If your technical rando race calls for navigating a fixed rope line, the CAMP Matrix Comp lanyard set is your default safety option. The Matrix Comp is CAMP's lightest via ferrata lanyard set that uses the Matrix shock absorber, which is a patented 4 point device that is designed to soften the blow of any missteps. Simply clip the Icarus slide-locking carabiners into the rope one at a time as you pass the fixed rope anchors, leaving the other attached to make sure you're protected. Fasten the bottom end of the via ferrata kit to your harness with a biner or simple girth hitch.
Update 2018: CAMP has replaced the Matrix Comp with the Kinetic Rewind.
