This ultra-durable construction and super compact design are ideal for both daily snow study and fast avalanche response. The unique handle that can be set up in two configurations for digging test pits or rapid snow removal. The large blade moves lots of snow quickly, and a flat-bottom profile helps you get a good clean face on your pit wall. An extendable shaft and large D handle increase comfort for long days in the field involving multiple pits and speeds up digging time during an emergency.
The Spoc is an ultralight progress capture pulley which is ideal for small hauling, crevasse rescue, and emergency ascending. At only 60 g you'll hardly notice this tiny bit of kit, but makes setting up rope systems easy and more efficient. The pulley itself rests on ball bearings, giving up to 92% efficiency, and fits from 7 mm to 11 mm rope giving you a diverse device for any ropes you might be carrying.
The Petzl Crevasse Rescue Kit is a definite essential piece of kit for alpine climbing, mountaineering, glacial travel (whether on foot or ski) for training courses. This kit allows for rapid deployment and use in rescues where someone falls in a crevasse.
At 85g this progress capture pulley is perfect to keep on your harness for emergency use. Originally designed for crevasse rescue in assisted and z hoists we also feel that it is light enough that it could live on the back of your harness year round for general climbing rescue being much more efficient and smoother to use than a prussik loop.
