CMC Rescue Arizona Vortex

So named from its development in the rugged Red Rock highlands of northern Arizona. CMC Rescue's Arizona Vortex (AZV) was created from years of trial and error. Having worked with crude but functional lashed timber frames at Sedona-based Ropes That Rescue, Reed Thorne developed the AZV with the help of Rock Thompson at Rock Exotica. The AZ Vortex represents the essence of at-the-edge frames, which no standard multi-pod can match today.

The father of all portable artificial high directionals (AHDs), CMC Rescue's Arizona Vortex (AZV) is a tripod, bipod and monopod in one all-inclusive kit. Its precision machined two-piece head can be rigged as a standard tripod or, in advanced applications, as an A-frame, a sideways A-frame, a gin pole or a multitude of other configurations. The tripod can be formed into an easel A-frame with adjustable leg lengths. The versatile third leg allows rescuers to set up an artificial high directional in virtually any urban, industrial or wilderness location. On A-frame and easel A-frame applications, pulleys can be attached using quick-pins directly into the Head Set without using carabiners, eliminating valuable lost headspace and working clearance. This feature makes the AZV ideal for use with high lines and tracking line offsets. The extra attachment points also work well for rope access where several lines may be needed over the edge. Both the Raptor and Flat feet sets are both included to provide secure footing options on varying terrain.

Configurations:

TRI

Tripod - The most stable configuration features and articulating third leg, which allows the head to be moved closer to an edge than a conventional tripod.

Bi

Bipod - Offers good stability in one direction but must be securely guyed. It can be positioned square or sideways to the direction of the load.

Gin

Gin Pole - This least stable configuration requires secure guying but maybe the only choice when there is room for only one leg.
