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.

" 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."
