Clipstick

  • Pongoose is a unusually-named brand making clipsticks - extendable poles which enable you to clip a quickdraw into a bolt when sport climbing. Traditionally, this was virtually all they could do, but thanks to clever engineering, Pongoose have created a product which can also remove the quickdraw from the bolt, and have made it easier to clip the rope through a quickdraw. When sport climbing (a mostly 'safe' activity), there's no point risking a broken ankle in order to clip a high first bolt; you can also save lots of energy when 'working' a route (practicing it before a redpoint), by having the rope clipped above you, avoiding numerous falls as you try hard sections. Pongoose's '3-in-1' clipsticks are reviewed by After the Send.
