  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

small and light you can stuff them away and never notice them untel you need them.


great aiders, NOT FOR BIG WALL

    great in all, but DO NOT BUY THEM if you are going on a big wall, unless you ll use them with the ascenders to follow.

    work good if you have to do a small aid part in a pitch


    Shorty's review sums it up

      Sometimes you just have to agree with someone else, and then when multiple people agree, you know it works!


      Great for Canyoneering

        Lightweight, compact, bomber strength and simple to work with. Can be used for going back up ropes, getting over short dropoffs without deploying a rope or for getting out of potholes. A great tool to pack along.


        Excellent for moving fast on a big route

          When you’re heading up a long route with only a pitch or two of aid, these are definitely the way to go. Much smaller and lighter than standard aiders, they are easy to bunch up and clip to the back of your harness. If you’re spending more then a day up there, get something beefier. Anything under a day and these are the ticket.
