Via Ferrata Lanyards & Harnesses

Helmets, harnesses and the specialised cowstails required to make this excellent 'expedition down time' activity, safe!

Petzl Scorpio Via Ferrata Lanyard Set 
£77.40

Petzl Scorpio Via Ferrata Lanyard Set

Specially designed shock-absorbing lanyards to deal with the high fall-factors that can be generated by long falls down fixed vertical wires (or ropes). Tied rope cowstails for caving will *not* cope with this! This small, neat and very easy-to-use set consists of a 'one use' tear apart shock absorber, one short lanyard (for resting, on rungs or similar) plus two longer tape lanyards to make the clips on the wire. These are elasticated to facilitate long reaches, while preventing them from getting in the way, or catching up, at other times. The set comes with two Vertigo slide-lock alloy karabiners. These are strong, easy to operate one-handed, and have a wide gate opening to facilitate clipping on big wires.
Petzl Vertigo Wire Lock 
£14.64

Petzl Vertigo Wire Lock

Big alloy krab with a wide gate opening to allow large wires to be clipped easily. The locking mechanism is a major safety asset in big sliding falls, where karabiners can easily be knocked open by impacts against rock, stemples and suchlike. The lock is easily opened one handed, and engages automatically (but visually check it anyway!). You could also put these karabiners on your caving cowstails; although you'll want to keep them grit free to keep that mechanism smooth. Weight 97g. Major axis strength 25KN; minor axis strength 10KN; open gate strength 8KN Made in Italy.
