For demanding and technical aid climbing and big-wall ascents, stand strong with the Metolius 8 Step Ladder Aider. This aider features Biothane step stiffeners to keep the step open and a reinforced clip-in point for durability. A full strength grab loop gives you something to hold onto when reaching for that next placement, and a dedicated clip-in point lets you enchain aiders without collapsing the bottom step.

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.
