    Just in case.

    Kongo's Duck is a micro-sized ascender developed for emergencies on mountaineering missions. If the topo doesn't recommend an ascender, or you're planning to free the entire climb, then the Duck will be a better option than larger ascenders just in case you have to set up rope rescues or skip a couple difficult pitches. 
    • Micro-sized ascender developed for mountaineering emergencies
    • Diameter suitable for 8 -13mm ropes
    • Large hole lets large locking carabiners rotate
    • Item #KON0009

    Unanswered Question

    What is the strength rating of this? Is it just the strength of the carabiner attached to it as the rope essentially runs through the carabiner? I’ve heard that this device has potential slippage at 400kg? Does that mean if in a simulclimbing application, or TR solo application where the device is fallen on with a very small amount of slack out, that if more than 400 kg of force is applied it will slip? Please clarify. Thanks.
