Topper Station Refit

Topper Station Refit

Award   WINNER 2017
Category   Climbing equipment
Company   EDELRID

The Topper Station is an innovative climbing gym anchor for refitting an existing anchor system. It can be installed from the front, without requiring modification to the wall. As the carabiner can move freely in all directions it significantly reduces rope kinking and twisting and makes it impossible clip in the wrong way. Its innovative gate mechanism also makes it impossible to clip two ropes or unclip the rope. Once the rope has been clipped, it can only be removed by pulling it all the way through. This offers a significant safety advantage. The anchor jaws with wear indicator ensure an extra-large inner radius to minimize rope wear. All parts subject to wear can be easily replaced.

Outstanding in the following evaluation criteria

  • Degree of innovation
  • Functionality
  • Workmanship

Jury Statement

We feel that this new climbing gym anchor system makes an important contribution to improving indoor climbing safety. It is also easy to install and prevents rope wear.
