Bella documentazione Paolo. Mi domandavo che scopo può avere un'arrampicata del genere e ho trovato la risposta qui :)

Grazie Greta, di permettermi col tuo link di spiegare questo oggetto misterioso.

A bosun's chair is a type of supported rigging harness, originally designed for use on boats but also employed in other industries as well. The bosun's chair is both a convenience and a safety tool: convenient because it keeps the hands free for work, and safe because it prevents potentially dangerous falls from heights. On ships, a bosun's chair is used for working aloft in the rigging, often for long periods of time. In other industries such as exterior maintenance for buildings, bosun's chairs are frequently used because they are affordable, safe, and easy to rig.
