Etrier is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Good I purchased these rather than something like the Yates ladder-style aiders due to price and weight considerations. Based on the picture, I was somewhat concerned they would be a little too light weight and twist and/or wear quickly. When I got them I was pleasantly surprised at how beefy they are yet still pretty lightweight and compact. On the one route I've used them on, I had no issue with twisting and they showed no wear after being drug up a sandstone wall in Zion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Real burly— but still "minimalist" These are my first "full-size" commercially manufactured aiders. Though I have been using the lighter "Alpine Aiders" for the mountains, I had been using home-made etriers (3) on walls since the 80s. I got the 6-steps and use the Alpines as sub-aiders with my new Etriers full-time now.
