Urban Climber Editor’s Choice: PETZL XION, TIKKA XP2 CORE & GRIGRI 2

XION 10.1 ROPE
“This rope is great because I can lead my chosen routes without feeling like I’m tied into a bulky metal chain, and then toprope the harder stuff without feeling like I’m tied into a piece of dental floss.”

TIKKA XP2 CORE HEADLAMP
“Petzl says the Core adapter will last the equivalent of 900 AAA batteries ($2.59 for a two-pack, so $2.59 x 450 = $1,650.50). In other words, this $110 dollar light saves you money in the long run, and keeps toxic batteries out of the landfill.”

GRIGRI 2
“I’ve always been a Grigri user, so when Petzl dropped the new and improved second edition, I could not wait to get my hands on it. It costs the same as the old Grigri (which is no longer in production) and operates noticeably better. I call that a win-win.”
