Complete Spur Climbing Kits

WesSpur spur climbing starter kits contain everything necessary to spur climb a tree in one price-saving package. Compare our kits to those offered by others, and you will find the gear quality and savings in a WesSpur kit to be much higher. Every climbing kit includes a large discount, and all gear needed to cover the basics, as outlined in the components below.

See the sizing charts below to determine what size harness you need.

Tree & Pole Gaffs

Kits are supplied with tree gaffs by default. If you climb mainly hardwoods or thin-barked trees, you will want to switch to pole gaffs. Please tell us in the 'comments' section and we will make the change.

Spur Climbing Kit General Info

It is the user's responsibility to gain adequate instruction in the use of all climbing equipment. Professional training is recommended. In order to help the user attain a basic understanding of the skills and knots required to use these kits, we include a free copy of The Tree Climber’s Companion with every starter kit (except the Super Economy) but this is not intended to be the sole source of instruction.

Spur climbing damages trees. Climbing with spurs damages trees. Spurs are most often used for removals. Rope climbing kits are available for non-harmful climbing.

Upgrades and substitutions in kits can be made by phone or by leaving a comment during checkout. We will swap out the equipment and charge or deduct any difference in retail price. Keep the kit discount and get exactly the gear you want.

Kit w/ Medium Harness
Kit w/ Large Harness
Kit w/ XL Harness

Kits are supplied with tree gaffs by default. Pole Gaffs (better for thin bark) may be substituted by request.

This super-economical spur climbing kit brings the price down as far as possible by using the simplest, no-frills gear available. Leather 'L' Pads offer minimal padding. While this kit is still full of quality-manufactured gear, the price is kept low by cutting out padding and extra features on the spur pads and harness. This kit is similar to the basic kits offered by many other companies. We encourage any beginning climbers to consider the Entry-Level Spur Kit above for a much more comfortable set of gear.

Medium Harness
Large Harness
XL Harness

This kit comes with all the basic spur climbing gear in our regular kit, plus 150' of XTC Poseidon. Included Tree Climber's Companion illustrates how to use this rope in a traditional, closed system.

Kits are supplied with tree gaffs by default. Pole Gaffs (better for thin bark) may be substituted by request.

The Deluxe Spur Kit is for the working climber who spends long days in their spurs. Buckingham Big Buck Pads have an angled steel insert and extra-wide padding to spread the pressure on your leg over a wider area. The Yale Maxi-Flip is a popular flipline due to the strength and durability that the hand-spliced cabling of the eyes provides. Rock Exotica's Rockgrab Lanyard Adjuster features a unique 90 degree twist in the cam lever so that the unit lies in a more easily accessible position.

The Deluxe kit offers three different high-performance saddle options. The Viking is a great all-around workhorse; it's uncluttered, well-padded, with a replaceable 'Warp Speed' rope-bridge. The Spartan is modeled after the Buckingham Ergovation, and is a heavy-duty, super comfortable saddle that provides support for spurring while also relieving pressure on the hips and lower-back. The new Petzl Sequoia 2019 is lightweight, sleek, and low-profile, with a sewn rope bridge and quick-snaps on legs and belt.
