    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.

    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.

      If you don't own one already, buy it now

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      If you plan on climbing at all outside, do yourself a favor and just pick one of these up now! You will use it just as much as your shoes in your climbing career. Girth hitch it on your harness and have it be a staple that is part of your system. You will thank yourself later. The ease of use with multiple loops is very nice for equalizing yourself to your anchor.

      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.

          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
