Designed specifically for rock climbing and mountaineering, but capable of other uses, such as glacial ascending, the Petzl Corax climbing harness can be used for nearly any climbing purpose imaginable.
Designed to distribute pressure evenly across the harness, this model specializes in keeping one comfortable during ascending or descending.
Lined with mesh that is breathable yet warm, the waistbelt and leg loops keep a user comfortable in the cold or high heat.
In order to center the harness, 2 DoubleBack buckles are fitted onto the waistbelt. This technology provides the user with the ability to adjust the harness, particularly the center while at the same time, maintaining the ideal configuration.
What makes the Petzl Corax ideal for alternative climbing ventures, is the fact that these DoubleBack buckles can be undone. This allows leg loops to be moved out of the way, so fast exit is possible even while wearing plastic boots or skis.
Finally, there are two rigid gear loops in the front and the back designed for racking gear. Additionally, this won’t interfere with wearing a backpack.
The Petzl Corax climbing harness comes in two sizes.
It can be fitted with an ice screw holder and also identifies the exact spot for a climber’s belay device.
