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!
Rules are rules, please don’t reuse parts you’ve made before build season
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.
