The Munich-based company Auroco presents a game changer. The patented Epic is a portable auto-belay device for lead climbing. Set it up, load the rope, and climb. The Epic will feed out slack and lock off as necessary. No partner required. When you’re ready to lower, just use the arm-worn remote control. The company claims it will revolutionize both rock climbing and industrial access work. What do you think, would you lead with an autobelay?
