Perfect Descent is the world leader in speed climbing auto belays and Exclusive Supplier and Official Sponsor to IFSC World Cup competition. More than a competition auto belay, Perfect Descent can be found in climbing gyms, recreation centres, and fun climbing attractions around the world.
The origin of Perfect Descent was a direct response to the massive recall of the Redpoint Descender that rocked the climbing wall industry in 2009. With the manufacturer of Redpoint opting to exit the climbing gym market rather than update the devices, operators were left with no options to recoup their investment. Perfect Descent stepped forward to provide a solution that allowed recalled Redpoint Descenders to be put back in service under the Perfect Descent brand.
While today’s Perfect Descent Auto Belays bear little in common with the original Redpoint Descender, our drive to provide climbing gym operators with effective and cost saving solutions has only grown stronger. Hand-built in the USA from high quality materials and components, Perfect Descent Auto Belays are lightweight, compact, and easy to use and maintain. Durable lanyards and a two-year service cycle, the longest service interval in the industry, save climbing gym operators time and money. Perfect Descent is the ideal tool for getting the most from indoor training sessions and gives climbers of all ability levels the freedom to climb when they want and how they want.
We know that climbing creates healthy, purposeful and inclusive communities, and our goal is to have a positive impact on the sport of climbing. You can find Perfect Descent Auto Belays making a difference in Speed climbing competitions around the world by reducing risk and promoting a fair field of play. As the Official Auto Belay of the IFSC, we provide valuable sponsor support to World Cup, Continental, and Qualifying competitions as well as to individual athletes, teams, event organisers, and National Federations.
At Perfect Descent, our mission is to build a better auto belay through an obsessive pursuit of quality and craftsmanship, and we have a list of accolades to show for it. Perfect Descent is the original speed drive auto belay (and the fastest), the first auto belay to be licensed for World Cup competition, the first auto belay to be used for the Olympic Games, and the first auto belay to feature a redundant retractation mechanism. Perfect keeps getting better.
