Using a pulley system for rescue or haul

Using a pulley system for rescue or haul

Using a pulley system for rescue or hauling using a Petzl Micro Traxion and Tibloc with the pulley.


Perfect for what it is designed for...

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

This is a simple pulley either for hauling or emergency rescue. It is not the best for very heavy loads, but if your climbing Rainier this is what you should be bringing. You don't need something heavier, or heavier duty.

It's lightweight, nearly idiot proof, very efficient, and strong enough for crevasse rescue. Nothing more, nothing less.


Crevasse rescue essential

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

So, most crevasse rescue pulleys just plain suck. True they are light weight but they are also not efficient. If I have to haul someone out of a crevasse I would much rather carry a few extra grams and be able to haul without loosing all my work to inefficient pulleys while my partner is stuck in a crevasse!

Enter the partner pulley, sealed bearing and super efficient. And its barely heavier than the crappy "crevasse rescue pulleys" that have plastic sheeves and bushings not bearings.

If you have this, a Tibloc, and the micro traxion. you have a super fast and efficient crevasses rescue system and still really light.


Great pulley for backcountry fun

    The size and weight is surpizingly compact and does not take up space and weight in my snowboard pack.

    Does this pulley mind prusiks? It looks...

    Does this pulley mind prusiks? It looks as if it would, just want to make sure.

    No it is not designed for that, the Petzl Mini is their lightest prusik-minding pulley. But at 80g for the Mini, at that point you might just want to get the 85g Microtraction, a progress-capture pulley that's just as efficient, and you have one less prusik to mess around with.
