Aiders taken to the next level.
The Metolius Easy Aider uses a unique adjustment system to help you size them precisely for aiding a pitch or jugging behind your partner. The foot loops can be tightened to your shoes with a simple nylon strap, so you don't have to worry about your feet popping out over and over while you're cleaning 200 feet of pins. Metolius used a wide foot loop to provide extra comfort—something you'll really appreciate after five days on a grade VI nail-up.

These are the best set up for a dedicated follower. Simply adjust to the length of your liking, and tighten the foot strap and you're off to the jumaring races. I recently used these on an ascent of the Nose, and I can honestly say it would've been harder without these things. The "set it and forget it" use is the best! I would NOT recommend these for direct aid climbing however. There are much better options out there for aid ladders such as BD Etriers or Metolius aid ladders.
