Single Rope Ascending Systems - An Introduction


14 minutes. Produced in 2003.

Whether one does vertical caving just because they enjoy going up and down a rope, or because pits and climbs always get in the way of exploring a cave (or both), one must learn the proper techniques in order to vertical cave in a safe and efficient manner.

When caving, the most common feature encountered that requires knowledge of vertical techniques is: "the pit". Getting down is usually pretty easy (but it does require a fair amount of knowledge in order to do it safely). But if one goes down, it is usually necessary to get back up.

Getting back up the rope is the main subject of this video. This program is intended to be an introduction to the different techniques and rigs that are used around the world to ascend a rope.

The program will start out with how to set up a climbing rope for training with a heavy emphasis on safety. Then we will cover the workings of different climbing systems such as the Frog system, knots, the rope walker and others. Important aspects of each system will be described, including how to use them in a safe and efficient manner.
