Reduce tangle and increase protection options with the Metolius Rabbit Runner Spectra Sling.

The Metolius Rabbit Runner Spectra Sling includes sewn end loops that allow it to be used as an over-the-shoulder sling or a double-length sling on rock and ice climbs. Not only does this versatile runner provide plenty of protection options, it also reduces clutter compared to standard double slings. When worn over the shoulder, the Metolius Rabbit Runner can be un-clipped and freed from the tangle of gear without having to pull it over your head.

in tahoe

great for setting up a really-easy-to-equalize belay. very cost effective for a versatile piece. girth hitch to belay loop and use the sewn ends on a spring locker for a chicken sling that won't elongate on your harness before you need it. can be double or tripled to appropriate size. shorter on the harness (than a 44" spectra sling) when tripled on a biner and overhand knotted, so again less likely to get hung up. plus fat and bright so it helps to reduce confusion if your smoked and snow stunned. I carry three on my rock and three on my alpine harness. no real advantage for glacier scenarions that I've observed, but in writing that some clever s.o.b. better chime in and school me!

Useful

This is a very useful runner. I find I use it most frequently to quickly tie in when I'm setting up an anchor - sort of like a PAS, I guess, but with only two length options. It obviously works perfectly as a 22 or 44 inch runner when making anchors as well.

Super versatile Runner

Alpine runners

These Rabbit Runners are the way to go for alpine and trad climbing. If there's a chance you'll need long runners or to sling natural pro, these Spectra bunnies are lightweight, durable, and are the most versatile option. If you sling runners over your shoulder, they won't get all tangled together because you can remove one by unclipping the biner holding them together - instead of pulling it over your head.

Responded on

Any 4ft runner can be pulled off your shoulder, even under a bunch of other gear, if you know how to rack it correctly. It's actually quite simple.

Responded on

While its true that any double length runner can be racked that way, the point really is that these are double length with only the same amount of material as a normal shoulder length runner (which would need to be pulled over your head if you had them racked over a shoulder). That, and these are just cool

Responded on

You have to store your runners somewhere .. pretty easy to loop over a shoulder. Sometimes the loops get tangled.. The other option is to tie a knot in the webbing and hang off your harness. You need to experimenet to determine what works for you.
