Compact emergency ascender.
Carry a couple of TIBLOCS clipped to your
harness on your next multi-pitch trad climb
or glacier crossing. This compact, one piece,
mechanical ascender replaces tedious prussik
slings for ascending a fixed rope - whether
you are scrapin' your way back to the high
point after a fall or hauling yourself out
of a cravasse. A TIBLOC also works nicely
as a "progress capture" ratchet
in a rescue "Z rig" or for casual
day pack hauling. Use each TIBLOC with an
locking carabiner for an easy hand hold.
Press your thumb against the Tiblocs spine
- after which your weight can be applied.
