WARNING THIS TOP ANCHOR IS NOT APPROVED BY DMM OR THE MANUFACTURE OF THE PINTO PULLEY (THE PINTO SHOULD NOT BE JAMMED AGAINST ANYTHING)
I haven’t updated the blog in a while and I will blame the singel rope climbing thats been going on, witch has takeing my focus from photos and telling about daily work.
Instead of climbing the branches horizontal this technique allows you to use redirects and go vertical, almost on the outside of the crown.
Singel rope is quicker than doubblerope, because it’s always 1:1, you move along a standing line insted of draging a loop between yourself and the topanchor. The top anchor I use now is as the picture above. The black string is to pull the anchor down from the ground when the work is done.
I also use a floating kneeacender and a pantin, and I hook my hitchclimber to my neck by a small tool carbin. Above it is a ropewrench attaced. (pictures of this will come soon).
In this post i will also squeese in some pictures i actually took at work but did’nt post anything about. So, heres a mash-up.
I like to fell several trees at the same time. Here is a spruce that im anchored in, jumped over to the pine and then back.
From a small fell…
…you can get…
…great support. But. a tree balance best on it’s own. When we put up supports, bind them, they produce less counter weight/wood to hold themself.
We put some air between the stem and support, so if the stem sits down, it lands in the supportin log instred of falling all the way to the ground.
This is all for now, start working on thursday, hope to get something intreseting to document the weeks to come.
