Mammut RescYou self rescue belay enables quick simple crevasse rescue either by companions or self rescue, great bit of kit a must for all glacier work and ski touring.
The RescYou is an innovative rescue device in the event of a fall into a crevasse. It can be used to rescue yourself or other climbers. After braking a fall into a crevasse, the device is attached to the climbing harness (self-rescue) or a fixing point (rescue of another person). After this, the two rope clamps are clipped to the rope and the compact six-fold pulley, which connects to the two rope clamps, is operated. This allows the person who has fallen into the crevasse to be rescued as quickly and easily as possible. The RescYou eliminates the need for complicated installations and manoeuvres in the event of a crevasse rescue, making this ground breaking device an essential piece of equipment on any glacier expedition.
Weight 400g Carabiner included in the kit.
We would recommend practise with this item a few times, to get used to it, its pretty simple but would not like to try it in an emergancey situation without having done a few trial runs. Also make sure you get the correct mounting position on your harness, so its ready for use in the event of a self rescue.
Ideal for Classical Alpinism, Ski touring / Back country Skiing, Expeditions, Rescue / Guide / Work Suitable for Mixed- and Iceclimbing
