Description of Metolius 8-Step Ladder AiderMetolius Climbing manufactures rock climbing gear and was founded in 1983 by master craftsman Doug Phillips. Doug started in his Central Oregon garage, making gear and selling it in the Smith Rock parking lot or down in the Dihedrals. Back then, much of the gear we now take for granted wasnt available, so we just made it ourselves.FeaturesLadder-style construction with 8 steps for maximum ease of use1 25 mm flat nylon webbingBiothane step stiffeners insure the steps always stay openReinforced clip-in pointFull-strength grab loopDedicated clip-in point at the bottom for enchaining aiders withoutcollapsing the bottom stepOverall length 74 1880 mmStep spacing 9 229 mm11.5 oz. 326 gStrengthEnd-to-end 18 kN 4050 lbfGrab loop 22 kN 4950 lbfSteps 4.4 kN 1000 lbfPrice 38.95
