. DRT, DdRT and DmRT are all different. DmRT uses both legs of single climbing line that’s...

    SAKA Mini Knee Ascender Gear Review

    This seems like the right place for this video since it is specific to SRT. Finally got around to doing a gear review for the SAKA Mini, with some things I have learned climbing on it for the last few months.

I added a couple bearings and a fixed gate (parts I salvaged from my daughters old razor scooter) to help with slack tending and to keep the rope trapped along...

    SCAM 3:1 MA and Remotely Retrievable Redirect

    Hey all, I have been playing around with this for the last few months and I think there is enough here to release it into the wild. I am calling it Single Carabiner Access Method (SCAM), because it needed a simple name, and the ideas are likely a conglomeration of things I ripped off ;) As a...

    Akimbo Rec Ride on Blue Moon

    Slowly pushing my limits when I get the chance, this was about 45 feet up a 70 foot burl oak, lots going on here with my current setup. I am still not sure about the shoulder straps and pulley, but they do keep me vertical so I can let go and chill at any point without hanging from my arms. The...

    SRS Speed Climb Event?

    Now that SRS is becoming so popular with arborists I am wondering if there would be any interest in adding a SRS speed climbing event to some of the competitions?
