yeah, just a 12 ft. 2 pc. painters pole with a screw on squid device on the end. Covered in climbing stickers. Makes more of a great hiking pole for the knees on the downhill trails encountered heading to the crags. No pics of it in use though...are we looking for the most artistic or creative stick in this posting??

Are you Chicken, or fishy?

no pics of me using it, although I could care less if someone saw me do so!

I have this:supercliprescue.com/superclip.aspx much better than the trango squid which is fragile, yet can still unclip biners if you leave the rope in it.

I put it on a strong-long painters pole from the hardware store, cost $40, but I've had it for over 3 years with zero issues.

The pole they sell on the link above is garbage, my friends have gone through a couple a season, until they buy the slightly more expensive painters pole.

A friend told me it's not something to be proud of...

But mine is a Home Depot variety:

Spring Clamp + MR. Long Arm Painter Pole clamped together with a pipe clamp. Works very well with Spirit draws.

Just in case the two big belay anchors aren't obvious enough for you, here is where to find the belay station.

+1. I've found that a spring clamp and spirit or BD biner fit together perfectly. I duct taped over the hose clamps to keep the sharp edges safe.

This setup is awesome. You'd think that superclip accessory would be on sale at every climbing department, works great. They need better sales/marketing.

The proper term for ascending a route via stick-clipping is Fraiding, Got that from Mabe. Get it? Free/aid; afraid.
I know of someone who mastered placing nuts with a stick clip too.

I use a 3 piece 12' lightbulb changer with a clamp on the end, fastened with hose clamps. Duct tape on the hose clamps is good beta and makes it less bitey. I got the idea from a friend, who I also learned the stick clip fu from. He customized his with a piece of wooden dowel in the last extension of the pole, giving him 16' of sport wanking pleasure. It also doubles a walking stick, and with the clamp on the end works great as a guide book holder too.

I use a stick. I break off the end to make a small fork. I use a twig to hold the biner gate open.

+1 except for the not-proud part. I love my stick-clip.

Spring Clip + Mr. Long Arm

This one, 3 parts, not two (hard to find at Home Depot); 6ft to 18ft:
www.midlandhardware.com/887114.html

They make an 8ft that extends to 24, but that is too long. I like this 6 footer, fits into my car just fine.

Climbing at the Belvedere crag near Nago with a great view of the northern end of Lake Garda and the town of Torbole sul Garda below. June 2013.

Best setup money can buy, IMO:

  • Superclip - Super simple (unlike the squid), can easily clip the rope into a hanging draw, can easily unclip draws from bolts.

Or just use any stick and a small rock found at most crags.

Where's the photo of the combination GoPro 3+ with stick clip? You could improve your accuracy by holding the iPhone in one hand with the GoPro app and the stick in the other....

Jason, I was going to buy a squid but looked up a video of the super clip (never heard of one) and like that it is not as breakable(not plastic)so I just ordered one. I am going to put It on my 6-12 foot painters pole I acquired from lowes. Hopefully this new setup will be like going from my go cart (not running) POS stick clip to a Ferrari. Stick clip porn will follow next time I go sport climbing.
