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.
6-10 Shoulder length slings (or “alpine draws)
1-2 Double length slings
Rack (Cams & Stoppers/Nuts)
“Nut” tool (or cleaning tool)
First Aid kit
Water (collapsible bottle or hydration bladder is great)

Please remember, climbing is inherently dangerous. Climb at your own risk.
