One of the most common questions I hear from riggers just beginning to suspend is how to actually attach and secure support lines on the beautiful harnesses they have tied. This class focuses entirely on the support line: methods for attaching with and without carabiners, attaching to multiple points on a harness, gaining effective mechanical advantage for lifting, securing lines, and considerations for varying rope materials. May be interesting to advanced students as well, if they are not familiar with some of the more unusual techniques I use.


Requirements: Ability to tie basic hip and chest harnesses for suspension, the rope you need to tie them, and a couple extra carabiners beyond any you use on/as your ring
