How to use a throwline, throwbag and rope launcher to get a rope into a tree for tree climbing


We have updated our arborist product details to include some information on how to use throwbags, throwlines and rope launchers to get a rope up into a tree.  This includes a helpful YouTube video showing how to use a Cambium Saver / Treesbee False Crotch.

Once the rope is up you then have the choice of using the traditional single rope tree climbing technique using either prussiks / hitch climber / Petzl Zigzag, or the more mechanically based dual ‘rope access’ type technique using hand ascenders, chest ascenders and a back-up device on a second rope.
