    S/J 2.1 drenaline and pulleysaver. Should retire from climbing but enjoy it, just cant do it every day, 3 days a week climbing is enough. Haas and foot ascender.

    Still on my 2.1 but getting worn thinking of changing. Is it worth changing to a S/J 3, stay on a new 2.1, change to zigzag or go srt

    Foot Ascender Recommendation

    My pantin, just fits on with my spikes, straps could do with being slightly longer, but then got size 11 feet. Gecko alloy spikes and leather foot straps.
