Realize the reality of getting up your route with the RURP.
Black Diamond's RURP micro pin climbing tool has stood the test of time. The thin-crack Realized Ultimate Reality Piton has been around for more than 50 years. When all else fails on dicey aid, the RURP's keen ability to hold in incipient cracks opens up otherwise unclimbable lines due to its dual-tapered blade. The RURP is cut from 4130 CrMo steel and comes with a wired cable for durability. -Vendor

These should stand for "Realized Ultimate Rectal Puckering" as that is how you feel when you bash one in. But time and time again they hold. As amazing as it is that weighting a postage stamp is possible, what is more amazing is how durable they are. You can bash the hell out of them (and you will) and when cleaned they still look pretty good. A worthy addition to any big wall rack.

Few joys can match a perfect rurp placement. I'm constantly amazed that these things actually hold, but hold they do.
