The world famous Beta Stick is a dual function device that comes in handy in both sport climbing and bouldering. To help you get started on sport routes this extendable pole has a specially designed head that will allow you to clip a carabiner into the first or second bolt. Alternatively you can clip a toothbrush (included) into a slot in the head such that you can easily brush down those grimy out-of-reach holds. The Beta Stick range currently includes the Standard, Compact, Long, XL and Technical. The Technical is a new addition to the range, and works in a slightly different way. Whilst all the other Beta Sticks extend in telescopic fashion, the Technical fits together much like a modern tent pole. This allows a pole with a maximum extension of 10ft to fit into an average sized rucksack.
