The Arizona Vortex Guidebook

Join us as we break down the mode of use, applied forces, the tendency of movement, guy angles, the application of physics designed into Arizona Vortex, and working with artificial high directionals.

What is the best way to use The Vortex Guidebook?

“Specialized training and experience in technical rigging is absolutely essential for safety use. This manual/guidebook is not a substitute for hands-on training, but it will accelerate it beyond your wildest dreams”.

About the Course

The Vortex is ideal for a wide range of applications, from access and egress to confined spaces, to the negotiation of complex edges in wilderness environments. The Vortex is the multipod of choice for professionals within the rescue, industrial rope access, construction, military, and entertainment rigging industries.

The Vortex User Manual was written and edited by Rob Stringer, in collaboration with Rock Exotica who provided the product specifications and illustrations. Rob Stringer is the Founder / Director of Highpoint Access & Rescue in Rockhampton, Queensland Australia. Highpoint Access & Rescue was established in 2003, primarily to service the rope access, work at heights and confined space safety needs of Queensland’s electricity generating industry. Over its operational period, Highpoint has grown to provide rope access and professional asset maintenance services to every thermal power station in Queensland, as well as servicing many other industries both on and offshore.

Through extensive use, exhaustive testing (both destructive and non-destructive), and discussions with Reed and other industry leaders, Rob has been able to develop a unique process for the basic Vortex setup. This process and the related “Rules of Thumb” are described in this user manual. Rob has also developed methods to approximate and calculate forces associated with the more complex Vortex rigging, however, this information is not covered in the basic user manual.

Rob is an active level 3 Rope Access Technician and has been a rope access Assessor with the Australian Rope Access Association since 2006.

His first contact with the Arizona Vortex was in 2005 while attending a training program with Reed Thorne of Ropes That Rescue. Rob quickly saw the benefits that the Vortex could offer Highpoint’s operation and the industrial rope access community.
