Climbing Technology ALPINE UP
The Climbing Technology ALPINE UP features three possible modes for hand assisted or manual breaking, for traditional or sport climbing, as well as simultaneous or independent belaying, making it the most versatile belay / rappel device on the market today.
The Climbing Technology ALPINE UP 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.
PLEASE NOTE: ALPINE UP is supplied and must be used with the proper CONCEPT SGL HC carabiner with hardcoated wear-proof anodization and ACL system that prevents the possibility of cross loading.
