CMC Rescue

Rescue 8

Machined from 1/2-inch (12.5-mm) plate, our classic Rescue 8 design has been refined for even better performance with today’s selection of rescue rope. Descenders no longer routinely use 5/8-in (16-mm) rope, so the smaller dimensions of our Rescue 8 provide greater control. The proprietary finish on the aluminum model provides outstanding wear resistance, while the nickel-chrome-plated steel model excels in high-wear situations, such as sandy, gritty environments. The extended carabiner hole accommodates multiple carabiners.

* Certified range of rope diameters and CMC’s recommendation for best performance.


Super Finish On CMC’s Aluminum 8s 

Whether hard or soft, the surface anodizing on aluminum descenders eventually wears through. Working with a company that specializes in material coatings, we developed a finish for our Rescue 8 and Rappel 8 that outwears every descender we’ve used. After years of heavy use, test samples continue to be used in CMC Rescue School classes without showing any indication of the surface wearing through.
