Climbing Gear Review no rating given just a review

While you could certainly use the 6mm Aramid slings (60-, 90-, and 120cm lengths) solely for V-threads while ice climbing, I quickly found them to be much more versatile. During testing, the slings quickly revealed themselves to be quite stiff, almost wiry. As such, they are not simply for connecting your rope to pro—they are pro, designed to be threaded through solution pockets and connected huecos, around chockstones, and to sling horns, blocks, and chickenheads or get flossed behind flakes and then cleaned by the second.
