Thanks Petzl for the great ascenders!  I also like the Black Diamond N-Force but they're a little more effort to slide up ropes...

At least in southern California– I had to seek shade to be comfortable this afternoon hauling and aid climbing around here…..DSCN1817

I especially recommend the Petzl MicroTraxion combo hauling device, the CMI RP-101 pulley, and the Tibloc by Petzl if you want to do 3:1 haul setups as shown here- instead of space hauling if the distances are less than ~ 50 feet.
Space hauling really looks good if you’re bringing something up from farther than that.
