Is it legal to lift the ladder off the ground to prevent teams from hanging?
Teams who lift the ladder are responsible for any damage caused by the maneuver. This includes dropping the ladder on a robot, or causing a team to fall off the ladder by lifting. Thus any damage caused by lifting the ladder would be seen as intentional damage and would result in a disqualification as per <G11>
However, lifting the ladder while no team is on the ladder is a legal strategy to attempt to prevent teams from hanging.
