    Rip-and-clip action.

    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

    Simple and Solid

      When it comes to your PAS, it doesn't get much better than this. You can adjust the length, and easily clip in twice to anchors for redundancy. It's exactly the peace of mind that you need at the top of a multi-pitch so you can sit back and enjoy the view!

      Easy Extension

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is a great PAS for those who chose to use an extended rappel. From bolted anchors the transition from cleaning to rappelling is seamless. This PAS takes a lot of the guess work and possible mistakes that regular daisy chains can cause. For natural anchors this may be a bit unnecessary and you may want to opt out for a sling. This piece really shines in bolted anchor environments when you are close to the anchors. If you are looking for a little length check out the Ultimate Daisy. Remember if you leave these on your harness to regularly check both your hard points on your harness and your slings for their integrity and climb safe out there!

      Easy Extension

      Great for what it is!

        PAS, especially the static kind have a very specific breadth of use and once I figured it out, this thing excels. On muti-pitch routes, I like clipping in direct when I get to the anchor point and then adjusting the length with a second 'biner on another loop. It also makes organizing a rack easy if you use different loops for different pieces.

        Where this really shines compared to other PAS systems (non looped) is when you top out and are setting up your rappel. I have a big beard and I like my rappels well away from my face, I can be clipped to the anchor and set up my rappel and unclip in one go, super clean and quick. Those minutes futzing with a rappel setup really add up.

        Essential gear

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This piece of gear is a life saver and it is always on my harness in any case I need it. The piece going through your harness is a good length for a girth hitch and all the PAS extension pieces. I use a few carabiners and hook them to two of them to the chains. It is actually longer then I thought but such a good anchor system.

        Safe and Simple PAS

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        The contrasting colors and each loop rated to 22kn makes it simple to use and safe. The versatility of this thing makes it my go-to personal anchor system for multi-pitch and long rappels.

        Great PAS

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This is awesome. Using a daisy chain over a typical sling is so easy for adjusting the length you need. It does tend to be a little short for me sometimes though so that could be a pain. I ordered the ultimate daisy to correct that problem. Overall a great daisy chain

        Life Saver

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Don't do do any mulit pitch climbs without this piece of gear. As far as Anchor systems go you can't go wrong. The many loops provide plenty of options for different lengths. would highly recommend

        Good for single pitch, mah/okay for trad

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Pro
        - Since each loop is full rated, I can adjust length without worrying about a loop failure.
        - Convenient

        Con
        - Little expensive (must wait for sale)
        - Little short (personal preference)
        - Bulky and heavy (compared to a single sling)

        Great piece of gear!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This PAS by metolius looks beefy and is beefy, my freind has just bought one from BD And though both are rated to 22kn The Metolius one is clearly built to withstand more abuse. Iv used it mainly to set up top rope anchors but have not felt safer while doing so and forget the sling and other sketch ways of keeping you safe this is the answer a dedicated piece of equipment you won't ever work without once you've got it.

        Buy one already

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This is a must have for your climbing quiver. From belaying off a multi pitch to cleaning a route, this is crucial. It's safer than a daisy chain. It can be adjusted. It's simple and safe. What more can you ask for?!

        Quick, easy, and redundant

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I primarily use this to clean sport anchors. Its adjustability and ease of use make it the quickest, easiest and safest way to anchor in. Remember to clip into two bolts when you use it! Clip one of the middle links to one bolt, and the end one to the other, then you are redundant.

        Solid Piece of Climbing Equipment

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Love this thing! The interlocking loops make for easy and safe adjustment, and its small enough not to clutter up an already full rack of gear. I usually sling it between my legs to the back of my harness to keep my gear loops clean. One note to consider, this is dyneema, which is awesome stuff, but it does not like dynamic falls. These work best when weighted and taught. Even a short fall onto a loose PAS can produce some really high forces. Read up on the difference between nylon and dyneema/spectra and understand their strengths. Also don't take safety advice from some rando on the internet. :)

        A must for your climbing quiver.

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This is the best personal anchor system on the market. Its great for multi pitches or just cleaning a route. It allows for quick adjustment in length. Not to bulky or heavy. A must for any climbers quiver.

        This is an essential piece of gear

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        The Metolius PAS is necessary for any climber who's looking to do any kind of multi pitch climbing. It's design makes it fast and easy to anchor in no matter how high off the ground you are. The simplicity of it is very nice while you are climbing, it's not bulky and doesn't get your way, but allows for a lot of adjustability due to the interlocking ring design. I use this piece of gear every time I go climbing, and I've learned to trust it.

        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.

        Best Answer

        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
