    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

    Good for single pitch, mah/okay for trad

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

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

    - 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.

    More safe than a daisy

      I already reviewed this piece a while back; however, during a conversation with a canyoneering friend recently, it was discovered that he was using his daisy chain in an unsafe manner and did not even realize it. Many, including my friend, are not aware that taking a fall on a daisy chain, that has been improperly shortened, can tear out leaving you in a freefall.

      If you have not seen Blackdiamond's demonstration video ...take a look:
      Having seen this and shared it with my friend, he has changed his methods ...eliminating the chance (slim or not) of a catastrophe.

      Metolius PAS is awesome because every loop is rated. Perfect piece of gear for canyoneering as well as climbing. Makes setting up awkward raps much safer.

      This PAS is not a POS

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I really like that you have a quick ability to choose whatever length you need for the situation.

      The only thing I don't care for is how expensive it is. Kinda ridiculous.

      This PAS is not a POS

      Best PAS on the market

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This pas is great, very light, and easy to stow away on your harness. I think this chain can hold up a car, or at least I tell myself that. Super great for cleaning routes and building anchors. Great gear to add to the arsenal of equipment you must have.

      Amazing versatility!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Of course you can tether with a sling... but without knotting/doubling it you're limited to one length, and if you do you're losing strength.

      The PAS can be clipped at different lengths and is always full strength - so you can belay off it, make an equalized anchor, and my personal favorite use for trad climbing, multipitch rappels with the perfect rap extender/tether combo!

      Get one, you will never regret having it.

      Don't leave home without it.

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

      If you do not own one of these buy one now. I cannot begin to think how much time I have wasted fiddling with slings at the top of a climb until I tried this out. Besides saving time, this allows the user to focus on the task at hand.

      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
