WesSpur's Entry-level Rope Climbing Kit
We've put this kit together to be the best starting kit on the market. This is our recommended kit for entry-level climbers who have a limited budget but nonetheless want quality equipment.
For 2016, we've upgraded the rope in this kit to Samson Arbor-Plex, and switched out the split tail system for an eye and eye prusik (the same climbing system as the Deluxe kit.) These changes make ascension and canopy movement smoother, and offer more versatility in how you use your kit. A Hawkeye rope flipline is included to aid in work positioning. The split-D harness is durable and comfortable, featuring a wide, padded back and a leather-lined sit sling.
This kit includes the Tree Climbers Companion, an essential guide to knots, techniques, safety, and gear for beginning climbers. It also comes with a burly, military-style duffle bag to hold all your equipment, and built-in savings.
Your kit will contain:
- Wide-back harness
- 150' Arbor-Plex rope
- 9mm RIT Prusik
- 2 RockO carabiners
- SMC micro pulley
- 164' Excel throw line
- 10 and 12 oz weights
- Throw line pouch
- 12' Flipline (16-strand Rope)
- US Standard adjuster
- 1 Pirate carabiner
- Tree Climber's Companion
- Canvas gear Bag

“This kit is great for us beginners. Within an hour we were off the ground enjoying our new hobby.”

“We ordered this kit for some additional tree work we were doing on our property and quite frankly we should have bought it sooner. After spending dollars elsewhere for equipment that really wasn't suited for the job we bought this one...WOW! It really is a complete tree kit all you need is your PPE and a saw! The best thing was that if an item in the kit needs to be upgraded just call WesSpur before you order and they will swap it out for you - no problem. Have to agree with the first review for simplicity and price this is quite a bargain.”

“While I have not purchased this kit yet, I have looked up each contained item separately. I've done the math, and this kit is 0, compared to 9 for each of the contents separately. That's a 9 savings! This kit is definitely a good deal! ”
