This system allows you to hang and climb to your treestand safely and silently from the ground, eliminating any unnecessary maneuvering and climbing. Built with our Rock Solid? design in mind, these all steel welded sticks are held secure to the tree with five one-inch Cam-Buckle straps, while the five sleeved sections with large alternating angled steps help you easily climb the 20' to your stand in no time. With an overall weight of only 20 pounds, this system holds a weight rating of 300 pounds. Note: This climbing system is designed for use as a fully assembled ladder with the bottom section in direct contact with the ground at all times!
