The Edelrid Ohm Resistor is a braking device for belaying. Designed for increasing the friction, it is more specifically used when the belayer is significantly lighter than the climber. We're talking between 22 to 88 pound difference here. Just because you're climbing partner is heavier than you (or vice versa) doesn't mean you can't climb safely and this device can help make it happen.

FINAL SALE: For safety reasons, we cannot accept returns on load-bearing climbing equipment. Sorry for being so mean.

The Edelrid Ohm Resistor is a braking device for belaying. Designed for increasing the friction, it is more specifically used when the belayer is significantly lighter than the climber. We're talking between 22 to 88 pound difference here. Just because you're climbing partner is heavier than you (or vice versa) doesn't mean you can't climb safely and this device can help make it happen.

FINAL SALE: For safety reasons, we cannot accept returns on load-bearing climbing equipment. Sorry for being so mean.

FEATURES of the Edelrid Ohm Resistor

  • Belayer requires significantly less hand braking force to arrest a fall
  • Lowering a heavier climber is much easier to control
  • OHM is attached at the first bolt in the safety chain
  • Should a lead climber fall at the first bolt, the OHM significantly reduces the risk of a possible ground fall
  • Rope handling when belaying a lead climber not affected (no additional friction when paying out rope)
  • Minimum weight belayer: 40 kg
  • For single ropes

Product Specifications
Weight: 12.6 oz
Rope Diameter: 7.8 mm

Product Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but works well Easy enough to use. I have an ~80lbs difference with my climbing partner (about 1.6x my weight) and this works like a charm allowing me belay him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm a big guy but... ...that ain't no thing but a chicken wing with this device! Seriously, though I have been able to lead climb a half dozen times with some belay partners where we had over 100lbs of weight differential, and they reported that it was easy to belay with this ohm in place. Recently, I forgot to hang it on the 1st bolt during the last climb of a long gym session, and my partner definitely noticed it being gone when it came time to lower.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it is supposed to do. Pros: 1) easy to use; 2) the rope slides through easily when leading as long as you do not pull too fast when clipping; and 3) has worked to increase friction on every fall that I've taken, thus protecting my light-weight belayer from being pulled into the first anchor. Cons: 1) a little heavy; 2) the extra friction when falling makes the catch less soft - perhaps a bit harsh; 3) the extra friction requires more strength for rope management while the device is on; and 4) not very easy to remove from the bolt hanger while weight is on the rope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good tool Surprisingly simple and easy to use yet effective. Partner has much more confidence when belaying me now, and I have more confidence with taking a fall with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps you safe As a heavier climber it's nice to have this extra measure of safety. Correct placement is important or you can have clipping. Practice with it on vertical routes first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from “It’s like I’m belaying some one my size!” Those are the words from people who belay me. I’m a big guy and usually have 75-100 pounds on my belayers. It has instilled a confidence not only in myself as the climber but the belayer as well. It’s become a vital piece of kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from adds friction!!! wow!!!!!!! now I can belay my partner, what a great device. you put the rope through the ohm and then when your partner takes a fall the ohm add friction to the rope so you don't get pulled into the first draw!! great!!! wow!!!!!!!!!!!
Date published: 2022-03-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very solid My partner and I decided to invest in an Ohm after taking a practice lead fall in the gym. I fell from the anchors and we basically met at the first bolt. We looked at each other and, in our surprise, agreed that it would be wise to get something to add some friction in the system to counteract my 40-50 lb weight difference over her. The Ohm has been perfect for this, and helps me to climb harder on lead without the worry of pulling my partner up to the first bolt or the worry of me decking. Overall, it is a very simple and easy to use device that is solid and will last forever, and most importantly it helps give me the confidence that my partner and I won't get hurt from me falling.
