Going to try the suffering of aid climbing to see if it is for me. Plan is to get on Passport to Insanity and Ozymandias in late feb...

Wanted:
2x ascenders
2x daisys
2x aiders (prefer ladder style)
fifi hook
belay seat

I am 193cm tall.

It seems like quite a lot of people aid one or both of these routes and not much else? So surely there is a bunch of aid gear sitting in people's gear rooms collecting dust?

Liberate your aid assets and turn them into cash today!

115 cm red daisy available here.

If you can't get a fifi, don't fret, as they are easily improvised/made by taping open the gate of a krab, or if you want a captive eye one, then buy a D shackle from cheap hardware and cut off about 1/3 portion of it containing the threaded eyelet, so that it becomes a hook!

Belay seats are easily also improvised from a suitable piece of wood drilled and a couple of slings fitted.

Although ascenders and aiders can be improvised, it is usually more efficient to go with any of the manufactured items.
