The TreeStuff base tie rescue system offers a safe and simple technique to lower a climber from an SRT base tie, by allowing someone on the ground to transfer the weight of the climber onto a separate rope.
After setting a climbing line and tying it off at the base of the tree you simply install 2 butterfly knots, 24" apart, above the base tie. If a rescue becomes necessary a rescuer attaches the included figure 8 descender to the lower knot and the end of the rescue line to the upper knot. After taking up the slack and locking off the figure 8, with a hand on the brake line the rescuer cuts the connecting link of the climbing line between the knots with the included hand pruners. This transfers the weight of the climber to the rescue line and allows safe fast lowering.
