Climbing Technology Otto Curved Figure 8 Descender

Bryce’s take: 

Can be used in two modes. The curved shape makes locking off easier and with the V shape the rope is less likely to roll off.


Hot-forged light alloy 8-shaped belay / rappel device.

  • For use with single rope, half ropes and twin ropes.
  • The squared shape reduces rope twisting and the curved profile allows two different descent speeds.
