Complete Rope Climbing Kits

Spur Climbing Kit General Info

It is the user's responsibility to gain adequate instruction in the use of all climbing equipment. Professional training is recommended.

Upgrades & Substitutions

Upgrades and substitutions in kits can be made by phone or by leaving a comment during checkout. We will swap out the equipment and charge or deduct any difference in retail price. Keep the kit discount and get exactly the gear you want.

WesSpur rope climbing kits include the essential equipment needed to install a line and enter a tree in the Doubled Rope Technique (DdRT). This technique requires less gear and is simple to set up and understand, though physically demanding. (The Premium kit also contains gear for Single Rope Technique (SRT) ascent.) These kits can be expanded later with ascenders or other gear to make climbing easier. All kits contain a work positioning lanyard and adjuster for working the tree, the Tree Climber's Companion as a guide book, and storage gear bag. Each kit gives you a great discount and solid starting gear.

Perfect for professionals who spend a lot of time in the canopy, with great saddle options and top-quality ropes and gear. This kit upgrades the climbing hitch to use an eye and eye prusik and hitch-tending pulley rather than the split tail in the entry kit. This is a more efficient climbing setup. The rope has been upgraded to ArborMaster® Bigfoot 16-strand line, which will handle much better than 12-strand climb lines. A rope sleeve has been included to protect your rope and the trees you climb. The included rope bag makes storing your rope much easier. The throw line has been upgraded to Samson Zing-It, a popular high-strength throw line, which will deploy and store much more easily in the throw line cube.

Three great harness choices let you customize this kit of professional gear to your individual needs and budget.

Yo-YO (RADS) Rec Climber Kit

The Yo-Yo method of climbing is ideal for teaching new climbers because it is designed to make it very difficult to get into trouble. Because the descender is already installed on the system, there is no need to install it to come down - the climber simply removes the top ascender and self-belays on the descender. The I'D descender also has an anti-panic device which locks the rope if the handle is cranked too far (professional users can consider replacing the I'D with the Petzl RIG). The climber is also able to gain mechanical advantage by running the rope through the revolver on the ascender.
