The Beal Escaper may challenge your sensibilities. The Escaper is clever design that allows a descending party to rig their rappel as a retrievable single line. Not only can you ditch the weight and bulk of the second rope, but in many cases the Escaper will allow you to carry a shorter, and thus, lighter rope because you will have eliminated the need to double your line through the anchor.

How does it work? Just thread the included length of dry-treated rope through the anchor and into a Dyneema "finger cuff", then tie your rappel line into the end-loop on the Escaper. You’ll descend your rappel line while (hopefully) keeping constant tension on the system. When you reach the bottom of your rappel, give a few tugs to tension and release the system and the rope will inch out of the finger-cuff. This allows you to retrieve your rope and the Escaper as one. Happy escaping!

  • Perfect back-up if you miscalculate the size of a rappel.
  • Included protective stuff sack to stay organized.
  • Escaper rope is marked and dry-treated.
  • 100g total system weight.

Question from Marc
 
Is there a minimum diameter rope that the Escaper works with?

Hi Marc, not really. You tie your own rope to the loop at the bottom. The rope that snugs in the finger-lock is part of the Escaper itself.

Question from Eric S
 
Did you guys put this up on April 1st? It seems a bit like the magical Eleven rope from the Lord of the Rings.
For real?

Gandalf brought this and a single rap cord to Moria which is why he was able to escape without a trace. With a traditional setup, Frodo would have noticed the anchor he left behind which would have really thrown the whole story line off. It's for real though. Think of all the fears you'll be able to conquer with how much weight you'll be saving.
