ISC Squirrel Tether with Pulley
The new ISC Squirrel Tether with pulley is manufactured from Aluminium. This ensures that twist and flex in the Rope Wrench system, is minimal. This means that the Rope Wrench remains in the optimal low friction position during ascent, (allowing the climber to achieve maximum climb efficiency). Furthermore, ensures that the Wrench engages efficiently, as required during lateral movements and descent.
The Squirrel is fitted with a stopper bollard, which keeps the Rope Wrench correctly positioned. This helps to ensure correct engagement on the rope. The stopper bollard also prevents the Rope Wrench from pinching/squashing the user’s hand. This means that the user can safely handle the upper or lower part of the tether when tending/adjusting the system, on the rope.
The Squirrel can be used with an SRS Chest Harness, for hands-free tending of the system, while ascending. The Squirrel offers a choice of four SRS Chest Harness attachment points. This allows users to position their harness, according to the type of chest harness used- and to their personal preference.
The secondary aperture of the Squirrel Pulley provides an attachment point for the addition of a secondary system, which means that the Squirrel system can be used for rescues.
The Squirrel can be used with the 11-13mm Rope Wrench (RP280) and /or the new 13mm-optimised Rope Wrench (RP283).
