Perfect Descent

Perfect Descent is the world leader in Speed climbing auto-belays and the Exclusive Supplier and Official Sponsor of IFSC world cups. More than a competition auto-belay, Perfect Descent can be found in climbing gyms, recreation centers, 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, Perfect Descent's 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, while saving 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 Perfect Descent's goal is to have a positive impact on the sport of climbing.  You can find Perfect Descent auto-belays making a difference in Speed competitions around the world by reducing risk and promoting a fair field of play.  As the Official Auto-Belay of the IFSC, Perfect Descent provide valuable sponsor support to World Cup and continental competitions, as well as to individual athletes, teams, event organisers, and National Federations.

Perfect Descent's mission is to build a better auto-belay through an obsessive pursuit of quality and craftsmanship, and it has 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.
