Edelrid Via Ferrata Belay Kit 15m

The Edelrid Via Ferrata Belay Kit has been designed to increase safety when belaying less experienced climbers, or children, up difficult sections of via ferrata.

It is well known that even with the best shock absorbers, falling off on steep sections of via ferrata can be dangerous. The Via Ferrata Belay Kit allows the 'lead' climber to belay another climber up steep or technical sections using a 15m length of dynamic rope with an in built auto-locking belay device, with as much safety and efficiency as possible. The rope storage sack means that the rope will not hang down the rock and interfere with the second, as well as allowing the leader to feed out rope to themselves (although please note this kit is in no way intended to protect the leader).

The Belay Kit is compatible with all of the Via Ferrata kits we sell - if you are unsure whether it is compatible with your via ferrata kit then please get in touch with us.

Features

  • Belay plate with automatic self-braking
  • 15 m single rope with sewn termination at both ends
  • Rope colour may vary as Edelrid use leftover sections from their rope production

Great piece of kit

Used this today to take my 9 year old on his first via ferrata, this was excellent, it gave my son that extra bit of reassurance and also made it more stress free for me!
The auto lock belay is instant, no lag whatsoever, this makes it real easy to just pull the rope through one handed (whilst obviously holding yourself on) safe in the knowledge if they were to fall the device will jam straight away.
Simply pull up the blue loop and they can then pull some slack without any issues.
Whilst there is obviously an added amount of faff, I would say this is the least amount of faff you could ever have belaying another.
After about 10 mins started to get used to moving the 3 carabiners easily (2 lanyard and then this) and we moved quite efficiently, for the via we were on running about 10m of slack and then belaying up that amount seemed the sweet spot.
Overall this worked really well and I’d definitely recommend it if taking either a child or very nervous person out.
