Win a Climbing Technology Be Up and Axis HMS SGL Karabiner Winner

WINNER: Bullwinkle, pete1081

Climbing Technology Be Up  © Climbing Technology
Multiuse belay / abseil device with innovative and compact design (registered design), suitable for use with half, twin and single ropes for mountaineering, multi-pitch sport climbing and trad routes. Intuitive and easy to use, the Be Up has a modular braking system to optimise braking with all types of rope and allow the auto-locking and independent belaying of two seconds.
 

The particular shape of the Be Up‘s body allows rope to be paid out fluidly, rapidly and without jams. While belaying the leader on a multipitch route using two ropes, the Be-Up lets you pay out one rope while the other is locked-off - the only device that lets you do this (see Fig 1). The Be Up also offers effective, modular braking of the rope, with the “V” notches are specially designed to guarantee better braking control when arresting a fall, abseiling or bringing up seconds. 

The Be Up‘s special shape and the attachment ring built into the body allow you to bring up one or two seconds using twin or half ropes with Ø ≥ 7.3 mm. You can continue to bring-up one second while the other is hanging with their rope locked-off in the Be Up (see Fig 2) the unlocking of the rope and lowering of one free-hanging second, without difficulty, with twin or half Ø ≥ 7.3 mm ropes. Be Up is the only such device that lets you do this, simply by inserting a normal HMS carabiner in the unlocking hole (see Fig 3); rapidly switching from taking-in (GUIDE MODE) to belaying the leader, for leading through; abseiling descents, keeping the ropes separate. The “V” notches allow you to effectively control the rate of descent, without twisting the ropes.
