Your tie-in point and on-person gear organizing area, aharness是第一件装备,你会买之一。十几大品牌做线束,它们的价格范围从约$ 40至超过$ 200

  • 传统的“硬壳”头盔(又名悬挂头盔;图)将持续较长时间,并采取虐待,但他们往往比重量更轻,基于泡沫的风格不太舒服。

Attached to your harness with a locking carabiner, a belay device is used to control the rope. This includes while belaying a climber as well as for rappels off the top of the climb. There are many options and styles (see afull spread of choices here), but all accomplish the same task of keeping the rope — and the climber connected to it — safe and in control.

  • For your first belay device, many climbers choose aBlack Diamond ATC。It’s affordable at less than $20, and it’s simple to use. Learn the technique of belaying with this “tube-style” device as a bedrock skill.
  • 这些扎绳技能将转化为使用其他设备,如流行Petzl的GRIGRI,which gives assisted braking (but is not as easily used for rappelling).
  • You’ll need a locking carabiner to attach your belay device. There are dozens of models available. Choose one with an easy-to-use locking mechanism and wide gate opening. ThePetzl的武官3D螺丝锁是一个受欢迎的选择。
