Topic - Climbing wall about to ban Click Up & Smart on centre ropes

hsv - on 14 Nov 2013
We are considering banning the use of the Climbing Technology Click Up and the Mammut Smart Belay Device on our centre ropes.

Reason: Unlike an ATC or Grigri, both the rope and the metal part of the belay device, share contact with the same part of the karabiner. This means that any damage caused to the karabiner by the metal part of the belay device, will cut up and damage the rope where it runs over the karabiner.
