Assisted-braking resistor to increase rope friction when there is a large weight difference between belayer and lead climber. In the event of a fall, the OHM increases the amount of rope friction so that a lighter belayer can hold a heavier lead climber without difficulty.



  •     Belayer requires significantly less hand braking force to arrest a fall
  •     Lowering a heavier climber is much easier to control
  •     OHM is attached at the first bolt in the safety chain
  •     Should a lead climber fall at the first bolt, the OHM significantly reduces the risk of a possible ground fall
  •     Rope handling when belaying a lead climber not affected (no additional friction when paying out rope)
  •     Recommended weight difference (lead climber > belayer): 10 - 40 kg
  •     Minimum weight belayer: 40 kg
  •     For single ropes from 8.9 - 11.0 mm


  •     Approved rope diameter [mm]: 8,9 - 11
  •     CE marking: CE 0123
  •     country of origin: Germany
  •     Weight: 470 g
