WesSpur’s climbing kits contain everything you need to get started with a spur climbing or rope climbing package. On this page you will find upgrades to take your kit beyond the basics.

This upgrade gives the user a rope and friction hitch setup to add climbing on the Doubled Rope Technique to their kits. Combining climbing on the rope with using the flipline from the spur kit, the climber can maintain two points of connection to the tree while cutting and bypass obstacles such as branches without ever having to be untied. The use of a climbing line allows the user more mobility in the tree and the ability to rappel quickly to the ground.
Kit contains: 150' ArborMaster® Bigfoot, SMC Micro Pulley, 2 RockO Double-locking Carabiners, RIT 9mm Eye and Eye Prusik.
This kit provides a climbing line upgrade that can be used as described above, and also includes essential safety gear for working in trees.
Contains: 150' ArborMaster® Bigfoot climbing line, friction hitch, hitch-tending pulley, figure 8, rope bag, Vertex Vent Helmet, Boas Safety Glasses, Atlas Gloves, and helmet-attachment ear muffs.
This upgrade to the rope climbing starter kits enables the user to climb in the Single Rope Technique (SRT) using ascenders. This is useful for long ascents. With the gear in this kit, the user can set up a system where the climber alternates between standing on the foot ascender and the foot strap. Alternating in this method makes climbing the rope a lot like climbing a ladder.
Kit Contains: CMI hand ascender and foot ascender (choice of right or left), ascender foot strap, delta link, standard figure 8, and 7 feet of Sterling 8mm cord that can be used to tie a prusik.
Contains an extra-long Icetail prusik for footlock climbing. Also contains Pirate carabiner and standard figure 8 for rappelling back to the ground. Standard length of footlock prusik is 40" to the eye. Also available in 38" or 42" by request.
This kit combines the new Zigzag 2 with carabiners and spliced climbing line so that you can get a professional climbing system in one convenient kit. Oval Petzl OK Triact carabiners are ideal for doubled-rope systems, and Samson Velocity is one of the most popular climbing lines, lightweight with great handling and durability.
This kit comes stowed in a WesSpur rope bag which will be a home for your Zigzag system and keep it ready for instant deployment.
The Rope Wrench grants smooth, precise control to the climber, and is an excellent tool for working the tree in SRS, saving time switching between SRS & MRS systems. All the hardware you need to experience the Rope Wrench is in this kit. You'll want to have a way to tend the Rope Wrench. A trick using gear you already have is to run a lanyard over your shoulder and clip it into the Hitch Climber.
