Not Just For Climbing

I've put it through the wringer

Use this pulley on my drift boat anchor system to help with drag and make it smooth and easy to bring up the anchor.

Solid Pulley

I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I gave this to a friend who does big wall climbing all over, and he uses it all of the time. It's a solid construction and can handle some serious work load. My friend uses it with confidence all of the time.

This is the Petzl Partner, not the Mini.

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

This pulley has a nice smooth bearing. For use in crevice rescue for me. Light weight and a good quality. Doesn't take up much space on your rack.

the best!

im really am blown away by this pulley (well as a human can get about a pulley). down to business anyway, I've been a little rough on this pulley just to be honest, its been to utah scratched up and down sandstone and had sand blown around on it and all of my other gear and while i could hardly get the screwgate on a carabiner closed from the sand clogging it up the mini was still running smooth as a dream. and throwing a progress capture on it is a dream thanks to the straight bottoms of the side plates, just a prusik out of a little dynex runner keeps you from ever dropping a load again, i think theres illustrations on petzl's website of how to set up a progress capture and if not there is in the book that comes with the pulley in the box, very very very pleased (and plan to get the gemini, its like the mini but with two pulley wheels in it) to make more complex systems with both the pulleys


So what would be a better buy for basic ascending, this pulley (Prusik)or the other petzl pulley (partner). Not so much worried about the price, as I am about the functionality. Thank

They are really similar pulleys. The Partner has a different lighter aluminum casing that wouldnt "Mind" the prussik well. I think the Partner pulley is perfect and gets the job done, unless you wanted to have a prussik built into the locking system and at that point I would go with the Micro Traxion. Much more reliable locking function.


How do some pulleys handle prusiks better...

How do some pulleys handle prusiks better than others? I've just started reading the books and watching the videos on zsystems etc but haven't put any of it to practice... so I may be missing something obvious.

Pulley doen'ts make the Prusik. It is just part of the Z system. How easy the pulley is to get into the z system is important.

Sorry, I should've been more specific- When this says "Prusik Minding" I assume this particular pulley somehow works better with Prusiks than other pulleys. Is that the case? I can't figure out why one pulley would work better than other, at least with regards to prusiks. Does that help clarify my question? (thanks for the response!)

Basically, the flat bottom edge of pmp's work better at "tending" the prusik (keeping it from getting sucked into the pulley itself and jamming) than a regular, more rounded bottom pulley. Otherwise, pmp's work exactly the same as other pulleys, with the same ease of use, efficiency, etc. An ATC can also be used in conjunction with a regular pulley for a self-minding prusik/pulley setup. Hope this helps.

Some PMP's are better than others, some have a tendency to "eat" the prusik depending the size of rope and size of prusik cordage...when the prusik gets pitched it can totally mess up the system.
