Product Name: Be Up Multi-use Belay
Ferno Product Code: VCT 2D657A5S1
Climbing Technology's new Be Up is an innovative multi-use belay and abseil device that is compact, intuitive and easy to use. It is suitable for use with half, twin and single ropes for mountaineering, multi-pitch sport climbing and trad routes.
The Be Up optimises braking with all types of rope through its modular braking system and also allows auto-locking and independent belaying of two persons.
The Be Up offers alot of flexibility in a compact, 85 g climbing device. Functions and benefits include:
Effective belaying of the leader - The particular shape of the Be Up‘s body allows rope to be paid out fluidly, rapidly and without jams
Ability to pay out one rope while the other is locked up when belaying the leader on a multipitch route using two ropes. Be Up is the only such device that lets you do this;
Effective, modular braking of the rope - the device's “V” notches are designed to guarantee better braking control when arresting a fall, abseiling or bringing up seconds
Ability to bring-up one or two persons - with auto-locking and each second being belayed independently of the other (GUIDE MODE). The Be Up‘s special shape and the attachment ring built into the body allow you to bring up one or two persons using twin or half ropes with Ø ≥ 7.3 mm. You can continue to bring-up one person while the other is hanging with their rope locked-off in the Be Up
Ability to easily unlock and lower a free-hanging person with twin or half Ø ≥ 7.3 mm ropes. Be Up is the only such device that lets you do this, simply by inserting a normal HMS carabiner in the unlocking hole
Rapidly switch between modes
Keeping ropes separated during abseiling descents - The “V” notches allow you to effectively control the rate of descent without twisting the ropes
