Self Belay Device
In a unique way the SILENT
PARTNER gives you a more efficient, more
natural feeling solo belay that can be used
on both free and aid routes and without
a chest harness. This freedom allows you
to go climbing on your own schedule and
not be limited to bouldering, biking or
taking a hike for the rest of the day. It
is also a great training tool for those
wanting to do repeated "laps"
on a favorite pitch or top rope problem.
The SILENT PARTNER capitalizes on the frictional
properties of the clove hitch knot supercharged
with an internal centrifugal locking mechanism
- much like an auto seat belt - to arrest
a rapidly moving rope and "catch" a fall.
Move slowly - rope feeds free, take a dive
and your SILENT PARTNER will lock on the
rope. Be sure to follow the manufacturers
instructions and tips... and don't forget
to tie your back up knots! Used with 9.8-11mm
dynamic rope and two pear shaped locking
carabiners for attachment to your harness.

WITHOUT ROPE DRAG! Eliminate
Rope drag when soloing by
wearing one of our JET
or STEALTH PACKS to carry your
rope, water and rack your gear.
Rather than having to pull up the
weight of the rope (plus drag) take
it with you! Tie a big knot in the
end of the rope (and every 15-20
feet) then flake loosely in the
pack. As you climb up, the rope
is pulled out of the pack, over
your shoulder and down through your
SILENT PARTNER. Enjoy the extra
freedom & confidence knowing
that the slack end of your rope
can't get hung up - on a knob, in
a crack or around a bush.
