One device does it all for rappelling, rigging, ascending and rescue. The Totem is the "Swiss Army Knife" of canyoneering gear. This rappelling and rigging device, designed by Rich Carlson, functions like a figure eight, sticht plate and plaquette all in one. Will do everything each of these devices will do, plus a few things unique to the Totem. Use it to rappel on single or double strands of rope from 8mm to 10.5mm. Easy to add friction on the fly. Simple to lock off. Other uses include: rigging releasable eight, joker and stone eight; anchor rigging plate; as a "trolley" for guided rappels, guided hauls and lowers; and much much more.
