WNNER: thebigfriendlymoose


Some things, like safety, are best left out of your hands. The Ergo Belay System, does just that, removing the need to swop hands or take one off the rope to pay it out. Thanks to its unique ergonomic design and grip, the braking hand never has to leave its position on the Ergo Belay System – whether paying-out or taking-in the rope.

I'm getting a message that apparently the comp is now closed?? Assume this is a tech error...
Sorry, technical glitch. Now sorted. Force refresh if you are still getting comp closed. Alan

Why do the belayer´s hands leave the device completely when taking in the rope?
7 Jul, 2015
The belaying in those videos makes me really uncomfortable. So you have to trust the autolocking because you don't normally hold the rope (including when paying out, in the lower video) ? And you also hold the device in it's "unlocked" configuration when paying out slack? Ouch.

It looks the same action as belaying with a Megajul which is really easy to use. I wouldn't worry about it. If you don't think you'd be happy using one, don't enter the comp! ;)
