Petzl 5 Bar Rack


Petzl's 5 Bar Rack is an update to the classic brake bar descender. The design and configuration of the bars makes setting up and inserting the rope easy. The device allows the user to adjust the number of bars engaged on the rope to obtain the necessary the amount of friction while descending to adapt to changing conditions such as rope weight, terrain, etc. The rack is desgined to use on long descents on single or double ropes.

Petzl Huit


The Petzl Huit is a classic figure 8 rapelling device for descending on single or double ropes. Its square shape reduces twisting of the ropes and the formation of a lark's head hitch. The small hole can be used either with thin ropes if necessary, or as a belay plate. For use on ropes from 8 to 13mm diameter.

Petzl ZigZag


The petzl ZigZag is a mechanical Prusik that allows the user to move around efficiently in a tree using a classic Prusik pulley system technique. The friction chain provides precision and fluidity when moving around. The pulley is mounted on sealed ball bearings to allow the slack to be taken up easily. Can be used on either doubled ropes or a single rope, providing great versatility.

Petzl Simple


As its name implies, the Petzl Simple is an easy-to-use caving descender. It can be used with 8.5 to 11 mm diameter low stretch kern-mantle ropes. Reduced bulk and low weight simplify progression in narrow passages. The pulleys can be rotated or replaced to prolong the duration of use over time.

Kong Oka Set


The Kong Oka is a new descender especially conceived for canyoning, designed not only for progression on rope but also for the use in emergency, recovery and rescue situations, very difficult to manage with other devices. The use is quick, safe and effective in every condition.

£34.00 inc. VAT £31.88 inc. VAT

Petzl Stop


The Petzl Stop is the most popular descender, being easy to use and having the backup of the automatic brake (remember to lock it off if you've stopped though!). It can also be used instead of a chest jammer in an emergency on short pitches. The downside is that it can get a bit warm on long descents of a dry rope (think Alum pot North West) so take a squeezy bottle of water with you!

£119.70 inc. VAT £106.16 inc. VAT

Petzl Chicane


The Chicane auxiliary braking device allows Zigzag and Zigzag Plus mechanical Prusiks to be used on single ropes. It provides continuous additional friction on descents. The excellent compatibility of the Chicane and mechanical Prusik as an assembled unit ensures smooth rope glide through the brake during ascents. The ergonomic handle provides excellent grip and facilitates movement while limb walking. Thanks to the openable side plate, installation is quick and easy.
