Weight Differences

I bought it for my business when teaching lead climbing where there is an obvious difference in weight between climbers. Belayer remains on the ground.

Solid and reassuring

My sport climbing partner is 25 kg lighter than me and the Ohm makes lower-offs easily manageable. One needs to be carefully drawing the rope through for a clip, as a snatch can cause rope drag at an awkward moment. The Ohm is also pretty heavy, but it goes only on the first bolt and overall is a really good product.

Defiantly would recommend

Regularly climb with my best mate who is half my weight. Makes life much better for us both as don’t need to weigh her down to keep her on the ground (still doesn’t work for a lead fall!) and she can now belay confinatly that she can manage to keep me safe and I can lead safe in the knowledge she can manage. Can also use for top rope work by running the down rope through the device but that’s outside scope of instructions. I have changed the Ali carabiner to a steel lock gate due to the risk of cross loading and carabiner getting eaten by steel wall fixtures.

  • Advantages
    Works
  • Disadvantages
    Heavy

This is a great piece of kit. I use it when I'm climbing and my daughter is belaying, she's a fraction of my weight and we tested the device before using, in a fall she feels the pull but it's all kept safe by the Ohm.
