Rated 5 out of 5 by from really like it... I got this as a gift from my boyfriend and have to say it is one of the most convenient tools to have while doing any type of climbing. I have used it as a daisy chain, since I am usually one of the lightest climbers in our group, and to anchor myself during clean up. Haven't used for anchor yet, since I already have gear for that. The last time I used it I was leading a 5.10 sport route, my arms were ready to give up about 5 feet from the main bolts and I just pulled this awesome sling out, adjusted to make sure by carabiner was on the last loop, then went straight for it and clipped. I am not very tall, so it extended far enough to my exact arm's reach, just perfect. After a few weeks of having this handy tool, my boyfriend decided to get one for himself. :) Just make sure that you get the correct size for yourself! The sling, once it is girth hitched to your harness, should extend far enough for you to extend your arm up and out all the way. If it does not, then is too short for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always attached to my harness I girth hitched this on my harness from day 1 and just always leave it on there. I keep a locker on there so its ready go. Before I was just using a double length sling for my PA which was fine most of the time, but then if you need to use it for something else you're kinda screwed. It's great to have a separate designated PA. Especially when you need 2 at one time, such as going around someone on a hand line or clipping in to build anchors. I debated for awhile if I really needed this but decided to pull the trigger and have not regretted it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Piece of Gear Just got this a few weeks ago... and I love it! Much safer that the classic daisy--basically idiot proof. The 22kN rating for each loop doesn't hurt either. I always have mine on my harness and it makes cleaning routes a breeze. The atomic orange (with bright blue end loop; not pictured here) is hard to miss. Super easy to find with a quick glance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good, comfortable gear I just got this and have used it to clean sport routes and belay a second person up a multi-pitch. I feel way more comfortable on this gear than I ever have on a daisy chain...SOLID.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from "I love this 'what do you call it again?'" I bought this as an early birthday present for a friend. While he had been climbing before, he had not been a frequent. I have just enough basic gear to share with a friend, and I'd been making him use a pair of slings of the 240 cm variety as anchors (all I had to spare). I got him this Metolius PAS as an early birthday present. While he should probably be writing this, I can vouch that he said he loved the PAS, or "what did you call it again?", particularly after having suffered with the pair of lengthy slings for a few climbing trips. Rather conveniently it came in a pair of his favourite colours as well - side bonus! Anyway. The Metolius PAS is easy to use, whether beginner or more experienced. It's easily edited to the most convenient length for the anchors you need cleaned, attached to, whatever. Unlike a daisy chain you need not worry about whether you've double clipped yourself through the loops (more for my ease of mind when taking a new-to-climbing-friend out to the mountains). I do wish that Metolius made/REI sold, a slightly longer version, for those ledgey belay stations where you might like a slightly longer leash, for your own personal comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PAS is a MUST Canyoneering This PAS is awesome, I would suggest this in any Canyoneering or Climbing kit. The PAS is very versatile.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smart Remix of a Classic This daisy employs several great features. The major design feature is its use of several separate links chained together. This eliminates the greatest hazard of a classic daisy: clipping through two separate sections, loading only the stitching of one link. If that stitching blows, you're history. In the PAS, each link has a burly 10 lines of stitching, reducing the risk that it will fail. A few problems I have with this daisy are mostly personal preference, but problems all the same. Often, at the anchors, trying to pull all the stacked rings off the locker to secure yourself is not efficient. Also, as this daisy has broken in, the stiff melted ends on each link sometimes end up catching on each other, creating unsettling jerks when you first load it. Finally, this daisy is about a foot shorter than your standard. If you are using the PAS and a standard, you ALWAYS have to shorten the longer one to load both anchors evenly. I would highly suggest buying a pair, eliminating this problem. In a nutshell, I prefer the older style daisies, but this one is definitely safer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly Convenient Bought this before a trip to Smith, and was amazed by how easy this makes it to clip into anchors. Previously would tie in with the rope or slings, and I was reluctant to spend money on this, but it is just one less thing to think about. Clip a locker into each bolt, and you're done. Only gripe I have with it is that there were some anchors where it was a little too short to clip both, but that can be fixed with an extra quickdraw.
