Petzl Paw S Spring 2009 The new Paw S by Petzl is a rigging plate for the belay and creating a system with multiple anchors. Useful in big wall climbing and for setting up Tyrolean traverses. Specifications: Weight: 55 g Breaking Strength: 36 kN Certification: CE Features: 3 anchor point holes. Helps to equalize loads. Light and robust: made of aluminum.
Works well in haul line and belay line systems. Comparitvely it's light and doesn't add to much when hiking's the only option. Most of the time it stays in the car unless I KNOW I'm going to need it. I've purchase a 45kn steel biner to go along with it for safety. It's rated at 36kn. Nice that it's NFPA certified
