    Personal Anchor System

    After gaining the chains and pumping out, the last thing you feel like doing is fiddling around with excessive slings, daisies, or quickdraws. The Metolius Personal Anchor System streamlines your anchor-setting process for increased convenience and safety.
    • Dyneema webbing resists water absorption to avoid taking on excess weight
    • Strength rated to 22 kN so you can rest assured knowing the PAS can handle more than a little hanging action
    • Use beyond body weight applications makes the PAS safer than a traditional daisy chain
    • Stows compactly to maintain pack space
    • Carabiner not included
    • Item #MET0362

    Gets the job done

    Familiarity:I've used it several times

    It's a simple PAS, works great, fun colors, it's exactly what it needs to be... and at a reasonable price if you catch it on sale.

    Solid and reliable

    Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    Good pas, see it used more than any other. That said I prefer the dynamic PAS version and it's about the same price via REI. Either one is bomber

    Familiarity:I've used it several times

    Simple and Efficient Gear from Metollius

    Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    This Personal Anchor System is great. Really lightweight, multiple loops make it really to hook in to bolts. A necessity for cleaning anchors.

    Fantastic gear

    Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    Excellent quality from Metolius. I use the PAS on every climb. I find it useful for sport climbing, and even better for multi-pitch trad. For me, it saves time and increases safety by allowing me to quickly anchor to bolts or gear. Also great for easily extending a rappel. The weight is very reasonable at about 3 whole ounces. Might seem a bit expensive at first, but it's totally worth it once you put it to use.

    5 stars for simplicity!

    A great choice for climbers of all abilities. It’s a very simple piece of gear but one I don’t leave the house without!

    Every climber should have one

    Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I love the loops to adjust lengths depending on the anchor. Every climber should have one!

    Great PAS

    Familiarity:I've used it several times

    The piece of equipment works great! Girth hitch this bad boy to your harness and you're good to go for cleaning anchors or hanging out at belay stations. The multiple loops allows for super easy distance adjustment. As with any piece of climbing equipment, inspect this PAS before each use. Will definitely be purchasing one for my wife.

    The PAS 22 is a beast!

    Familiarity:I've used it several times

    So I am pretty new to sport climbing but wanted to start leading some routes and then also cleaning them. I found this item while searching the internet and all its resources for good personal anchor systems. Let me just say that the PAS 22 is great. I have cleaned multiple routes with it and it is supper easy to use. You simply girth hitch it through both tie in loops and then clip it to the anchor of the sport route. I also bought two DMM phantom locking carabiners. And these work great with it. I know with this system you only need one attachment point or so I think but I always like to have backups. The carabiners are really light and the PAS is super strong. I believe it is like 22 kn per loop. So basically they put a bunch of belay loops together and made a really strong versatile system. The ability to use any loop allows for a very easy anchoring and quick cleaning. Overall I think that this is a great system. Honestly I have no problems so far.

    Safety first kids!

    Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I use this all the time when I'm sport climbing. Easy to use with a simple hitch to my harness and a locking biner to the wall. Secure and sturdy and it's standing up great to the abuse that I put my gear through. Everyone who cleans or leads sport routes should have one.

    No Brainer

    Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    Phenomenal piece of gear. I use it to anchor or back up my anchor at the top of sport routes when cleaning. Easy equalization and durable material make me confident it'll be around for many more sends to come.

    Just what I needed

    easy as pie to use and feels real sturdy. didn't flinch at all on my first time anchoring in after leading a route!

    Super Secure but Slightly Bulky

    The PAS 22 offers convenience and security when locking into an anchor. The only downside compared to the alpine PAS is that its bulkier and can get in the way during the ascent, especially with harder sport climbs.

    A must have!

    Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    So easy to use. Also setting up the correct length on it at the chains if they are not even is easy to do. This is a must have for anyone climbing outdoors.

    a must-have

    Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I don't know why it took me so long to pull the trigger on one of these. After years of using slings or 6mm cord as a PAS, I finally purchased this one and I will never go back. I love how easy it is to adjust the length and equalize your anchor when you get to a belay. This is a must-have for any multi-pitch climbs, but it's also really handy for clipping in real quick to clean single pitch sport routes. It's pretty much always on my harness unless I'm at the gym, and I don't feel like it adds too much bulk. I'd rather carry a slightly bigger, more adjustable PAS with me all day than have to fumble with the length of slings or cord every time I set up a belay.

    Dyneema webbing

    Tool used for anchoring yourself at a customizable distance to your anchor. Holds up exceptionally well. Looks brand new despite getting extensive use.

    What is the length of this PAS w/o Carabiner?

    Length w/o biner is 38" (96.5 cm) Jared D. Expert Gearhead 801.736.4336 jdowns@backcountry.com

    What would be the advantage of this pas vs the alpine pas? 12kn seems enough for personal anchor use. That's over 2500lbsf. That's what the Alpine is rated to. This one is more expensive and heavier and stiffer. trying to understand the advantage over the alpine for use as a pas.

    Hey Jessica, So there are a few slight differences between the regular PAS 22 and the Alpine PAS. PAS 22 38" long (96.5 cm) CE/UIAA Certified Weighs 3.3oz Alpine PAS: 36.5" long (93 cm) NOT CE/UIAA Certified - designed just to be used as a tether and not for equalizing an anchor Weighs 1.7oz Shoot me an email if you have any questions at all!
