    eeh. Thats pretty sketchy. Petzl had the idea right when they made their quicklock buckles impossible to unlock. At least there have been no accidents (i hope).

  • Tom

    Max, that’s very true. I’ve been using a Petzl Corax for a few years now and I’ve often wondered why the “always double-backed” buckle system didn’t simply become a standard for all the manufacturers. It’s just one less thing for me to think about before starting up a climb. Habit still has me checking the buckle, but the fact that I can’t screw it up regardless of how tired I am is a huge selling point for me.

    Phew looks like i found this just in time i had one of these harnesses bought for me as a birthday present as i am going climbing next month. I havent done many outdoor activities and i am still a rookie climber it could be a shame to have an accident on my first real outdoor climb. Thanks for that post.

  • Brian
