Metolius created the 1-inch 5-Step Aider with traditional, time-tested construction with 5 staggered, triangular steps. The design is improved on over conventional aiders with Biothane step stiffeners to keep the steps open and a dedicated clip-in point at the bottom for attachment to other aiders.

Metolius Climb 5-Step Aider AIDE00305. It features a dedicated clip-in point at the bottom for enchaining aiders without collapsing the bottom step.
Description of Metolius 5-Step Ladder Pocket 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.FeaturesLightweight, 5-step, ladder-style aiderStores compactly in attached pouch 19 mm solid nylon webbingOverall length 60 1524 mmStep spacing 12 305 mm6.5 oz. 184 gStrengthEnd-to-end 18 kN 4050 lbfSteps 4.4 kN 1000 lbf

The Metolius Easy Aider uses a unique adjustment system to help you size it precisely for aiding a pitch or jugging behind your partner. The foot loops can be tightened to your shoes with a simple nylon strap, so you don't have to worry about your feet popping out over and over while you're cleaning 200 feet of pins. Metolius used a wide foot loop to provide extra comfort--something you'll really appreciate after five days on a grade VI nail-up.
