Most of us know Petzl products not for support of vertical and emergency professionals or their wonderful company philanthropy but for helping us play. The sport contribution of Petzl is immense, from supporting caving to mountain climbing and anything human-powered in between. Ascending or descending, there are special devices for every sort of rope control you can imagine. Headlamps have been designed for a full range of activities. Check out all the anchors for rock and ice:   serious gear here. Viewing the equipment available makes even urban bound flower gardeners and sidewalk exercisers like me want to stretch out and do something new.

Petzl makes a descender for everything.

And remember, all this stuff is made to the highest safety standard with great care given to waste reduction, energy efficiency and care for both the humans producing and distributing these items and for the communities impacted by supported recreational activity. Join us April 23 to tour their Platinum LEED building and hear about their workplace and conservation practices and local and global philanthropy.
