Named from its development in the rugged Red Rock highlands of northern Arizona, the Arizona Vortex Kit (Vortex) is a unique multipod that was created from years of experimental development. Having worked with crude but functional lashed timber frames at Sedona-based Ropes That Rescue, Reed Thorne developed the Vortex in collaboration with Rock Thompson at Rock Exotica. The Vortex represents the essence of at-the-edge frames, which no standard multipod can match today.

The originator of modern artificial high directionals (AHD)s, the Vortex 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, Sideways A-frame, 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 application. When configured in the A-frame and Easel A-Frame applications, pulleys can be attached directly into the Head Set using the included quick-pins rather than carabiners, retaining valuable headspace and working clearance. The Vortex is 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 included to provide secure footing options on varying terrain and industrial surfaces.
