Climbing SRT (Single Rope Technique)

Climbing SRT (Single Rope Technique)
How many climbers out there are hesitant to start climbing SRT? SRT work positioning (Rope Wrench, Rope Runner, Unicender, etc.) hasn’t been around all that long so I can see why you could be a bit leery about it but SRT ascending has been around for a LONG time and it is well worth it for you to give it a go!

Petzl Alveo Helmet

Petzl Alveo Helmet
One of the best things I have found for keeping cool on hot summer days is a vented helmet. By having just a little bit of airflow inside my helmet really makes a world of difference when the temperature outside starts to rise. Even in the winter time a little bit of cool air on the head can keep your glasses from fogging up and keep you from overheating!

THE PETZL ZIG ZAG HELPS YOU CLIMB TREES WITH EASE
No Easier Way to Tend Your Rope I have been using the Petzl Zig Zag for three years and have absolutely loved every minute of it! This device is simply one of the smoothest devices made for Double Rope Technique (DdRT) climbing. If you’re a climber who wants to move quickly and smoothly through the tree without getting bound up by friction caused by wet ropes or a wet hitch cord, then the Zig Zag is just what you need. Don’t let its size fool you; this device combines multiple tools into one small and convenient package that helps you climb trees with ease.

Friction Saver: Stop Hurting Trees

Posted by Professional Tree Climber on 11/16/2016 to Tree Climbing Gear
friction saver can a save tree

Climbers have been throwing their ropes over limbs and around tree trunks for centuries. Unbeknownst to them, unfortunately the cambium layer of the trees experience abusive amounts of friction that can actually crush the cambial tissue as well as wear the protective bark off, leaving the cambium exposed to pests and other pathogens that can cause harm to the trees.

Don't Drop The Rope!

Posted by Professional Tree Climber on 11/8/2016 to Tree Climbing Safety
DON'T DROP THE ROPE

Have you ever been out at the end of a limb, just about to tie it off with your rigging line when the unimaginable happens... you drop the rope! You watch in humility and horror as the line zips over limbs, leaves, up the trunk and right through the block. As soon as it hits the ground, the ranting begins from your ground crew as you sit on your limb in complete embarrassment. So, how do you keep your butterfingers from letting the rope go next time?
