The Metolius Personal Anchor System PAS, is a must have for anyone who climbs multi-pitch routes, big walls, or guides for a living. The PAS is constructed with a super strong, proprietary Power Webbing that attaches to your harness and when you get to your belay station or anchor, you use it to clip in and secure yourself. Daisy chains should NOT be used because they are full-strength only when loaded in the end loops intermediate pockets are only 300 lbf/1.3 kN. With the PAS, you can clip into any part of the system and you will get full back up as each loop has 100 strength to any sort of pull, fall or tension. The PAS is more convenient and adjustable than using slings, or quickdraws at the anchor when rapelling, or belaying.

PAS use 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: dr_monkey, 2007-01-27

In addition to the uses mentioned above the PAS is great for multiple rappels. I put the biner for the device in the very small hole at the end of the first section to make room for a backup off of the leg loop, and a locking D on the end loop for a quick clip-in at each station. Fast and bomber.

Not the Best 2 out of 5 stars

I personally didnt like mine and wound up giving it away. I now use the Metolious Easy Daisy - it adjusts exactly where i want it without trying to figure out which loop you need to clip. And its $5 cheaper than the PAS according to the metolious website

PAS 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: wesleydouglas, 2007-01-21

These things cost almost $100 in Australia but they're certainly worth it. On multi-pitch trad they cut down significantly on changeovers as well as being reassuringly bombproof compared with a traditional daisy chain.
They're also very handy on sport climbs when you have to thread the rings at the top to lower off.

PAS is NOT a POS. 5 out of 5 stars

I love my PAS. I gave my daisy away once I got the PAS. Simple, smart, strong. Get one if you plan to climb outside ever, sport or trad.

PAS not POS 5 out of 5 stars

In a pinch you can use it for anything you would use a runner for, including anchors (only in a pinch!), unlike daisy chains. Additionally, clipping two or more loops at once is not a problem, also unlike daisy chains. Buy one unless you're saving for something more essential (which you should be, otherwise you'd have sent me some money to buy cams).
