Mike and Chris just returned from another great ITRS conference.  This year’s conference was held in Seattle from November 1-4.  As usual the conference showcased a number of quality presentations about the latest in technical rescue research, including a presentation and key note address from the well renowned John Dill of YOSAR.  Mike presented RfR’s latest research on multi-point anchor equalization.  The full report and videos can be found here: http://dev.riggingforrescue.com/AnchorFavoring.html
