Passing rebelays when ascending ropes
Ascending a rope is quite physical and sometimes long; it is therefore necessary to be efficient and organized when passing rebelays, in order to limit fatigue.
- Carefully read the Instructions for Use used in this technical advice before consulting the advice itself. You must have already read and understood the information in the Instructions for Use to be able to understand this supplementary information.
- Mastering these techniques requires specific training. Work with a professional to confirm your ability to perform these techniques safely and independently before attempting them unsupervised.
- We provide examples of techniques related to your activity. There may be others that we do not describe here.
1. Push the BASIC up just under the knot. Do not jam it against the knot, to leave room for opening the cam.
While standing in the footloop:
- Connect to the anchor with the short lanyard
- Remove the CROLL
2. Hang from the lanyard and reposition the CROLL above the anchor.
3. Move the BASIC above the CROLL. Transfer your weight to the ascenders by taking up the slack rope under the CROLL. Make sure that they are locking. Remove the lanyard and continue your rope ascent. The rope is free for the others.
Starting on an angled rope: put a leg over the rope to make its angle parallel to the CROLL's rope channel.
