Rope Intensive : Intro to Suspension Transitions

with Creative Mayhem

About the class:

This is a 3-hour mini-intensive that will be a combination of lecture and hands on tying. The intended audience is people who are comfortable with the basics of static suspension and are looking to start transitions. We will break down the concepts of rope suspension transitions, discuss safety concerns, and go through a challenging transition sequence in a guided environment.


Riggers must be able to tie a suspension worthy 3 Rope TK or equivalent chest harness, a suspension worthy hip harness with an attachment point in the front, and must be comfortable tying suspension lines. Bottoms must have experience in suspension, preferably with the rigger they are taking the class with. If you are uncertain if you meet these prerequisites, please check with Creative Mayhem ahead of time.


Every tying pair will need about 10-12 lengths of rope in good condition (however many you need for suspension, plus a couple more), suspension point hardware (carabiners, rigging plate, or ring), and a cutting implement. At least one extra carabiner is strongly recommended. An aftercare blanket and/or pillow is optional but nice to have.
