This kit comes with all the basic spur climbing gear in our regular Entry Level Spur Climbing Kit, plus 150' of XTC Poseidon. Included Tree Climber's Companion illustrates how to use this rope in a traditional, closed system. This kit expands your options for entering the tree while keeping cost to a minimum.

Sturdy, professional-grade equipment that will get the job done in comfort and saves you $$. The ideal place to start for people who are just starting climbing or who don’t want to invest too much in climbing gear. Buckingham Split-suspension Harness, Buckingham Steel spurs, and shin cup pads make this kit durable and comfortable. This is a big step up from the thin cotton saddles and L-pads that many companies make their employees start with, plus you get one of the best field guides to tree climbing ever written.

Note: The rope grab in this kit may temporarily be substituted with a similar U.S. standard rope grab from US Rigging Supply due to a supply shortage of the Climb Right version. The substitute rope grab is nearly identical, though it does contain an external cable.
