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.
i like that
i like the three atachment piotsvearey neat
3-point pulley good!
The videos related to this are cool. I tried the innovations w/an open mind (and low and slow) but too much weirdness happens for me with only one attachment point at the center ring, mostly during changeover to my Fig. 8 descender. I thought the floating setup would work for me, until I untied the dog snap higher up and then could no longer ascend! I need the option to remove the dog snap when passing obstacles. Ultimately I still prefer to rig this hitch climber pulley the same as my ISC Fixe... two attachment points at center ring and a dog snap tied on w/3mm Maxim. This pulley works even better cause the middle hole is offset and it keeps the 3mm prusik from interfering w/the VT. It's DMM so no worries about quality.I think the big advantage of this pulley is using the center hole for a dual 'Y' line setup. Without it the secondary VT or Schwabisch is at the center ring and I have no length to cycle it. Now I can climb normally with the knot farther away. That puts the friction hitch just out of my reach for easy descending but I'll take that tradeoff.
Great to only have one tie in point,,, keeps all the stuff together. The second hole for moving thru the canopy and perfect positioning.
great climbing accessory, if you have a saddle with a bridge than this is something worth getting because it allows you to have only one tie in point and I think it makes tending your slack much easier.
