Edelrid Pinch


The Edelrid Pinch is a versatile assisted braking device designed for sports and multi-pitch climbing use. It is the first available device on the market that can attach directly to the central ring of a climbing harness. Thanks to its low, close-to-the-body position, the PINCH does not need to be fixed in place when releasing the rope and the brake rope can always be gripped with all fingers. In addition, the compact belay system provides an increased span, which allows the belayer to pay out 20-30 cm more rope at once.
