2015 Grivel Clepsydra belay carabiner

Grivel releases the latest in their line of Twin Gate carabiners, the Clepsydra belay ‘biner. Stevie Haston gives us a rundown on why he personally converted and has been using the Clepsydra.

Twin Gate takes some getting used to, but I really do love it. Gloves are a bit tricky as Stevie states, but doable once you have the muscle memory and feels down. I do not recommend using these biners in a setting where you are sharing gear with others that are not familiar with Twin Gate. It will slow them down significantly. Totally recommend these though! The whole line is wonderful.

I’ve pretty much eliminated all screw-gates from my rack and use a collection of these Grivel Twingate biners for belaying, anchors, PAS systems, etc. Love the convenience of not having to futz around with a cumbersome locking mechanism.
