FISH Smart Aiders come with two 5-step aiders per pair. Each aider has
a sub step sewn into the second step, where most of the action will
take place. Unless you are on a slab, that kookie step in the top of
other aiders will be virtually impossible to use. When you find yourself
steep stuff, the second step will be home 90% of the time. If you need
little more height to reach an out of reach placement, step into the
sub-second step on your FISH Aiders. Voila! The extra height---and that
A7pitch---are in the bag. Nice job! Smart Aiders come in assorted colors
and have step stiffeners sewn in to keep 'em open when you need 'em,
and sport more bartacks than most third graders can count. We are now
putting all the steps on the same side. try it, you'll like it! $69.00
per pair or $74.00 per pair with grab-loops sewn into
here for our Aiders FAQ's
People kept asking us, " hey, why don't you guys make some lightweight
aiders so I don't have to lug around a full size set for two moves of
aid." Well this is what we came up with. Our Alpine Aiders feature
all the magic of our regular Smart Aiders, but we used 3/4" webbing
instead of 1" for lighter weight and easier packability. Since
they are the only pair you will carry when going light and fast, we
made them both 5-Step aiders for the pair. As always, tons of bartacks,
step stiffeners, and a sub 2nd step. $68.00 per pair
A new ladder style aider is now available. We decided to go with a 3/4"
nylon webbing on these ladders to avoid the weight issue that is the
downfall of other manufacturers "ladder style" aiders. Each
ladder only weighs 9.5 ounces and is 76" in overall length. Features
include a burly double thickness bottom step, a sub 2Step and a sub
TopStep for maximum reach. A full strength grab loop completes the set
up. Contrasting colors on the steps. Each pair is the same color scheme.
Order two pairs and we will make sure you have two distinct color patterns.
If you already own a set of Fish Smart Aiders, the steps on our new
Ladder Aiders will match up with each step of the Smart Aiders. Random
colors per pair.
We sell the Ladder Aiders only as a pair. $79.00 per pair.
If you just can't live without 1" wide webbing steps, add $7.00
per pair and we will make them up using 1" webbing instead
of the 3/4" webbing for the body and the steps.
SUPER DAISY CHAIN
You are probably wondering why, "Super"? Well, this pup is
close to six feet long, That means you can run a standard big wall tangle
and still be able to clip pieces over your head. Now, ain't that super?
Another good trick is to clip into the middle area of the Super Daisy
and use each free end for your Jumars. If you think your not quite up
to the "Super", try the "Not-so-Super"
which is a modest 3.5 feet long. Both are made from 3/4" HD Flat
webbing and are fully bartacked. The clip-in pockets are 4.5" apart
and sport 3 bartacks per section. Super Daisy $22.00 ea. Not-So-Super
Daisy $18.00 ea.
Extra long and burly alternative to the "pocket style" daisy
chain. This type of daisy chain makes getting adjusted for jugging a
breeze... Speed climbers swear by them for ultra rapid adjustment and
using a "winching" effect to get high on the piece. We use
a big and burly Ancra buckle, coupled with our thick style "aider"
webbing. Overall length is about 6 feet, including a 10" loop for
girth hitching into your harness. One caveat: This style of daisy chain
is NOT as strong as our regular sewn daisy chains, and will wear out
much faster. The aggressive teeth on the buckle will fuzz out your webbing
and in some cases make the daisy unsafe for use after minimal use (one
wall? two walls? less?). Always tie into the main rope at short intervals
while using this style of daisy chain, regardless of product condition
or manufacturer. Speed and convenience costs..... since these daisy
chains have a fast wear cycle, what we will do for you is when you decide
the webbing is smoked, we will send you a new main strap with the 8"
girthing loop that you can re-thread into the buckle for a minimal cost.
Just ask. $23.00 ea. Red, Blue or Random colors.
Replacement webbing, $5.00.
Buy an adjustable daisy chain and the replacement webbing at the same
time for $25.00

|BONEHEAD TIP: Never "cross
clip" a pocket in a daisy chain. If the pocket stitches
blow-out you are gone. Always clip so the pockets load in series,
so if the pockets start to zipper under extreme load, the daisy
chain will work like a sad "air-voyager." Sounds scary
Our Wall Bags reflect the wall climbers need for more than just a
stuff sack. A 420 denier pack cloth body is coupled with a super tough
"18oz. RBS" bottom to keep canned food and the like from
poking through. The clip off loop is bomber on the side of overkill
and is large enough to get a hand into even while wearing gloves.
Three sizes, small & medium for personal items, and large for
food. Random colors!
Sm, 6"x13" tall. Med, 8"x15"
Lrg, 12"x19". $13.00, $18.00, &
|WALL BAG TIP: The small bag can hold
one complete dinner on a wall, including dessert. Reach into
the haul bag, do a mystery draw, and there's your dinner. Plus
if you drop it you only go hungry for that night, not a week.
Pointy objects like bolt kits, headlamps, ice tools and the like make
rubbish out of ordinary bags. Enter the Beefbag. The body features
18 oz. RBS fabric and has an easy closing draw collar top. Beefbag
sizes: 5"x6" (Sm), 6"x10" (Med),
8"x15" (Lrg). The clip in loop is large
enough to grab with gloves on, yet can be clipped in short if you
need to keep the bag close to your body.
$15.00, $19.00, & $26.00 ea. Random colors!
Same sizing as our Wall Bags but in the ONS Mesh fabric.
Easy to see what's inside and lightweight. Has an 18 oz RBS bottom
and a big grab loop. Great for keeping your undies aired out or storing
some wet things after an outing down by the river. Also a nice home
for your down sleeping bag to let it breathe after a sweaty toil filled
$13.00, $18.00, $24.00 Blue, Black, and maybe White or Gray.
9/16" SUPER TIE-OFF WEBBING
This 9/16" Tie-Off web is thin enough to thread through the eye
of pitons easily or behind a truly dicey pin that is hanging out a
mile. Don't mistake this with the lighter duty 1/2" Tie Off Webbing
sold elsewhere. Our Super Tie Off web is 50% stronger than the 1/2"
variety. Also note, this is not that thick 9/16" SuperTape webbing
that is normally too thick to use as tieoffs. 50 feet per pack, natural
color. A standard tieoff takes 2feet. A loop of this tied with a water
knot will break at about 2600lbs +/-. $16.00 ea.
1" TUBULAR WEBBING:
Tie your own runners, bail out of a tree, set up a slackline, lash
some swag down on your boat. Tons of uses. This is the 1" tubular
nylon webbing to use. Assorted colors. Comes in 50 foot lengths. Need
some longer? Email us. $24.00 for 50 ft.
|WEBBING TIP: Remember that any edge
that contacts this or any webbing will severely weaken the
webbing under load. If during the process of tying off a pin
or other object, the webbing gets nicked or frayed, you should
try it again with fresh webbing, for you are now on a time
BUCKET Big Wall Rope Bag
This is a burly version of the tried and true Rope Bucket idea
for keeping your rope organized at a anchor. Our Chum Bucket has
improved on the common designs currently available. We have made
the Chum Bucket large enough for todays modern long ropes, and it
still has room to spare. The "stiffy" rim has no cable
to kink, the clip in loops are extra long and have fast adjusters,
the zipper is a burly #10 YKK with an super stout abrasion guard
to hide the zipper pull when in use. We added two "real"
haul loops so you can yard on the bag with no worries about losing
your rope in a gear failure mishap. Additional features include
a nice wide gusset for easy rope management, a "hot clip"
loop on the gusset so you can always find the sharp end, and the
easiest Over-the-Shoulder system ever. The bottom of the bag has
an additional clip in loop on the inside for when you need to toss
the bag on some hasty rappel.
This is also a great bag for local crag use and storing your rope.
You can clip the adjusters right onto your harness as a belayer
and feed rope right to the leader. Large enough to hold a set of
draws, your shoes, harness and the lead line. Besides the one shoulder
carry method, the Chum Bucket can be worn like a pack for longer
approaches. $99.00 ea.
SNAKE CHARMER Big Wall Rope Bag
For when it really counts, and your ropes need to feed properly,
this is the ultimate unit. Big Wall soloists will rejoice with the
ease of packing the rope and the uniform and tangleless deployment.
Anyone stuck in a stiff upward hurricane on El Cap using this piece
of equipment will be making sandwiches instead of doing a bad version
of the Indian Rope Trick. Features include two grommets in the bottom
to drain away water in storms. The last thing you need is a 96lbs
of water in your rope bag when you rap back into the station. A
"Ballast" strap on the bottom that you can clip some weight
onto to keep the bag from flapping around in the wind when almost
all the rope is deployed. Four internal "Hot Clips", two
up high and two down inside on the bottom panel to tie your rope
to and keep the ends separate and easy to locate. A stiff 2"
webbing reinforced rim that goes all the way around the bag. A super
burly divider to keep the ropes separated. A no frills yet fully
functioning closure and bomber hauling set up that only needs a
single biner to make it all happen. The clip in loops are designed
to work with a single clip in point, a wide spread double clip in,
or even three clips at the anchor. This bag is designed for "on
the wall" use. It is not a casual "carry your rope around
bag". It thrives up on a wall, not at the base of the local
hummock. There are no shoulder straps, padded gizmos, or fluff apparatus
to interfere with its sole function: Big Wall Rope Management. The
back panel is made from a burly 600x300 fabric that wraps around
the full bottom and rear corners to fight abrasion. The main bags
are made from 420D Pack Cloth which is no slouch by itself. All
the loops and add-ons sport numerous bartacks and are bomber to
overkill for the application. $64.00
