The Oscillante is a lightweight swing sided pulley for use in improvised hauling systems or crevasse rescue systems. Quick and easy to install and with a fantastic strenght to weight ratio.

The Petzl Kootenay has a large diameter sheave on sealed ball bearings, providing good efficiency and rope care, and the high volume rope channel allows knots to pass through. The Kootenay also has the ability to be used as an anchor thanks the locking pins on the sheave.
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.
