You couldn't possibly justify not bringing the Wild Country Ropeman Ascender with you on big walls because this tiny device is super versatile in the vertical world. Use it as a prusik or pulley for hauling loads or self-rescue in emergency situations. It's simple to place 10-13mm ropes through thanks to the forged sideplates, easy to release thanks to the flat cam profile, and superlight thanks to the forged alloy construction.
As a company dedicated to meeting, then beating, the standards of the day the Zeros project was the essential first part of our 21st century overhaul.This overhaul was dedicated to making the lightest gear possible. Inspired by the new era of speed ascents in the Valley by the Hubers, Dean Potter, Leo Houlding and the new wave of uber-difficult clean-aid routes others we felt that the time was ripe for the original cam company to make its contribution. Talking to our guys 'on the ground' and plenty of retailers we tried to figure was missing from the rack - what tools could make the difference? Something that could advance tiny 'clean' placements, that was so light it was no burden to carry, that was so flexible at the head it wouldn't lever out or break the placement?For all of these questions there seemed one obvious solution and the Zeros project was born. A success from day one these incredible cams have a combination of features that makes us sure that Zeros are 'clever' enough and strong enough to satisfy the demands of cutting edge climbers for the ultimate tool in their quest for more and more extreme adventures.The smallest and lightest cams ever made, Zero Friends were designed without compromise; flexible, strong and reliable, they are perfect for free or aid climbing and essential kit on every hardcore rack.Please note that Zeros size 1 and 2 are not available at the present time and the specifications and pictures are for reference only.

Description of Wild Country Ropeman 2 A best seller from day one the Ropeman 1 and 2 have become the ubiquitous tools for a wide range of mountaineering and cragging activities. From prussiking to pulleys and mouflage the list of uses and adaptations for these small but perfectly formed devices goes on and on.However its incredibly important to understand a little more about them and their strengths and weaknesses to appreciate which one you should buy for your chosen activity.So this is where the Ropeman Mk2 came in. With a stainless steel cam that allowed a more complicated and more aggressive looking but ultimately more rope friendly design the Ropeman Mk2 was the solution to Wild Countrys sleepless nights as it could be used on ropes down to 8.5mm. This meant for many of the Alpine activities it was adopted for it was a much safer alternative and with the pair of them available customers had a choice. Thus the bottom line and the most reliable piece of safety advice is to follow the simple rule that the Ropeman Mk1 is for single ropes only while the Ropeman Mk2 will cover both half ropes and single ropes. Please make sure if you are purchasing a Ropeman Mk1 or Mk2 that you fully read the instructions and make sure that the use suits the device you have bought.
