The Petzl Tibloc 2 is a compact and lightweight emergency ascender which is an essential back up on any big wall or mountain route. Easy to use it slides up the rope but when downward pressure is applied the angled teeth bite the rope holding it firmly in place, even in muddy or icy conditions. This 2nd version has an additional sprung top to keep the Tibloc pushed up against the rope.
Suitable for use with 8 to 11mm single ropes with a locking carabiner. It's best used as a Prusik replacement in self rescue situations but it can also be used as a progress capture device in a hauling system. A small hole in the top of Tibloc allows some accessory cord to be attached for racking purposes.
