Alpine-Up Kit

The Alpine Up is the most complete and versatile belay / rappel device ever produced. It has been developed especially for mountaineering and it can be used with half, twin and single ropes. Extremely advantageous, it allows self-locking abseiling and it can be used in three different belay modes, depending on the terrain.

The CLICK UP MODE (Hand assisted braking) allows:
- belaying a lead climber on multi pitch sport climbing routes (bolted) (fig. 1-2);
- self-locking abseiling, using the folding handle (fig. 7);
- absolute safety, even if the rope is incorrectly inserted(fig. 8).
The DYNAMIC MODE (Manual braking) allows:
- belaying a lead climber on alpine route or ice climbing (friends, nuts and pitons)
(fig. 3-4);
- braking friction with “V” grooves, similar to a tube device;
- aabseiling with “V” grooves brake.
The GUIDE MODE allows:
- independent and self-locking belaying of one or two seconding climbers (fig. 5);
- possibility of gradual releasing of a second under tension, by placing a biner in the proper hole
