– the gully escalator

Just like crack climbing, ‘couloiring’ is much about the aesthetics of clean and defined natural lines.

It’s about accessing the inaccessible in a pure way.

It is an end in itself.

You climb a line.

You ski that line.

Nothing else.

If there was a tool designed for exactly this ONE PURPOSE –

– float on demand

Versatility first – our BaaS option (buoyancy as a service)

Your project requires crampons. Sure thing.

Will there be exhausting snowy sections? Maybe.

Do I carry anything heavy for the maybe-scenario? No way.

 Calculus of probability is easy when the ‘weighting factor’ is this insignificant.


Check out this tutorial for how to use the Saucer with Crampons.
