Generally Tyrolean Traverses are simple to set up in principle, especially if you already have a very solid base in anchor setup. There are always concerns about the forces acting on the ropes, slings, carbines and anchors.The first principle of a Tyrolean is always choose absolutely bomb proof anchors and the anchoring equipment. Strain on the anchors and related gear will be very high.When the rope is hanging, it forms a curved shape which many call a parabola. When you put a load on the rope it’ll be a triangle. Your load will always want to slide to the middle, so forces are always calculated from there anyway.
