Please note: A complete GGG system is just that--an entire, safe, cave-ready ascending system. All our Frogs have double cow's tails with 'biners, and a seat harness.
The Frog is the lightest, most compact mechanical ascending system available, used widely in Europe and by expedition cavers world-wide. The Frog is a sit-stand system that does everything fairly well but excels at technical ropework. The Frog is also great anytime you have multiple drops with horizontal passages in between because of its simplicity and size.
The GGG Frog includes: GGG Frog Chest Harness, Petzl Croll chest ascender, GGG Adjustable Frog Foot Loop, Petzl Ascension handled ascender, MR short oval, adjustable safety strap, dynamic rope double cow's tails wtih two lon-locking 'biners, and GGG Caver Seat Harness with MR half-moon screwlink.

What's so special about the GGG Frog Chest Harness? It's the "H" design of the back of the harness. Other harnesses simply attach to the back of the seat harness or are of a figure 8 design, both of which tend to ride up and painfully chafe the back of the caver's neck. The GGG Frog Harness separates the two sides and has attachment points on the front of the seat harness for maximum efficiency, comfort and convenience.
