VT Prusik

This episode showed how to tie a VT Prusik, if we could release it under 2kn and 4kn loads and then pulled to destruction.  Brent Roth, a canyoneer, shows how he uses it to go up and then convert immediately to go back down.  Cory Grossman, an arborist, shows us where it is commonly used in their world.  It's fun to cross pollinate the different sports and learn tricks I know i'll use in my activities.

Sterling did pull tests on VT Prusiks and they tested larger diameter ropes and pulled to 4.45kN and measured slippage and did short 0.3 fall factor drop tests.
