TIP OF THE WEEK

Since we’re nearing the holidays, we thought we’d bring back a popular tip from earlier this year!  This device would make a perfect present for any sport climber!  A useful piece of gear for sport climbers is a stick clip – a device that is attached to a painters pole that enables the climber to pre-clip the first bolt so as to reduce the risk of a ground fall.  

The Superclip is one of the few stick clips that can not only place the rope into a pre-existing draw, but also put up and take down a draw from a hanger. We find this device really useful when hitting up our local sport climbing crags!

Check out this quick tip video for the 3 ways the Superclip can be used.

The SuperClip is sold in all of our PG gear shops and PG Members get 10% OFF!
