3. Gear Considerations

In this video we look at the gear we often take on multi-pitch, traditional route. Every climb is unique and may require more or less gear depending on the weather, number of pitches, and length of the approach hike. Below is an example checklist for a 3-pitch route in the Sierra Nevada, expecting the excellent weather of those late-summer months.

Helmet
Harness
Climbing shoes
Chalk bag
Rope
Cordelette
6-10 Shoulder length slings (or “alpine draws)
1-2 Double length slings
2-6 Quickdraws
Rack (Cams & Stoppers/Nuts)
Gear Sling
“Nut” tool (or cleaning tool)
Mini backpack
Small Lighter
Duck Tape
Head Lamp
First Aid kit
Layer(s)
Snacks
Water (collapsible bottle or hydration bladder is great)
