C.A.M.P. Big Wall & Protection Sphinx Small Fixed Pulley 2152. A.M.P.'s Sphinx is a super compact ultralight pulley with fixed side plates. The Sphinx is very easy to handle and convenient to carry on a harness while ski touring or mountaineering. The attachment hole is large enough to allow full rotation of a standard locking carabiner. Self-lubricated brass bushings are perfect for light applications at low speed. Unlike other pulleys with fixed side plates the Sphinx allows for a prusik knot to be intalled on one side (aramid cord suggested) making it an ideal pulley for rigging a haul system on route or managing crevasse rescues.
The fixed side plates make this an excellent pulley for quickly rigging a hauling system using an ascender. Clip a locking oval carabiner into the two pulley holes, then clip the carabiner to top of an ascender. Attach this rig to an anchor point that can rotate (such as a sling) using a locking carabiner clipped to the oval carabiner (between the side plates).Rescue, RiggingBrass bushingAluminum alloy sheavePermanent rivet never loosensRequires locking oval or HMS carabiner, cannot be used with D-shapesSpecs:Working Load: 2.5 kN x 2 = 5 kN, 560 LBF x 2 = 1120 LBFBreaking Load: 10 kN x 2 = 20 kN, 2250 LBF x 2 = 4500 LBFInner sheave Diameter: 21 mm, 0.8 inMax Rope Diameter: 12 mmWeight: 110 g, 3.9 oz
