Guides and Mountaineering instructors wanted a simple solution to help transfer their knowledge and experience to their clients, simplify systems, and take out confusion at belays. With our small batch, in-house production we were able to provide that solution. We have taken our best loved Shadow, Boa, and Oval biners and colour coded them. Red, Blue, and Green: they sound different – even in a wild mountain environment, and they look different – even in poor light. Not only suited to the mountain professionals, climbers of all abilities wanting easy identification will benefit. This is the ‘Big Daddy’ of lockers – the ultimate rigging biner and one which is super strong and super tough. It is large enough to accommodate several knots and has a very wide gate opening – just what you need in a rigging situation. All of which makes it a great centre use biner, but the story doesn’t end there. Despite its name, the Big Boa is surprisingly light; by giving it an I-Beam construction we’ve reduced the overall weight by almost 25%. Add in the fact that it is easy to handle in gloves and the appeal to winter climbers is obvious. Features
