Designed by NZ climber Dale Thomas, 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.
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.
