Trango SQUID

Weary of worrying about your ankles and the landing below while wiggling your way to the first clip? Take a SQUID to calm your nerves and call me in the morning! This handy little device mounts on the end of a lightweight extendable painters pole (available at any hardware or paint store) and enables you to clip a quick draw and your rope into the first bolt on any route while standing safely on the ground. You can also clip your rope into a pre-clipped hanging 'draw! If you're working a seriously overhanging line - the SQUID can be used to rig and de-rig your project - eliminating awkward swinging and tensioning to reach each bolt and then manually unclip it. Use in situations that risking a fall would be totally unacceptable and likely result in a bad landing and injury. Perfect for turning your next dry tool nightmare... into a sweet dream!
Warning: Not to be used for bypassing rivet ladders, strings of dead heads or incipient RURP seams without first consulting with your spiritual advisor. discontinued
