Easy triple climb solution

Many teams this year are working on incredible and unique mechanisms to get multiple climbs. While 1836 has no immediate plans to add climbing functionality, I thought I might share my latest idea for how to implement a triple climb with ease.

Step 0: Email blast the teams at your event encouraging them to bring Steamworks climbers/ropes.

Step 1: Climb on your own.

Step 2: Drop down two Airship davits (or creatively engineered equivalent) holding your partner's ropes.

Step 3: Be happy there's no touchpad poorly designed climbers can miss.

See you at AZN North!

Re: Easy triple climb solution

This is illegal because it would cause your bumpers to be outside of the bumper zone due to the ropes becoming the bottom of your robot.

Unless you hang vertically.

Re: Easy triple climb solution

Or, don't climb yourself. Just attach something to the rung with two ropes hanging down, and back away to the switch, paying out a string to keep it "attached". Then the other two bots climb the dangling ropes.

No, it would be legal provided the ropes are flexible enough to allow the robot to stay in the bumper zone when placed on the ground.

Not at all. When the robot is suddenly placed on a flat floor, the ropes would hit the floor and coil / deform, leaving the bumpers within the bumper zone.

If this was how the rule worked, any climber that drops anything below the surface of the platform (like 118) would be illegal, but the Q&A is very clear on this one.

I stand corrected. I still prefer ramps over this idea because all you need to do is drive forward instead of adding a winch on your robot. However I would like to see it attempted at some point.
