The Petzl Footcord is a lightweight, compact, and easily adjustable foot ascender strap which can be girth-hitched directly to your ascender or used with a carabiner or quick link. The Footcord is a more compact foot loop, as it is primarily cord with a reinforced webbing step. Adjustment of the Footcord is provide through a a tiny plate through which the cord passes. Pull through more or less cord to adjust the overall length of the strap to fit the tree climber. Cutting out bulky buckles and webbing let's this cord easily stuff into a pocket or pouch and brings the weight down to only 45 grams (1.6 oz). Petzl has really done a good job on this on - the minimal design and easy adjustment will make this a favorite for long SRT climbs.

Webbing strap enables correct positioning of the Croll chest ascender. Adjusts rapidly using the double-back buckle. Back strap can be unclipped to remove the harness.
Designed as an aid for climbing in the single rope technique, the chest roller helps by keeping the climber's torso connected to the rope. This enables the climber to recline comfortably without having to exert the stomach and arm muscles to keep the upper body close to the rope.
The chest roller harness is required in order to wear the chest roller. It is made of strong nylon webbing and has lots of padding and surface area to be soft and comfortable around the armpits and against the back.
By special request, we've brought on the adjustable bungee tether that was originally developed by Buckingham for the Mar-Bar system. Although the Mar-Bar system is no longer manufactured, this tether can be put to use as a replacement part for an existing system or for other adjustable tether needs. Adjusts from approximately 21" to a maximum 36" when fully-extended and stretched.
Made of heavy-duty materials, this tether meets ANSI A10.14 and has a maximum weight capacity of 350 lb. Made in the USA.
