With a humble start in 1978 in Utah amongst the local ski resorts and canyons, Rock Exotica and its founder Rock Thompson have been providing the world of mountaineering, rigging, rescue, arboriculture and general climbing innovative, high-quality products since the very beginning. Having partnered with major manufacturers to produce carabiners and other climbing staples in the past, the company’s investment in state-of-the-art processes and milling equipment has given them the experience, knowledge and reputation necessary to introduce products like the Akimbo. With a distinct look and intuitive functionality, the Akimbo is perfect for both SRS and MRS climbing, opens easily to remove or install ropes mid-line in seconds, and then compresses back down into a compact form, keeping it moving and out of the way while on the rope and making it easy to transport and store off the rope. Unlike closed loop attachments, the Akimbo features a wire gate to allow the climber to use smaller carabiners to connect to the SRS attachment point, or to the loop of a cord. Rock Exotica recommends caution when making a choice of rope to be used with the device, as it can influence the maximum working load. Please refer to the previously linked PDF for more details.
