Salt Lake area z-drag loan?

We have a couple of trips in 2 weeks, Jun 2-3, on Split Mountain. Since we were last on the 1 day trip they are now requiring us to carry a z-drag. Does anyone in the Salt Lake area have a z-drag kit they would be willing to loan me for the trip. Yes, I can build one, but time is cramped for me right now and if I don't need to take the time to figure it out that would be good.

I'm in Salt Lake, so any place along the Wasatch Front is within striking distance for me.

Thanks,
DanCan

you literally need a couple locking carabiners, 2 pulleys, some cord, webbing and a rope. it could not be simpler to make.

You can drive anywhere along the Wasatch, but you don't have time to put together a z-drag kit in a city with many outdoor retailers, eh?

Just...wow...

Every boater should learn how to use a z-drag kit and then carry one. I got in my first situation where one was needed after 10 years of boating, and of course the pulleys were stuck in my boat but luckily others in my group were there to help.

Since then I purchased a throw bag that mounts on a waist belt and will always carry my pulleys in my PFD.
