The Spikescender is essentially a foot ascender that mounts directly to your existing Gecko spurs. It beats trying to run a pantin or similar foot ascender under your spurs. It can be used to give a helping hand (or should I say foot!) in both DdRT, but really comes into it's own for SRT use.
Designed by NZ climber Dale Thomas, it has been fine tuned to have a very lightly sprung cam that tends very freely up the rope. This helps prevent rope "pooling" above the ascender - one of the causes of the frustrating kick out you might experience with some foot ascenders.
With more and more climbers finding SRT to be their technique of choice for not just ascent but work positioning this is a great add-on. Our tip would be to add the optional Spacer to your other spur to balance out the gaff positioning for an equal stance.
