California’s New Bullards Dam is one of the tallest Dam’s in America. The team have only 3 days to place 13 targets on the 645ft dam face. The targets are crucial for monitoring shifts in the dam from seismic activity. Trask engineers an ingenious system, something that will allow the team to move more quickly but still remain safe.
Then it’s off to Colorado where Trask and his team only have a few hours to ascend a wind turbine and install special bird detection sensors. Working on turbine blades can quickly go south if Trask loses control on the ropes - turning him into a human wrecking ball.
