Rigging: Tip tying

Description:
The rigging block is set high in the tree at a point above a designated drop zone. The webbing strap or rope is then attached as far out near the tip of the branch as possible. This can be done for a few reasons, it can help to swing the limb round laterally while still hinged at the butt end (to avoid objects below). Another reason is to rig a more upright section to the ground butt end first. Sections can also be raised while still hinged using this method



Additional info:
This method is most productive when a webbing strap/loop runner is used with a steel carabiner.
