This PAS is not a POS

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I really like that you have a quick ability to choose whatever length you need for the situation.
The only thing I don't care for is how expensive it is. Kinda ridiculous.

Best PAS on the market

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This pas is great, very light, and easy to stow away on your harness. I think this chain can hold up a car, or at least I tell myself that. Super great for cleaning routes and building anchors. Great gear to add to the arsenal of equipment you must have.

Amazing versatility!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Of course you can tether with a sling... but without knotting/doubling it you're limited to one length, and if you do you're losing strength.

The PAS can be clipped at different lengths and is always full strength - so you can belay off it, make an equalized anchor, and my personal favorite use for trad climbing, multipitch rappels with the perfect rap extender/tether combo!

Get one, you will never regret having it.

Don't leave home without it.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

If you do not own one of these buy one now. I cannot begin to think how much time I have wasted fiddling with slings at the top of a climb until I tried this out. Besides saving time, this allows the user to focus on the task at hand.

Safety First

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This personal anchor system is always attached to my harness! This PAS is much safer then a daisy chain! Having so many loops makes adjusting your distance to the anchor so easy! Made in the US!

Essential Daisy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I always keep this on my harness at all times. If you do any multi pitch climbing this daisy pays off huge. Super easy and quick to equalize anchors and simplify the belay. I'm on my 3rd one now. I like to replace it after heavy use for the peace of mind but most likely don't need to since it's so bomber.

Very handy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Having 22kN loops all in a row is perfect for adjusting your distance to the anchor so you can belay, play with the rope, etc. Easier than set length runners that you'd have to fiddle with to get the lengths right.

Simple and safe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The PAS is a well-designed and incredibly safe piece of gear. Just girth hitch it to your belay loop and you're good to go. I particularly like having it when I'm second, finished cleaning a route, get up to the belay station, and just look for the colored end loop. That was a great touch.

A little bulky and frivolous (but still nice to have) for backcountry or alpine climbs where you're counting grams. However, for days at your local crag or short approach climbs this thing is indispensable.

Simple and awesome.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use this for tying into anchors when cleaning and setting up sport routes.

The Metolius PAS is simple, easy to use and adjust, safe with each loop being rated, well marked with the end loop brightly colored.

I recommend this to all for it's safety and convenience.

Simple and awesome.

Safe and great

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I had always used the older style daisy chains and honestly thought that they were safer than the PAS, until I did a bit of research. The PAS is fully rated at 22kN on every single loop whereas the older style daisy chains are not. I started thinking of all the times I had clipped in on my old daisy chain in ways that I now realize were stupidly unsafe. So I bought the PAS and have never had to question my safety again. Loop it straight into your belay loop and use it to clip into your anchors at the top of a climb or at a belay station. Its a great pice of gear.

Better than a daisy chain!

This is a great tool that allows you to clip in at the end of a route, and feel safe doing it. I was always skeptical about using daisy chaines, because they are only rated for your body weight and not a fall. This PAS solves that problem. I would say the selling feature for this PAS is that each loop is rated for a 22 kN fall and you can easily adjust your distance from the rock. I will be buying another one of these!

I love this thing

Way safer than traditional daisy chains, tucks easily out of the way, and gets used all the time. I love this thing. 5 stars.

Safety First

I use the PAS as a backup to the rope when tying into anchors, works great, easy to adjust,easily loops around the waist for storage. I appreciate the brightly colored last loop for easy finding. Avoids the clipping issues with daisy chains seen in the video seen here: http://vimeo.com/14679471#at=0

Thanks for the video link, that was very enlightening. I just picked this PAS up and I am excited to start using it.

Super Safe PAS

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Metolious PAS is awesome. I feel super safe when ever I use it. It conveniently loops around your belay loop and is much stronger than a daisy chain. It has multiple loops and you ca adjust the length to clip in to, or even double clip in to the bolts.SuperTopoVideo has a good review of it so you can see how it works http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AsiArSZzOJ4

Super Safe PAS
Responded on

I think the intended use is for your to pass the harness side through your rope tie in points on the waist-belt loop and leg loops and girth hitch from there. Source - Metolious instructions: http://www.metoliusclimbing.com/pdf/PAS-AnchorChain-UtimateDaisy-web.pdf

PAS+SAP-->Palindrome?

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Dont get tree SAP on Your PAS, trust me. This thing is great, Its easily adjustable. you can hook it to your belay loop with a locker or loop it through upper and lower harness, which you should do right? So much of climbing is evidence based ya know. But having the locker on both ends gives you even more adjustment options. Conrad Anker came to me as a vision and showed me this trick. Oh you can also use it as a rap sling, any loop you like.

A great anchor system!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this anchor system. It's stronger (and safer) than the traditional daisy chain, and each chain is rated to 22 KN. It's plenty long for typical routes with bolted anchors and has a different color on the end loop, so it's easy to find the end and clip it in without much hassle. You can rest assured because they make their stuff in the US! I will definitely buy this again! :)
