WATSON LAKE and the GRANITE DELLS PRESCOTT, ARIZONA

The Granite Dells of Prescott are one of Arizona’s best kept secrets. The course-grained rock is amazing for photography, biking, hiking, climbing, and teaching rigging in rescue. The town of Prescott nearby has one of the true Western historic districts, along with famous “Whiskey Row” and touts many great restaurants, bistros, micro breweries, wine tastings, art galleries and antique stores. Fun craft and art festivals in the downtown Courthouse Square are common at all times of the year.

THE ARIZONA VORTEX

The ARIZONA VORTEX (or AZV) is so named from its development in the rugged highlands of northern Arizona’s Oak Creek Canyon through the rigging and rescue school, Ropes That Rescue. Reed Thorne, the school’s owner developed the AZV with the help of Rock Thompson at Rock Exotica, in Utah. The AZV was created from years of trial and error and of having worked with crude but functional lashed wood frames at RTR. It represents the essence of at-the-edge frames which no standard tripod can match today.

The ARIZONA VORTEX is manufactured from T-6 aluminum by Thompson Manufacturing Inc. (Rock Exotica) in Clearfield, Utah and is one of the most versatile and state of the art artificial high directional (AHD) available to rescue and rope access in industry. With training from Ropes That Rescue (the "Arizona" designer), you may use this frame in a variety of ways and in any number of environments from industry to wilderness. It is ideal for confined space rescue, mine rescue, cliff rescue and industrial rescue. It is also well suited to bridge inspectors, rope access, the construction trades and the movie industry.
