The Alpine PAS is a lightweight Personal Anchor System for fast ascents - it is over 40% lighter than the original! It is a safe, adjustable alternative to slings or quick draws that also stores compactly. Chain-link-style construction eliminates the risk of pocket failure that is inherent in daisy chains. It is made from 11 mm Monster Sling Webbing. The Metolius Alpine PAS is for use as a personal tether only.
