Hitch-tending Pulleys

A high-quality pulley is the heart of a good doubled-rope climbing system. Using a pulley to tend your hitch frees you up for one-handed slack-tending. A pulley with multiple anchor holes like the Hitch Climber can also neaten up your climbing system and make it more compact, or open up uses for hauling and mechanical advantage. Some climbers like to install a high-efficiency, ball-bearing pulley on the rope bridge of their harness, as this reduces wear on the bridge and lets the climber's tie-in point traverse the bridge more easily. (The Hitch Climber is not to be used in this way.) Using pulleys throughout your climbing system can help reduce overall friction and improve the efficiency of your climbing.

The Hitch Climber Pulley has many uses! It can be used for slack-tending and generating mechanical advantage for rescue and gear hauling, not to mention improving work-positioning systems. With three carabiner holes, the Hitch Climber can be the center of many great SRT and DdRT climbing systems. See the Hitch Climber's Guide PDF at WesSpur.com for more ideas. Should only be used with spliced-eye climbing lines.
