New Beta Stick Clipstick is an very compact clipping stick that extends to 12ft. Perfect for fitting into a tight luggage allowance on short-haul flights to sport climbing destinations.
Also excellent as an emergency aid on big walls, either for by-passing awkward sections or to help retreat traverses and rooves.
This custom built "avalance probe" pole doesn't rely on twisting to lock the sections together, so there are no moving parts to fail. The only potential downside is that it's length can't be adjusted.
