Homemade HAAS

Recommended Posts

I just use a Lyon tape sling around my shoulders and clip the middle hole of my hc to it and clip the hhaas to that.


Just did another one tonight. Bought some 6mm liros and spliced an thimble into it tonight.

Yeah the first picture I posted with the 9mm tenex was just put together for the pic. Never climbed on the accessory biner. I changed it out the next day.

...although the haas is just another type of rope walker system that has been around a very long time.


You guys are making some great looking knee ascenders but I wouldn't call them HAAS. Though knee ascenders have been around for a long time what Michael made is different in the fact that the bungee is hidden inside the tether and starts at the top of your foot. This combined with the stiffening tube inside the tether rope makes for a highly efficient and unique knee ascender and as far as I know, is the first of its kind.
