Product Description

Just out this year, this product is a rappel and rigging device designed specifically for canyoneering. It encompasses functions of the Figure 8, sticht plate and gigi in one device.

As a rappel device, it handles single or double strand of rope from 7.5mm to 10.5mm. It is easy to add friction during rappel and simple to lock off.

For rigging, you can do releasable figure 8, stone 8 set-up, and use as an anchor rigging plate. And much more. Designed by Rich Carlson.

I am so comfortable with my Pirana for canyoneering use that I have not yet bought a Totem. But I know it’s only a matter of time. The uses of this device, which I’ve seen demonstrated, are incredibly extensive. In addition to the uses listed above in the Product Description, the Totem can be used as a “trolley” for guided rappels and guided hauls and lowers. In addition, Rich Carlson does workshops on use of the totem for a nominal price above that of the device
