Rock Exotica Silent Partner
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Despite the complex issues and increased risk associated with solo climbing, it does offer many rewards. The Silent Partner is a speed-activated braking device that attaches to a climbing rope with a clove hitch, and to your harness via two locking carabiners. Because the device is sensitive to rope speed, the Silent Partner will lock up to stop a fall regardless of body position. It will also function as a lowering device by simply passing the rope around your hip to provide friction. Although roped solo climbing is not for everyone, for those who take the time to learn how, and accept the inherent risks, it does offer many advantages.
