Questions & Reviews

Centerfold (used product regularly)
Great tool when used in the right application. If you are hauling, bug walling or caving it’s a must. But for Skimo there are lighter tools that can be used to jug up a wall with a microtaxion, grigri, shunt, prussick, etc. if you need it for a specific objective though this is the tool for hand ascenders. Tried and true.
