Sewn from burly reinforced webbing, these ets are durable & stiff – bomber!

Black Diamond Etriers have a unique design featuring a 3-inch (7.6cm) reinforced clip-in loop, a “half-step” top step for max height on placements, and a ballast clip-loop on the bottom, giving you the ability to weight your ets in high winds. Steps have been reinforced for ease of use and added durability. Sold singly rather than in pairs.

My pal practicing his aid leading at Church Bowl Tree.


Comfortable but bulky

  • Gender:Male
  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I use the alpine version of this aider for nearly anything that requires a couple pitches of standing on gear, but when it comes to real aid likes or long sections of jugging the extra comfort is worth it. These aiders are literally twice as heavy and bulky as the alpine aiders, so only go this route is you really need them.


One Mistake Big Pancake!!!

    Aider Aider, Your so sweet
    You feel so good beneath my feet
    I clip you on and take the lead
    Because bird beaks just can't be freed
    Sometimes when the placements are far away
    I have to top step you... Etrier
    From A1 all the way up to A6b
    Your the only aider for me
    With you your help I slam a pin
    into cracks fingernail thin
    On the rock or on my jugs
    Oh aider kisses and hugs
    Your my aider but your more than that
    Your my one way ticket up El Cap.
    What I mean to say Aider is your the one
    That makes aid climbing sort of fun.

    Flagged?! Cedar's Erniesque poems are the crown jewels of the shopping experience.


    excellent deal!

      got this for less than $16 when the everyone else is selling it for more than $35!! what a steal! after several hours use, the webbing takes a toll on your feet and i was a bit sore. however, i doubt another product would be any different.
