Complete Spur 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. In order to help the user attain a basic understanding of the skills and knots required to use these kits, we include a free copy of The Tree Climber’s Companion with every starter kit but this is not intended to be the sole source of instruction.

Spur climbing damages trees. Climbing with spurs damages trees. Spurs are most often used for removals. Rope climbing kits are available for non-harmful climbing.

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 spur climbing starter kits contain everything necessary to spur climb a tree in one price-saving package. Compare our kits to those offered by others, and you will find the gear quality and savings in a WesSpur kit to be much higher. Every climbing kit includes a large discount, and all gear needed to cover the basics, as outlined in the components below. See the sizing charts below to determine what size harness you need.

kit20L
XL Harness
kit20XL

We've put this kit together to be the best starting kit on the market. We believe that entry-level climbers still need good equipment. This kit is full of rugged, dependable climbing gear that gets the job done without extra bells and whistles. This is our recommended kit for entry-level climbers who have a limited budget but nonetheless want quality equipment. The Shin Cups pads provide rigid support and are far superior to soft pads in terms of comfort. Harness features a wide, padded back support and leather-lined sit sling - a big step up over the cotton canvas belts many climbers start with. Klein spurs have the widest range of adjustment for different height climbers, and feature an offset shank and interchangeable, replaceable gaffs.

Kit Contains: Wide-back harness, Klein steel spurs with Shin Cups pads, 12' x 5/8" Hi-Vis Steel-core Flipline, US Standard Adjuster, Pirate carabiner, Tree Climber's Companion, large canvas gear bag.

Please note: the Weaver wide-back saddle will be available in April. Until then, kits are supplied with Buckingham wide-back harness.

Kit w/ XL Harness
KIT108X

This super-economical spur climbing kit brings the price down as far as possible by using the simplest, no-frills gear available. The Weaver harness is a single-thick, cotton webbing harness with no padding. Leather 'L' Pads offer minimal padding. While this kit is still full of quality-manufactured gear, the price is kept low by cutting out padding and extra features on the spur pads and harness. This kit is similar to the basic kits offered by many other companies. We encourage any beginning climbers to consider the Entry-Level Spur Kit above for a much more comfortable set of gear.

Climbing Line Upgrade

Climbing Line Upgrade

kit26

This upgrade gives the user a rope and friction hitch setup to add climbing on the Doubled Rope Technique to their kits. Combining climbing on the rope with using the flipline from the spur kit, the climber can maintain two points of connection to the tree while cutting and bypass obstacles such as branches without ever having to be untied. The use of a climbing line allows the user more mobility in the tree and the ability to rappel quickly to the ground.

Kit Contains 150' ArborMaster® Bigfoot, SMC micro pulley, RIT eye-to-eye prusik, and two RockO carabiners.
