LightThese 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.

Fast and Light!Very compact and light aider. Great for a pitch or two on a mostly free route. Wouldnt recommend for long sustained aid because your feet will start to ache.
