Beal Escaper



The Beal Escaper establishes itself as a new tool when the mountain reminds you to stay humble, and you and your partner are put into a puzzling situation that can turn the whole mission into an epic. Ropes get stuck or damaged, anchors can be difficult to find, rappelling the route safely and efficiently becomes paramount. Certified as an anchor point by European CE safety standards, the Escaper is a detachable anchor system that sets up full-length, single rope rappels without leaving a single carabiner. It's so light and compact it can easily be stored in a summit pack and set up when on a multipitch climb or when a rappel is required to access a descent while ski mountaineering. The innovative finger trap design loops into and through itself to anchor your rope while you make a smooth rappel. Once you're ready to retrieve your rope, repeatedly tug and let go of your line and it will release the system and send your rope tumbling back down to you.

Surprising, but GREAT!

I've used it several times

I was skeptical and uneasy using the escaper the first couple times, but as others have said, it holds well and works just as it was intended to. I now carry it with me on every route, whether I need it or not. It is light enough that I don't mind carrying it, even when I don't plan on needing to use it.

I've used it several times

This was scary to use on the first rappel but now after alot of use I find it a great tool. It is perfect if you are climbing routes longer than 30 or 40 meters and you dont want to bring a tagline to rappel. I also like to carry it on routes where you walk off the top but unforeseen circumstances could have you needing to bail. It is super light and easy to use however sometimes I find it takes a lot of tugs to receive it creating the illusion your rope may be stuck, try to change the angle and keep pulling it will come. This is an amazing idea and I bet it will keep getting better as the years go on.

Always in the assault pack

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

My son and I used it on a 180 ft rap into the amphitheater in Linville Gorge NC. Worked perfectly! It did take both of use pulled down on the rope wiith our combined body weight 20+ times to get it to release. You have to over come all of the rope stretch and let it go so it snaps back and slowly loosens. Definitely something to take into account

Trust it. Just Trust it.

I've used it several times

The first time you use the escaper, you might be uneasy. After a few times, however, you'll wish you had it years ago. Whether you're ski mountaineering and just need to make a half-dozen rappels to the perfect powder or saving weight on big alpine routes. You're going to love this as much as I have. This is my go-to for fast and light days in the mountains. For bailing on multipitch routes, and making quick work of pulling the rope.

Awesome quality! Exactly what I was looking for


What is the weight of ONLY the product?


Will this still work when wet?
