Embed Size px x x x x Sharing expertiseMy father, Fernand Petzl, was an artisan and explorer with a passion for caving. For him, creating and refining equipment was a profound pleasure.
He was an obsessive, creative worker who offered his ideas to help his companions by producing the tools they needed to explore the caves of Chartreuse and Vercors France. From my childhood, I was immersed in this enthusiasm for discovery.
Afterwards, at Petzl, we have always started with this idea:designing tools for the people who use them. Tools that help them progress and commit in vertical or dark terrain. Innovative, useful, safe tools, often designed above and beyond the requirements of existing gear. Petzl has introduced changes to practices and techniques that have allowed revolutions to take place in activities related to lighting and verticality - the two areas of expertise in the company.
The headlamp in the mountains, the GRIGRI in climbing For forty years innovation has been at the heart of our business - and it remains so now more than ever.
By its very nature, progression has no limits:we are constantly inventing new solutions, and there is no reason for this to stop. Today I hope that we share the experience and technical expertise we have acquired at Petzl as widely as possible with those who participate in these activities.
It is with the desire to continue to propose and share solutions for progression that we have prepared this edition of the Petzl catalogue.
Paul Petzl President. Information is non-exhaustive. Refer to the other pages as well as to the user instructions and technical manuals. Technical training is essential. However, learning the right moves, both for climbing and for using the equipment, significantly reduces the risk of accident.
But this learning is not everything. Force of habit, over-confidence, and fatigue can all reduce vigilance. For greater security, why not take advantage of the fact that there are usually two climbers? Particularly before really getting started, when the equipment is being put into place. At the crag, as in the mountains, making it a rule to partner check before leaving the ground will make the climbing more relaxed.
Belayer check by climber: Rope positioned correctly in belay device Locked carabiner Knot tied at end of rope. I can still hear the voices coming through the fog of my bewildered conscience: "He wasnt tied in look, the rope is still hanging from the top! Not me! And yet Yet it had been a Sunday like any other. Sure, I was a bit tired, a little preoccupied, and in a somewhat noisy gym. Nothing extraordinary, really. It was neither the serac fall of the century, nor the collapse of the West Face of the Drus!
No reassuring explanation to help me accept the unacceptable. Reasoning only increased my incomprehension. In my twenty-five years of amateur mountaineering and climbing, never an accident, not even a close call. Maybe one time a few rocks heard falling a bit too close Im quite a safety fanatic, according to my friends.
A case in point: I had even backed up my sons belay to an overstuffed pack. And yet that Sunday I made an error that could have cost me my life. So, was it fate? A simple oversight: counting on only your own vigilance shows a dangerous lack of humility. Any day, a seemingly innocent series of events can lead to what many experts have sadly experienced. This one day could be your last. However, with a simple partner check of equipment prior to climbing, it is easy to practically remove this type of risk.
Participants in other exposed activities, such as divers, have understood and implemented this concept for a long time. Why not we climbers, mountaineers and cavers? It is time for us, specially the regular participants, to adopt new habits. Romain Lcot Petzl General Director. The lead climber is stuck at a bolt in the middle of a pitch. The easiest option is to be lowered on top-rope, leaving the quickdraws and asking someone to collect them later, or collecting them yourself after climbing a route next to it.
If none of these options is possible, how can you descend and clean the route with limited risk? Lower or rappel? Place a quick link in the bolt between the quickdraw and the rock.
Thread the rope through the quick link; lock it tightly. Remove the quickdraw. Lower to the next bolt. Repeat the operation. Descend and clean the route. Consequences of a broken bolt If the top bolt breaks, the climber will be held by the second bolt.
Transfer weight to your feet to reduce tension on the quickdraw. Make a Prusik knot with a cordelette and attach it to the belay loop of your harness with a locking carabiner. Consequences of a broken bolt If the top bolt breaks, the climber will be held under the next quickdraw by the Prusik knot.
Technique tested on a 4m fall with an 80kg weight, using a 7mm Prusik cordelette and a single 9. Observations: fall arrested cordelette and rope intact. Stress on the bolt The stress on the bolt is approximately 25daN higher with lowering than with rappelling for two people of 70kg. This number is negligible compared to the strength required of a bolt daN. The stresses placed on a bolt when lowering or rappelling are therefore practically identical. Lowering is therefore recommended since it allows the climber to remain tied in throughout the lowering process.

No need to go quickly; rather, establish a good rhythm. Make a knot at the end of a sling and clip it into the carabiner. This will be your footloop. Place the quickdraw into the sling above the knot. The length of the sling should allow you to stand up in it for ascending. This maneuver creates slack in the rope above the tie-in knot.
For maximum efficiency, keep the body aligned with the rope. Imagine that it is impossible to grab the rope or the rock, or to be lowered by the second not enough rope. The only solution is to be autonomous and ascend the rope alone. On multi-pitch routes, they should never be forgotten! Post on Nov views. Category: Documents 19 download.

Lowering off two points Lowering with Prusik Lafouche Descend on a single bolt? Observations: fall arrested cordelette and rope intact kg kg kg kg kg kgAvoid the risk of breakage When it is difficult to estimate the strength of a bolt, it is necessary to use a technique that takes into account the risk of the anchor breaking.
The Prusik knot is a multidirectional knot, jamming in both directions. I n multi-pitch climbs, a situation can quickly become complicated and delicate.
