This section also houses aid climbing gear like:
Black Diamond - bandoliers, pins, pitons, pegs, hooks, hammers, gloves, haulbags and portaledges and flysheets.
Metolius - aiders, daisies and haulbags.
Moses Enterprises (which we import from the U.S.) - rivet hangers, hooks and leepers.
Petzl - sky hooks, etriers, fifi hooks and swivels.
Wild Country daisy chains.
Yates - etriers, copper heads, aluminium heads, circle heads, rivet hangers, daisy chains and bandoliers.
Petzl also supply us with a range of etriers which can also be found under Pegs and Aid in our Professional section (as they are used far more frequently in Industrial Access). These are reinforced webbing etriers for compactness and are ideal for aiding your way up El Cap.
Pegs are still in common use for expedition purposes, and snowed up winter rock routes (both Scottish and Alpine). When this is combined with the rapid development locally of South Wales Sandstone (which takes well to pegs for insitu gear) we find that a wide range of pegs is indispensible to the shop.
We have a range of pegs from Black Diamond in a wide variety of widths and styles, we can get hold of soft pegs if you are planning on equipping a route in the Dolomites.
Perfect for 7 hour belays, but be warned! One of our staff fell asleep in his.
