You’ve got a lifeline, but now you need a way to make sure you are secured to it. That’s where rope grabs come in. Rope grabs are extremely convenient and easy to use. They provide 100% tie off by staying attached to your lifeline and moving up and down with you as you ascend or descend. These little devices work by latching onto the rope when they sense a fall preventing you from getting injured. Not to mention, they save a ton of time because you don’t have to stop every few feet to reattach your lanyard as you climb.
Ascenders are designed for ascending fixed ropes, but they can also be used to address a wide range of situations: helping a second, hauling a victim out of a crevasse or up a wall...
At Donegans, we stock a wide range of ascenders from trusted leading brands such as Petzl, Rock Exotica and Stein.
We are Irelands only stockist of the Rock Exotica range, who make the game changing AKimbo, which eliminates any fall back when climbing to make clibing much easier.
