Description

Whether its A0 or A5, the Ladder Aider provides you with the next step.

For demanding and technical aid climbing and big-wall ascents, stand strong with the Metolius 8 Step Ladder Aider. This aider features Biothane step stiffeners to keep the step open and a reinforced clip-in point for durability. A full strength grab loop gives you something to hold onto when reaching for that next placement, and a dedicated clip-in point lets you enchain aiders without collapsing the bottom step.

Two thin sticks on the top and bottom as well as tiny sticks on the side, all wrapped in duct tape as well as a few bands of electrical kept these ladders permanently spread.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've just recently gotten onto big wall climbing. practicing my aid on single pitch routes then doing 3 big walls in 3 weeks was an awesome experience! I used the Etriers at first but when a friend let me try his out, I was hooked on the 8 step Ladders. They make the process of big wall climbing way faster in my opinion. They are much easier to blast up and make that top step, have a full strength and big grab loop, are comfortable to stand on all day, and are same weight as Etriers. The Biothane steps are very nice BUT I did have to make a homemade spreader bar on top step to keep rest of the ladder wide open. Over-all I felt very comfortable on these ladders and made Half Dome a very sweet experience! (picture) me and Devin on top of pitch 18.

One of the longest aiders I have used. It's about 6 feet I'd say. The two different colors are totally different so they are easy to tell witch one is left and witch is right.

How long is it?

Sturdy, durable, and functional. I plan to use this for hunting from a tree stand, but I'm sure it has many other design applications.
