Long awaited by many and now finally available in Europe.
The akimbo by rock exotica is an absolutely innovative, versatile and unique rope device for the climbing arborist. It can be used on both stationary and moving rope systems and enables simple, efficient ascent, descent and positioning. The akimbo can be opened easily and quickly, giving you the opportunity to attach and remove it at any position on the rope.
Thanks to the fine adjustment options, the friction generated can be easily adapted to different ropes, the natural wear and preferences of the climber - and all this without tools or dismantling of components.
The akimbo by rock exotica is the long-awaited light and slim rope device approved in Europe, especially for SRT climbing.
