Instead of fussing with cordelettes, knots, or multiple slings, simply break out the Trango UltraTape 6ft Alpine Equalizer for hassle-free anchor building. The six feet self-adjusting sling allows you to instantly equalize two or three pieces of protection.
Description of Trango Ultratape Alpine Equalizer 6Trangos new Alpine Equalizer is the perfect solution for quickly equalizing up to three placements. Based on the RD work done by Jim Cormier at Cormier Mountaineering, Trango has updated it, lightened it and adapted it to work great in any setting. Use it on ice or in the alpine for a speedy anchor, carry it on multi-pitch bolt routes for a quick anchor at the belays or use it as a super long runner. While ideally suited as a self-adjusting anchor system, it can be made non-extending by tying an overhand knot in the center loop shown or by clove-hitching at each protection point. Available in 2 lengths the 6 version is ideal for most 3-anchor set-ups while the 3 foot one saves weight and bulk and can be extended with runners or draws.

On Sale. Trango Alpine Equalizer FEATURES of the Alpine Equalizer by Trango Made with a 12 mm Ultratape Great solution for quickly equalizing your anchor Ideally suited as a self-adjusting anchor system, it can be made non-extending by tying an overhand knot in the center loop or by clove-hitching at each protection point Offers a strength of 22kN Weighs in at only 2.7 oz NOTICE from Trango: All Alpine Equalizer owners and users must review the updated User Guide . In order to eliminate the possibility of the AE lengthening or extending if an Anchor Point fails, you must tie a clove hitch or knot in each loop and attach each loop to a separate Anchor Point. The previous User Guide stated that tying an overhand knot in the center loop eliminated that possibility. However, in actuality, there must be a knot in each loop, as described in the updated User Guide , to prevent extension.
The new Alpine Equalizer is the perfect solution for quickly equalizing up to three placements. Carry it in your pocket, or clip it into your harness, then whip it out when you want a slick, totally-equalized anchor. While ideally suited for a self-adjusting anchor system, it can be made non-extending by clove-hitching at each protection point.
