Entering and Ascending the tree | Doubled rope ascent with Petzl Pantin

Written By: Lance Piatt


Ascending a tree vertically using the Petzl Pantin in a doubled rope ascent. Used with a CROLL, ASCENSION or BASIC ascender, the PANTIN foot ascender keeps the body vertical and makes rope ascent more efficient and less tiring. The compact shape and durability of its attachment strap allows it to remain constantly attached to the foot. The PANTIN is available in both LEFT and RIGHT footed versions. Designed to make rope ascents more efficient and less tiring Cam facilitates passage of the rope through the device, even on the first few meters Toothed cam with self-cleaning slot optimizes performance under any conditions (e.g. frozen or dirty ropes) Stainless steel cam has better resistance to corrosion Mechanism is totally integrated into the body of the ascender to help prevent snagging Releases from the rope with a simple backwards movement of the foot• Foot strap of 100 % Dyneema for abrasion resistance Easy adjustment with DoubleBack buckle Comes in two versions: PANTIN, right foot (yellow ascender) – PANTIN, left foot (black ascender). PETZL SEQUOIA Seat harness for arborists using traditional footlock ascent techniques Extra-wide, semi-rigid waistbelt offers exceptional support and ventilation Waistbelt and suspension seat lined with breathable perforated foam for maximum comfort when suspended Easy to don with FAST buckles on the waistbelt and leg loops Attachment bridge provides lateral mobility Attachment bridge is attached to the waistbelt and to the leg loops by two gated rings in order to: – distribute the pressure evenly between the waistbelt and leg loops (three positions) – adapt the length of the attachment bridge – attach the RING S or the SWIVEL directly to the attachment bridge The two lateral attachment points transfer the weight evenly around the waistbelt for comfort when leaning back in the belt (when feet are supported) Five equipment loops with protective sheaths Two rings for attaching a hand saw Slots for CARITOOL tool holder The Ultimate Positioning Lanyard is made with our TriTech™ rope and is available in both 10ft and 12ft lengths. TriTech™ may provide additional resistance to incidental nicks and offers the most abrasion resistance with nonconductive properties. Our lanyard comes with a sewn eye termination on one end and an ISC steel or aluminum snaphook sewn on the other. The Ultimate Positioning Lanyard is designed for maximum adjustability
