Details

Adjusters evolved.

Make aid climb through overhanging sections a little easier with Petzl's Evolv Adjust keeping you closer or farther from the wall. This positioning device uses two adjustable arms that connect to your aid equipment, pull you closer to the higher piece, lower you to the bottom piece, or adjust for the ideal length. Each connector has a retainer that specifically fits Petzl's Spirit Screw-Lock carabiner, and these retainers keep the rope out of the way for easier clipping.

This device is designed for use below the anchor points and should only be used when the potential fall factor is less than one. 

  • Positioning device with adjustable arms

Just Practicing

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got these for a future trip to Yosemite but in the meantime I have been climbing a rope I hung in a tree. I have done a little jumaring with a daisy and also a PAS chain. Obviously the PAS is not ideal, cause it is not very adjustable. The evolv adjust is one step further then the daisy, you can really dial in exactly where you want to be in direct to the jumar. Whereas the daisy your choices are every 2-3 inches. i love that easy these are to adjust on the fly, so smooth. You also don't have the worry of being clipped in wrong like you do with the daisy. This should become the new standard.

Excellent Adjustable Daisy Solution

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

So far, I'm really happy with my Evolv Adjust. It feeds smoothly, cinches up securely, and doesn't become a total cluster when twisted. I like that they're far stronger(safer) for clipping into an anchor or attaching to ascenders than a strap-style adjustable daisy. I also feel safer knowing that if I do wind up taking a daisy fall, the ropes being dynamic ought to soften things up at least a little bit.

I use it with Attache 3D SL biners and they seem to work well so far.

Pretty fast

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Used this on about 10 pitches of aid so far and really like it. Adjusts easily and tethers don't 'slip' at all while weighted. Construction is excellent as we would expect from Petzl with great care to detail and all that.

Regarding the performance of this product on aid I found it to be a much better adjustable daisy than the Yates & Metolious that I have used. I prefer this because the Evolve releases/lengthens in a smooth and predictable motion without binding at all. It's also comforting to know that you're hanging off something that is rated beyond body weight. It takes a little getting used to, but once you are this is a fast and reliable system.

One thing that you need to pay attention to is that if there's a cluster&%?$ around the orange aluminum bit you need to pay attention that another weighted biner/pro doesn't keep the tether cammed open. That being said you really should be paying attention to what you're doing while aid climbing so I don't consider this a failing of the device.

For the last climb I did, used a small locker to connect the Evolve to my aiders and used a different (big) carabiner to clip pieces with. Using the same biner for both aider and the Evolve caused the aider webbing to interfere with the rope sliding smoothly and the aluminum unit camming open smoothly when you want to lengthen the tether.

Play with it, but if you're having trouble with the aider interfering with this daisy try using separate biners and problem solved.

Highly recommended!
