Another ascender/descender to compete with the Unicender

Richard Tregoweth - Tuesday, September 28, 2010

Have a look at the OAR ascender/descender designed and built by Gordon Svedberg. The prototype OAR doesn't have the finesse of the Unicender but you can see the potential.

Moss TreeClimber tested the OAR on a doubled rope set-up but it would be interesting to see how the device performs on single rope.

Most climbers using the Unicender (in New Zealand) opt for SRT but it can be used in a similar way to the OAR.

Thanks to Drew Bristow for this lead
