  • PETZL Pirana Descender

    The Petzl Pirana Descender has three braking positions designed for use with canyoneering descent techniques.

    Features/Benefits:

    • Choose from three braking positions depending on the user weight, the rope diameter, and terrain
    • Two supplementary braking spurs allow friction to be increased during descent
    • Carabiner with cross section of 12 mm (like an ATTACHE) provides a tight fit in the small hole, creating a rigid carabiner/descender unit
    • Stays securely attached to the harness during rope insertion to help prevent loss
    • Greatly reduces the risk of leverage on the carabiner gate (poor positioning)
    • Designed to be used with the "rapid" technique
    • Designed for use on single ropes 8 to 13 mm
    • Can be used on some double ropes (braking positions depend on diameter)
    • Use with a locking carabiner with a 12 mm cross section (ATTACHE or WILLIAM)

        Comments about PETZL Pirana Descender:

        Small but fast, you can't go wrong with this. I use mine any chance I get and its amazing. Even double rope rappeling with this is fun as long as you have the weight for it.

        Verified Reviewer

        Pros

        • Multiple applications

        Cons

        • Requires certain "biners"

        Best Uses

        • Descending tying off
        • Outdoor climbing

        Comments about PETZL Pirana Descender:

        Great descender from Petzl. Lot's of options for stopping or tying off on the way down or belaying. Make sure, if you purchase, that you also have a smaller diameter carabiner to attach to it ( such as a PETZL Attache Carabiner). The hole and rubber buffer is small and just won't accept any carabiner for use.
