The Arizona Vortex is the ultimate artificial high directional system (AHD). The Vortex can be set up in multiple configurations including tripod, bi-pod and monopod. Separately the two heads create an a-frame, gin pole, a combination of the two, as well as a multitude of other configurations. The Vortex can be used in a variety of situations including mountain and confined space rescue as well as rope and work access. Many companion products exist to extend the functionality of the Vortex, such as the Omni-block, AZTEK, Kootenay and AZORP, which allow it to meet virtually any requirement for a portable AHD system.
