Petzl Scorpio Vertigo Via Ferrata Lanyard
Product Code L060AA00




Retractable via ferrata lanyard with tearing energy absorber and Petzl Vertigo WL karabiners

The Petzl Scorpio Vertigo lanyard for via ferrata is equipped with two Petzl Vertigo Wire-Lock karabiners. It has two arms that are retractable to avoid interferring with movement, and a tearing energy absorber located in a zippered pouch, enabling the condition of the absorber to be easily checked. The lanyard also has a third arm to facilitate traverses or to allow attachment to a bar (in order to rest, for example).

  • Facilitated progression for optimal protection:
    • two retractable arms facilitate access to Petzl Vertigo Wire-Lock karabiners and do not interfere with progression
    • one short arm for attachment to bars, for Tyrolean traverses or for progression close to the cable (must be used with a K-type locking carabiner, not included)
    • twisted attachment sling facilitates connection to the harness with a girth hitch
  • Manipulations while passing intermediate anchors are facilitated by Petzl Vetigo Wire-Lock karabiners:
    • excellent grip
    • Wire-Lock automatic locking system is easy to use
    • wide opening for easy connection of carabiner to cable
    • Keylock system helps prevent snagging of the karabiner during maneuvers
    • especially suitable for intensive use
  • Better equipment inspection:
    • protective pouch with zippered closure for the tearing energy absorber enables its condition to be easily checked.
    • usage tips for the via ferrata lanyard displayed on the energy absorber pouch

  • Length of lanyard (without carabiners):
    • total: 85 cm
    • lanyard arms: 60 cm extended (36 cm retracted)
    • short arm: 7 cm
    • after complete tearing: 210 cm

Mark, Business Development

" I changed to this type of lanyard for a trip to the French Alps last year. Very impressed - the wire-lock karabiners are simple to use and by adding an extra karabiner I was able to take rests whilst waiting for other to negotiate tricky sections."
