-two lengths of reinforced jute for use in uplines is strongly recommended.

-suspension ring or set of carabiners (~5 carabiners)

-climbing straps of various lengths, 25" & 50" for starters

Box Tie: The First Two Ropes on SEPT 18

The Third Rope OCT 16

Box Tie and Hip Harness Review Labtime NOV 20

I am excited to watch you enter the world of suspension, but will not allow any unprepared students to do so under my watch, as safety is paramount at this juncture...and from here forward. My intention is that you walk into the Intro to Suspension class feeling familiar with these two very important ties.
