Required Equipment

Gear you'd take on a multi pitch rock climb:

  • Guide Mode capable belay device (such as the Black Diamond ATC Guide or Petzl Reverso)
  • At least two cordelettes 
  • A couple alpine draws (both single length and double length)
  • Rappel backup 
  • At least 4 lockers plus one larger locker. More definitely won’t hurt!
  • Any extra carabiners you need for keeping your gear organized on your harness. If you drop something, it's gone and you will have to puzzle things out without it!

  • Your preferred rappel extension method
  • Helmet
  • Rescue loop or autoblock
  • A prusik loop or two
