WesSpur rope climbing kits include the essential equipment needed to install a line and enter a tree in the Moving Rope Technique (MRT). This technique requires less gear and is simple to set up and understand, though more physically demanding than SRT. (The Premium kit contains gear for Stationary Rope System (SRS) 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.

The Medium Harness for this kit is now a comparable harness by Buckingham.

This is the best starting rope climbing kit on the market! This is our recommended kit for entry-level climbers who have a limited budget but nonetheless want quality equipment.

We’ve upgraded the rope in this kit to Samson Arbor-Plex, and switched out the split tail system for an eye and eye prusik (the same climbing system as the Deluxe kit). These changes make ascension and canopy movement smoother, and offer more versatility in how you use your kit. A Hawkeye rope flipline is included to aid in work positioning. The split-suspension harness is durable and comfortable, featuring a wide, padded back and a leather-lined sit sling. This kit also includes the Tree Climber’s Companion, an essential guide to knots, techniques, safety, and gear for beginning climbers. It also comes with a burly, military-style duffle bag to hold all your equipment, and built-in savings.

Kit w/ Size 2 Harness
kit86‑2

Featuring a mix of new gear and returning favorites, this kit brings together the best components Petzl offers and gives you a complete spurless DdRT climbing setup. The gear in this kit is designed to keep weight to a minimum and execution as simple as possible. As a result, this is a great choice for beginners and veterans alike. The new and improved Zigzag definitively out-performs traditional hitch systems and, coupled with the Zillon, provides precise and easy work positioning. The adjustable friction saver can be set from the ground to make the setup process faster. The 2014 Sequoia is lightweight, low-profile, and optimized for comfort. Dyneema-coated Airline finds the sweet spot between flexibility and stiffness, allowing precision throwing while avoiding knotting and tangling.

The entire kit fits perfectly in the Petzl Transport haul bag for ease and comfort, and weighs an incredibly-light 26 lb.
