DMM Hitch Climber Pulley (gold or red), up to 1/2" diameter rope
This unique micro-sized pulley is the hub of many modern, DdRT (doubled rope technique) climbing systems and affords a variety of highly-efficient rope working techniques. Step inside and check out our link to The Hitch Climber's Guide to the Universe (pdf) for more on this climbing marvel.
The Hitch Climber is not just another fairlead pulley but the hub of a friction-hitch work positioning system that helps align carabiners properly. Blessed with rope-friendly flares and rounded edges, the Hitch Climber Pulley supports an assortment of cool tricks for climbing, rescue, and load-hauling duties. Unlike any micro-sized pulley before it, the Hitch Climber features a third hole that provides the unique ability to connect two climbing systems into one position on the harness to simplify previously complicated maneuvers. Available in two colors to differentiate climbing from rigging applications. For lines 9 to 14 mm, 3.4 oz.
DMM has issued an official statement regarding the use of the HITCH CLIMBER PULLEY on Harness/Saddle bridges. Please read this statement before use of a HITCH CLIMBER PULLEY on a rope or webbed bridge. The PDF download can be found here.
I climb with a swabish and use this to tend it. It allows me to only have to use one attachment point to my saddle instead of two. The body weight on the working end of my rope keeps the pulley from flopping around, thus making hitch tending more efficient.
