The one I'm using is called a "Ropeman", made by Wild Country of
I'm using the MK1 version, which accepts rope from 8-11 mm diameter.
11 mm is equivalent to 7/16 inch, and that is what I use. This one has
a split shell, which means you can separate the halves and clamp it on
in the middle of a rope, as opposed to having to thread the end of the
rope through it. Similar to how a snatch block works.
Google will find you several dealers. The price at:
is $29.95. Scroll down to the very bottom of the page, it is the one
in the middle.
I will never climb again without this or something very similar. It is
a fantastic device!
