Close up of Etrier
My pal practicing his aid leading at Church Bowl Tree.
Comfortable but bulky
- 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.
Great for asending
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.
