Our SRT series covers all of the fundamentals of 'Stationary rope work positioning', Dan breaks down the climb into segments - Base anchors, canopy tie-in points, redirects, ascending and lateral movement. In each of these segments Dan presents various options to undertake this task/technique that vary from simple options with not much equipment to very gear intensive techniques.
There are many techniques out there, and with the rapid rise and evolution of SRT things are changing constantly, so we have only chosen a select few that we feel help climbers understand some of the options available and help progress, and with this knowledge can go on and choose the best setup for them and their style.
SRT : An arborist climbing system in which the rope is fixed in the canopy or at the base, giving the climber a fixed line to ascend/descend rather the a moving line as in a 'doubled rope technique' system.
SRT series - Introduction
A short introduction to what the series is all about and why we've chosen the techniques we've shown.
SRT series #1 - Base Anchors
Dan runs through five options for tying a base anchor for an SRT system. These range from the most simple to more advanced, expensive equipment.
SRT series #2 - Canopy tie-in points
Dan explains some of the different ways to anchor your SRT system with a canopy tie in point.
SRT series #3 - Redirects
Dan demonstrates some simple and more advanced forms of SRT redirects
SRT series #4 - Ascending
Dan runs through some options for ascending on a stationary rope that can make climbing really easy.
(coming soon) SRT series #5 - Lateral movement
Dan talks about lateral movement climbing on a stationary system compared to a traditional doubled rope system.
(coming soon) SRT series #6 - Full climb
To conclude the series Dan performs a climb on a stationary rope system putting many of the techniques covered in the previous videos into practice.
