Rock exotica Omni pulleys

This piece of gear has to be one of the best examples of cross-mojonation since honey-butter;

I reckon it could be a good bit of kit if you use a 2:1 for hauling, apart from that I reckon it's a bit specialized. It also looks nice in orange;)

Anyone have one? Played with one? Want to sell one;)

I have one that I have bolted to the bottom of my ascender, that I use combined with a grigri for bolting. Allows super easy changover from going up to down. Really nice bit of gear. I bough mine from Lee Cujes - Upskill Climbing.

Cool bit of kit Mike.

RE make some awesomely strong lightweight pulleys.

The Rock Exotica pullies are really nice, along with a lot of their other stuff.


Most over-engineered bosun's chair ever. The pole is a flute section from an Aztec Vortex with a 720 rigging plate at each end,, hanging from 2 double-sheave omni-blocks on the dual track-line. Tie-ins are 2 Aztek edge-kits.


Omni-blocks and an Aztek edge-kit using its set-of-fours side on the A-Frame at one end of the dual-track line.

Miguel75 can start saving now :)

M9 will probably post now about how he did it with improvised bottle tops back in the day, and so implying that the modern generation of climbers are lightweight spurts by comparison, unless of course that due to their insatiable gearlust, they end up overloaded.
He is probably right.

I don't look at that photo and see cunning 3D manoeuvrability of a stretchered patient, I see a group of 50yr old gear-junkies spending 3hrs on the set up and pull down, and a further 3hrs yammering away about the pros and cons of every possible rigging permutation..............can't really imagine a more tedious way to spend a sunny Saturday!

... and so are you, except back in the day we didn't use lighweight pulleys due they were all made of steel and usually ratted off industrial applications!

They spent some time causing catastrophic failures of the main line with a knife and an axe. Doesn't sound that boring actually...

Cicada would have been stoked if he had been given the chance to attend that exercise, as it sounds a definite notch up from the Stradbroke affair.

We repeatedly rehearsed minimalist strategies for rescuing ODH.

they are a nice piece of kit, i played with the single and the double version @ 5th point in Sydney on a course, too heavy for a climbing application though
