Transitioning to a 
"twin tension rope system"?

"A Confused Mind Will Always Say NO!" 

 The two tension rope system is the primary system RLA teaches for lowering and raising rescue loads. The two tension rope system provides a safer, and easier method of high angle rescue by eliminating fall factor and shock loading of components in the event of a failure.


Two Tension Systems and High Directionals have never been made more simple!

We Have Your Solution!!!

"This one course elevated our leadership and technicians" 

"You grow by putting yourself in an uncomfortable position. And I think we've done a lot of that in the last three days."

"We brought up about 12 other members from not having any experience with the Vortex to being able to co-lead a mission, likely together, with the skills that they have today and not necessarily need one of the senior members there. If a couple of them were there by themselves, they could rig a high-angle offset with the Vortex and successfully complete the mission."

Mike W. Team Director

Why move To A Twin Tension System?

  • Half the load on each rope.
  • Mirrored systems reduces equipment and irrelevant training
  • ​Anchors are not exposed to overloading.
  • ​Cleaner than main/belay systems
  • ​Impact forces are much lower.

"We used a variety of different high directional configurations, and I think that's what kind of is going to separate this from a lot of other different trainings out there.

No matter what high directional configuration you use, this course is going to be able to help you learn how to use that high directional in several different ways to improve your operations as a whole."

Thoughts from the field

"Discuss new ideas and seek out new training with your teammates..." 
Jason I

"Anyone who is affiliated with a search and rescue team or a technical rescue team should review this... Just the right amount of information to jog away the cobwebs for those who do not use this equipment all the time.  Very worthwhile!!" 
Steve M.

"Thanks for talking clearly and going over details!"
Stephen L.

"The training was very informative and user-friendly.  I learned a lot.  Being a rescue captain, I'm very glad I purchased your training." 
Neal H

"Extremely insightful.  Alway useful to update your current knowledge with new ideas and technology."

Are you interested in knowing even more about 
Twin Tension Systems and AHD use?

We built the RLA TTRS & AHD Training System because there is no reason not to 
incorporate artificial high directionals into your rope rescue team's SOPs.

High directionals are really there to make our lives easier, providing a much 
cleaner and easier path for a rescue litter to take when we're negotiating edges.

 A guide to Artifical High Directionals & Two Tension Rope Systems

This course delves into information beyond what the standard rope technician has been taught in initial training. Inside, we encourage students to think critically about a wide variety of applications with an emphasis on high directional usage.
Two Tension Systems
High Directional Configurations
High Angle Offsets
And More


he 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 course covers:
Mode of Use
Applied Forces
The Tendency of Movement
Guy Angles
The Application of Physics

The Masters Roadmap Success Path has helped thousands of leaders, technicians, and teams move through crisis mode and into a clear lane for growth and expansion.
Roadmaps are meant to be actionable. Without a blueprint, leadership is impossible. To see the whole plan, a blueprint or roadmap is critical.

The Cornerstone: Knowledge & Perception

Leadership is not passed up the ranks because of age, promotions, or certifications - but age, promotions, and certifications may be a part of the leadership journey. Leaders will see authority in the lowliest of people and events, and the great ones will acknowledge them immediately and make accommodations when accordingly. 

Anchors: Your Foundation

Anchors are the most critical component of any rope rescue system. The entire rescue is in jeopardy if the anchors are not reliable. Anchors are the foundation on which we build our rescue systems. Rescuers must quickly decide on an appropriate anchor system for a given rescue situation.

Knot Craft: The Art of Intertwine

By its very nature, vertical rescue is dependent on rope, and the most elemental skill in using rope is tying it into a knot. There are no gray areas, no “in-betweens” in tying knots. “Make only one change and either an entirely different knot is made or no knot at all may result.” Clifford Ashley
