Required Equipment

Required Equipment

  • 17 feet of 1 inch webbing
  • Harness.  When it comes to the weekend FT, bring your comfiest one, if you own more than one.  You'll get to free-hang in it for 20 minutes straight.
  • Belay device & belay gloves
  • A bunch of lockers, like 5 or 6.  At least 3 of them should be wide enough for munter-hitches.
  • At least 5 regular carabiners
  • A few runners, perhaps 2 singles and 2 doubles.
  • cordelette (very important.)  Better yet, bring two cordelettes if you can.
  • Prusiks:  both a hero loop or two, and your texas-prusik set from glacier travel.
  • Pulley, your prusik-minding one from basic crevasse rescue.  (This one is the best with it's wide "shoulders.")  If you happen to own a 2nd pulley, bring that too, it'll help.
  • Helmets are optional for my evening Rescue Methods practices, but essential at the weekend FT outside.  We'll stick to inside the basement and won't really be climbing, so they're not required, but you're always welcome to wear one anyway if you'd like.
