    A climbing pulley is a special piece of equipment used in a variety of situations. An arborist pulley attaches to a tree and allows the worker to climb up the tree without damaging it. In addition, an arborist pulley can be used to lower branches or other objects from the tree. A rock climbing pulley is typically used for hauling gear. It can also protect a lead climber from being pulled from a wall if a climber behind them falls during a big wall climb. Finally, a climber pulley is an essential piece of gear for solo climbing, during which a climber must self-belay.


    Selecting the Best Climbing Pulley for Your Needs

    A climbing pulley is an essential piece of gear for any climber, whether you've just started a tree trimming business or you're a seasoned rock climber. Here are a few things to consider when selecting a climber pulley.

    First, consider the type of climbing you'll be doing most often. If you're primarily a sport climber, you'll want a lighter pulley that's easy to carry on your harness. Durability is key for trad and big wall climbers, so look for a pulley made from tough materials that can accommodate a thicker climbing rope.

    Next, think about the features that are important to you. Some prefer a climber pulley with an integrated locking device, while others find this unnecessary weight. If you frequently climb in wet or icy conditions, look for a pulley with sealed bearings to keep out moisture and dirt. You can also purchase a single pulley or double pulley, depending on the weight of your loads. Regardless of which size climber pulley you choose, you’ll need a carabiner to use it properly. 

    Finally, don't forget to factor in your budget. A rock climbing pulley can range from $20 to $200, so it's important to find one that fits your needs without breaking the bank. At Armbury, we’re dedicated to providing affordable yet durable pulleys to help you achieve the task at hand.
