A simple, effective, and compact rope clamp that works well in pulley systems, ascending a rope, or hauling. Also an ideal back-up for standard ascenders or for those who wish to travel as light as possible.
- Much lighter and more compact than standard ascenders, plus faster to set up than prusik knots and works well in pulley systems
- Tibloc should be used only with carabiners made of uniform oval or round stock in order to prevent damage to the rope
- Caution: hot-forged carabiners with T-shaped stock, such as the Petzl Spirit, should NOT be used
- The Tibloc is an amazing little tool when used properly, but can easily be misused; it is essential to read the instructions to prevent rope damage!
