Rigging and Aid Climbing

Primarily the kit to place bolts with, and the kit required to reach the places where you want to place bolts! There are no drills on here, but that’s because everyone has their own specific needs and preferences; this section does have the hammers and drivers for more caver-specific uses that won’t be found in good hardware outlets. For the bolts and hangers that you’ll be placing, the caver specific items (again, not the cheap options available in hardwares) are in their own section.

Petzl M8 Bolt Driver 
£25.20

Petzl M8 Bolt Driver

Light and compact tool for hand driving the 8mm self drill anchor. All steel, with a folding, long grip handle to facilitate turning the driver while placing the bolt. If bolt 'binds up' the handle may be struck gently, to free it up. Wrist loop to allow clipping in, and to reduce the chance of loss. Replaceable tip may be purchased separately if the thread strips. Weight 280g
Raumer M8 Bolt Driver 
£31.80

Raumer M8 Bolt Driver

M8 Raumer Stroker, driver for M8 bolts. Padded, protective and comfortable tool for hand driving the 8mm self drill anchor. Durable but soft grip handle to facilitate turning the driver while placing the bolt. Also the rubber flange protects the hand from miss- strikes! Replaceable tip may be purchased separately if the thread strips. Weight 280g
Raumer Action hammer 
£45.00

Raumer Action hammer

Well made, effective hammer traditionally used in placing M8 and similar bolts. Wrist loop and lanyard hole to prevent dropping, rubber high - grip handle for comfort and shock absorption, plus a decent socket in the end to allow plate hanger 8mm bolts to be screwed in. Has a reasonably heavy head, so can work for light rock demolition.
Petzl Large Sky Hook 
£15.00

Petzl Large Sky Hook

A very useful part of any bolting kit, as it allows hands-free positioning while placing bolts, expecially for off-line rebelays and deviations. Steel, with nylon - dyneema sling, weight 50g. It takes body weight plus, but isn't for rigging off! It may be used in progression while aid climbing, of course, if one is brave or impatient...
Raumer Etrier Step 
£4.20

Raumer Etrier Step

Raumer Etrier Step. Light, solid steps that can be assembled with 6mm cord (sold separately)to create etrier steps for aid climbing and bolting. Combines well with the Raumer Stick Up to create an effective lightweight scaling system. Should last a caving career - if you don't leave it in a wet plastic bag for months on end, that is - it's tough, not magical!
Five Step Etrier 
£33.60

Five Step Etrier

A set of five of the Raumer etrier steps, provided with four metres of pure Dyneema to make a very compact, light, and strong aid to artificial ascents. Often bought in pairs but presented singly here.
Petzl Connect Adjust 
£34.80

Petzl Connect Adjust

A lanyard with a speedy-length-adjust mechanism. It can adjust smoothly from 15cm to 95cm. This is a great advantage in aid climbing off bolts where height gain with each upwards movement is maximised, as there is little loss. Best used with smaller screwgate karabiners such as the CT Nimble. Note that the Connect Adjust is a positioning device and not an energy absorber, and therefore should not be a link in the safety chain if greater than Factor 1 falls are anticipated.
Raumer Stick Up 
£32.40

Raumer Stick Up

Alloy bar used with etriers (sold separately)to facilitate aid climbing. It allows a significant amount of extra progress to be made with each bolt placed, but is small and light enough to transport easily through a cave. Works up to the vertical, not for steeply overhanging ground. Requires two oval karabiners to fit the clipping in points. Currently out of stock, but coming in with next Raumer order.
Alp Design Rigging Bandolier 
£15.00

Alp Design Rigging Bandolier

Padded and adjustable bandolier for carrying rigging equipment, tackle bags (when rigging traverses), climbing kit and drills. Very strongly built and well padded for coping with heavy loads, this bandolier is equally suited for expedition caving and multi - pitch climbing. Buckle adjustment allows it to be used most sizes of people.
