For advanced techniques, this is handy

I became a convert to this pulley a year ago and it still boggles me how many setups can be done with it.

Simply put, if you are looking for advanced climbing techniques, get a spliced line and then this pulley will save you lots of headaches and time. When used for self-tending setups, I love it.

Warning: I found that I needed a spliced rope with this pulley for advanced climbing techniques. End knots on my DRT rope interfered with my hitch and the pulley - which can be very dangerous.

I was very skeptical about the three holes at first just because of strength concerns. I often tend to have multiple lines in the air and this really doesn't help much with that. I was hoping I could get the effect of Treeman's Petzl PAW with it.

Many of my arborist friends swear by this setup over a traditional pulley when used with distels, VTs, etc. I have to agree. It works great and is very strong.

Can't live without it!

One of the best tree climbing products of the last 10-15years. I can't live with out it. If you don't have one you are in the dark ages of climbing. Nothing bad to say. The rope friendly edges are great!

Great Pulley System.

After watching a video on youtube that demonstrated the hitch climber I knew I had to try one. I use a 30" eye to eye splittail out of 10mm beeline. Make sure you use a schwabisch prussick for the friction hitch and everything works fine.
