Climbing a small diameter rope is hard on the hands, wrists and arms. Our hands were never designed to grip most climbing ropes and carpal tunnel, white finger disease, and tendonitis are problems for climbers. Winter will also be one of the times the Wrist Rocket is most appreciated when you can grip a climbing line with warm gloves.
The Wrist Rocket Ascender by Climbing Innovations is designed to alleviate the stress to the hands and fingers. While not life support it can also be used for 3:1 mechanical advantage for limb walks or RADS style climbing. Now available at ClimbingInnovations.com.
I have added, at no additional cost, a Speedy Stitcher and a section of Velcro to sew into your favorite gloves. Imagine climbing in the winter with warm hands. If you prefer, send me your favorite gloves, return postage paid, and I will sew the Velcro on them for you, no charge.
Also, the locking cam has been removed, (but put in a parts bag) to make easy on and off the rope with one hand.
