Divided into three unique and robust sections that include PPE inspection and maintenance, RENTALS administration, and a KNOW-HOW educational component that includes a comprehensive library of product knowledge and inspection documents, the EDELRID GEAR PILOT adds increased operational efficiencies and consolidates PPE programmatic needs into one concise and easy to use platform.
If you have the time and patience, why not transform your old rope into a rope mat – for use at home or as a sit mat for camping or the crag. Those happy climbing experiences will all come flooding back every time you use it.
