Comparing Two Rope Rescue Systems (Twin Tension)
Presented by: Tom Evans
April 18th at 9:00 PM EDT
Recently, the rope rescue community has been debating the merits of using two kinds of two rope systems. Main and belay systems that have a main line that holds all the load, and a second belay line that is un-tensioned, versus two tension systems, where both ropes hold about half the total load at all times. Here we will explore the strengths and weaknesses of both systems based on testing data, and compare their usefulness and functionality for cave rescue.
