A unique and versatile jamming device designed specifically for backing up abseils.

Designed to use in place of traditional jamming knots to prevent loss of control during abseil. What make it especially appealing for multi pitch and aid climbers is the fact it can also be used for ascending, hauling and self belay.

Furthermore the Shunts unique design can be used on single or double ropes and uses a toothless cam which is kinder to your ropes sheath. In addition the toothless design allows temporary slippage of the device before biting, reducing the chance of injury from impact forces.                      


Material: Aluminium frame
Rope Diameter (Minimum): Single 10-11, double 8-11
Weight: 188

TR Solo & Abseil, 13 April 2014
By lee (salford)
Used it for abseiling with a belay to replace a prussik and it works perfectly, nice smooth descent. Also for top rope solos and again its great, weighted the rope and it travels up with no fuss, catches a fall straight away, cant wait to use it again.

Good bit of kit, 03 September 2011
By Carl (Staffordshire)
the shunt has found its way onto my rack after borrowing a friends to back up a repel. The device is very versitile, allowing use as a backup and as an asending divice, much like a prussuc loop. The key difference is that the device slides better then a loop and jams more dependantly then a loop of rope will. Another advantage is that you can use it with two ropes.
Unlike the triblock or some other asendingdevices. the shunt has no teath, meaning it wont dammage rope sheaths, and allows for a more dynamic fall, should it be used for solo climbing or rapid lock offs!
