Mechanical Advantage – Las Vegas

December 8, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm MST


In this classroom workshop you will increase your understanding of mechanical advantage and its applications. Not just for rescue; you will learn practical applications for tensioning rope systems and how mechanical advantage can either increase or decrease the loads we put on our anchors.

Topics covered will include:

  • simple, compound and complex mechanical advantage
  • the difference between theoretical and actual mechanical advantage
  • understanding the T method for calculating mechanical advantage
  • when friction works for us and when it works against us
  • simple math to understand the affect of mechanical advantage on an anchor
  • how to create an improvised progress capture device
  • how to rig a piggy back “set of fours” on the fly
  • simple progressions when more mechanical advantage is needed
  • improvisation with gear you already carry
