The problem: climbing with a partner where there is a significant weight difference. The solution: Edelrid’s Ohm. The Ohm is an assisted-braking resistor that increases friction. It is attached via a quickdraw to the first bolt in the safety chain, with the rope running through it. In the event of a fall, it increases rope friction, making it easier for a lighter belayer to hold a heavier climber, and avoiding the belayer being thrown forcefully against the wall. Edelrid designed the Ohm so that it doesn’t affect rope handling when belaying a lead climber – there is no additional rope drag, or friction when paying out rope.

    • Assisted-braking resistor
    • Belayer requires significantly less hand braking force to arrest a fall
    • Lowering a heavier climber is much easier to control
    • Rope handling not affected – no additional friction when paying out rope
    • Recommended weight difference (lead climber>belayer): 10 – 40kg
    • Minimum belayer weight: 40kg
    • Ropes from 8.9mm – 11mm

    Breaking load: 20kN

    Weight: 470g
