Show Description

Simplicity often yields the best results. This simple taco shaped piece of metal is really a cam that can lock over a rope and press it against a carabiner. The result is the lightest weight emergency ascender you can buy. Superb for crevasse rescue and hauling, or running along a fixed rope back up on slopes. Please note that the Tibloc is for emergency or occasional use only and care must be taken to engage the cam correctly.

  • Use only with a minimum of 10mm diameter, round or oval-stock locking carabiners.
  • Use with ropes 8 to 11mm.
  • CE certified.
