A-frame walking

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Pioneering challenge to build an a frame and walk it a set distance, usually in a race. The frame is manned by a jockey who helps the legs swing when pivoted to move the frame. A minimum of four people to hold ropes from the top to support the frame at all times.


3x spars per frame plus 8 lashings. Helmet is advised for jockey.


Build the A frames using square lashings. Ensure that the two legs below the ledger are the same length, otherwise the frame will just pivot around in a circle.
