The Treemagineers bring us this compact rigging plate and high efficiency pulley in one! Developed with those clever folk at DMM, this is the first hot forged pulley to hit the market and was designed to be at the heart of friction hitch climbing systems (using eye to eye slings), but has many other applications. Two colors to choose from.
Rope Efficiency: 70%

Taking the place of conventional fairlead pulleys, the Hitch Climber helps organize carabiners, reducing the probability of poor configurations such as cross loading. It doesn't matter if you are ascending or descending, carabiners tend to be kept in the correct alignment. A complete second climbing system (or lanyard) can be added to the spare hole, making it easier to traverse between two anchors. There are even rescue and load hauling functions.
