/ Needing abit of climbing advice..
this last week i have been debating about trying outdoor rope climbing, but of course ill be climbing in groups, till i get my confidence, obviously ill need a harness and a helmet, no doubt about that, but the advice im needing is...
for a first time rope climber, so i need a certain kind of harness, or can you use any kind of harness etc, and how do you know the harness is the right one for you, and are harness' a one size item, for e.g will every harness fit you etc?
Hope you all understand where im coming through
Have a look at the link above ( scroll down for specific info re: womens ) its worth reading all of it though .
at the top right of the forums page you should see a search function ( button ) these sorts of questions come up quite often so always worth a quick look there initially . Happy climbing .
A Harness is a harness there are various types for different climbing styles. Light weight alpine ones to more traditional ones. You will need to try one on as they do come in different sizes. Basics like these are fine
Or go for something a little more sophisticated like this
Get advice but don't waste money if you are not oing to use it. Saying that I have started climbing with a guy who has got me back into trad so my harness has been dusted down
thanks alot for your advice, ill take a look at that link, and thanks for filling me in with the search option, im new to the forum so i didnt realise you could do that, thanks alot!.
Its good your getting back into it!
To the Mods. Is there any chance we can start doing some sort of IP / MAC address search before people now register here. Just to eliminate the clones?
