Probably going to save someone a nasty injury by losing this inappropriate bit of climbing gear being misused in a cave/pitch scenario but, hey, it belongs to someone and they might want it back.

Found in Swildon's Hole (no surprises for guessing where); designed for use belaying from waist, clipped to a harness and requiring quick and precise hand movements so it's pretty useless at a cave pitch head but then what the hell do I know. Why people don't just use an Italian friction hitch for ladder work beats the crap out of me.

So, tell me what colour it is and where you think you dropped it and you can have the piece of rubbish back.

PM me.
