    Take a life-line with you.

    Drop nightmarish cornices safely and create clean cuts for your rutschblock tests with the steel Brooks-Range Rutschblock Cord. This 19-foot, industrial-rated steel cable has small metal 'knots' to aid cutting through rain crust and heavily compacted snow. Two large loops on either end give you and a partner a tight hold on the cord, and once you're done making your cuts, the whole thing packs up inside the included drawcord pouch.
    • 3/64-inch steel cable is rated to a working strength of up to 270 pounds
    • Rutschblock test is one of many available on-slope tests backcountry skiers and avalanche-safety professionals use to assess snow stability and identify potentially weak layers in the snowpack
    • Pouch comes with instruction for performing Rutschblock, compression, stuffblock, and shovel-shear tests
    • Item #BKR0018

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Been using a length of p-cord with knots in it for awhile now, and decided it might be time to invest in one of these. Its super solid and cuts through blocks with ease. It comes in two lengths that can be clipped together if you're cutting cornices. A single length is plenty when you're digging pits and isolating columns. It's worth a mention that the new carrying case has a hook-and-loop closure instead of the drawcord.
