All the hardware you need to set up a haul system in one clean package. The Petzl Crevasse Rescue Kit (aka KIT SECOURS CREVASSE, naturally) is a compact self-contained collection of hauling hardware (no rope as in the RAD system). Using the rope you are hopefully already carrying, and the hardware in the kit, you can rest easy knowing that you are ready to tackle just about any problem that arises. This includes self-induced problems like dropping your candy bar down a crevasse; just go down and fetch it. The versatility of the system affords the flexibility to accept rope from 8-11mm thick. Not designed to be a replacement for proper preventative safety measures, the Crevasse Rescue Kit is just about as close as it gets to being a fool-proof way to lift you or a ski partner out of a hole in the ice.

  • One ST’ANNEAU Dyneema webbing sling that weighs a mere 40g and measures 120cm.
  • One MICRO TRAXION pulley, a highly efficient pulley/ascender hybrid weighing only 85g that’s designed to increase directional rope security or function as a regular pulley.
  • Two OK SCREW-LOCK oval carabiners that weight 74g each. The OK uses a manual screw locking system and is built with a symmetric design to ensure redundant handling in a dire situation.
  • One TIBLOC. At only 39g, the Tibloc is one of the lightest ways to ascend a rope and is built out of corrosion resistant stainless steel. Self-cleaning directional teeth ensure a properly functioning piece of gear no matter the condition.
  • 1 PARTNER pulley. A lightweight aluminum pulley with sealed bearings for maximum efficiency weighing 56g.
  • Rope and deceiving snow-bridge not included.

Speedy but everything you need to protect you from what some may consider a terrible way go. The micro traxion is a marvel. Under stress you want your glacier kit to be simple and efficient, doesn’t get much simpler than that. Also it works with the rad line.

Question from Justin B
Is this crevasse rescue kit the same components that come with the RAD system and if so why does it say 8-11mm ropes but the RAD line is 6mm?
Answer from Will M
Hey Justin,

Great question! The Micro Traxion works with ropes 8mm-11mm and the 6mm RAD Line because it has a HMPE-reinforced sheath.

The RAD System is comprised of a Micro Traxion, Tibloc, 120cm sling, 3x Attache carabiners, 30m of Rad line, and the carrying case.

The Crevasse Rescue Kit is comprised of a Micro Traxion, Tibloc, 120cm sling, 2x Oval locking carabiners, and one Partner Pulley.
Answer from Aaron L
I want to add to this, the MicroTraxion and Tibloc are generally rated for 8mm to 11mm ropes. However Petzl specifically tested them on the rad line. I believe the breaking strength of the rad line while using a Tibloc or Traxion device is 4kN (~1000lbs), rather than the ~14kN breaking strength of the Rad Line itself.

Similarly, Mammut tested their 6mm glacier cord for conformity (4kN) with the Tibloc and Traxion devices, As did Edelrid with their Rap Line.

These are not devices that you should fall on. Rather they should be installed on the rope after a fall, or attached to the rope in such a way that they do not get loaded during a fall.
