My absolute favorite way for climbing up into my tree stand is with the Lone Wolf Climbing Sticks. If you are still clueless about how good these sticks really are then you have been missing out! Made for mobility, I can attach these sticks to any of my Lone Wolf Stands and hardly feel them on my back.
They are incredibly light, weighing in at just a little over 2lbs per each stick. I also never feel more safe climbing a tree than with these sticks. The slip cam makes it super easy for wrapping the strap around the tree then giving a gentle tug and you are all set to go it really is that easy. They may be pricey but you do get what you pay for when it comes to equipment like this!
