Self-braking descender for single rope
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!
Designed for use on rope between 9mm and 13mm. The self braking effect varies depending on rope diameter (larger rope - more braking) and weight (more weight, less braking).
