Available this month, the Petzl ZigZag mechanical prusik
allows the climber to move around efficiently using the classic prusik/pulley system technique.
When climbing with the ZigZag at the Petzl workshop at TCIA in Baltimore, I was amazed at how smooth and easy it was. This will change double rope climbing.
The ZigZag combines the benefits of a pulley, swivel and friction bars to create an awesome climbing tool. The linked friction bars and pulley provide a smooth, secure ascent and descent system.
When ascending, the climbing line slides easily through the ZigZag, with little slack tending required. Limb walking and descent is simple by pressing on the release lever, varying pressure to control descent. When released the ZigZag grabs the line securely with almost no sit back.
