A horrendous thing happened--keep your climbing rope away from the chipper

When we are working in close proximity to the chipper the climb line is not to be much longer than it needs to be for climber to safely reach ground, and should not be able to reach the chipper at all if possible imo.. staionary line is "safer" in this regard vs. A doubled or moving line that requires excess tail laying about the ground while climber is up in tree.
Tying all the excess tail, as much as needed, to something on the opposite side of the chipper can help.
