Tips For Use

  1. Leave the footloop on your boot, even when you're not climbing.  Think about securing the elastic part with a couple of laces.
  2. Store it by attaching it across your back or with a half roll and twist in a ditty bag or use the convenient storage point on the ascender.
  3. The ideal placement for connecting is near your belt area or bridge but there is extra bungee to attach to a chest harness if desired.
  4. During ascent, keep your feet together and moving straight up and down the rope remaining as upright as possible.
