Comfortable but bulky

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.

sort of fun hahaha

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.
