Alpine Aiders is rated out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ben from Light These are great for those light and fast walls. If you are mostly free climbing with a couple pitches of aid or spotty sections of aid then these are great. Just used these on The Nose in a day and they worked great. If you are going to be climbing pitch after pitch of aid then go with something a little heavier and thicker under foot to save your feet from getting destroyed.
