The Akimbo – An Innovative Mid-Line Attachable Climbing Tool


The Rock Exotica Akimbo is a versatile mid-line attachable friction device that can be removed or installed on the rope in seconds, without detaching from the harness. Suitable for both SRT and DRT climbing methods, the Akimbo allows climbers to smoothly ascend and descend, or position within the canopy.

This lightweight and compact device can accommodate a range of approved ropes from 11.5 – 13mm (see Downloads below). Friction can be easily adjusted to accommodate for variations in climber weight, changes to the environment, or to adjust for natural wear of the contact surfaces.

Further features of the Rock Exotica Akimbo include:

  • Ascend, descend and position in the canopy without changing equipment.
  • Friction adjusts easily without tools
  • Suitable for both SRT and DRT climbing methods
  • SRT chest attachment wire gate provides quick connect/disconnect for cord or small carabiner
  • Lightweight and compact
  • Compatible with 11.5 – 13mm approved ropes (see downloads)
Why we like the Akimbo

It’s shiny, it’s blue, it’s from Rock! Plus, you can attach mid-line and adjust the friction. Need, we say more.

Please only use a rope approved for use with the Akimbo by Rock Exotica. The full list can be downloaded below. Your rope selection will determine the Working Load Limit of the Akimbo.
