Topic - Are 4 gear loops enough?

Barney_GT - on 12 Jun 2013
Hi all,

I'm currently looking at getting an all round harness for trad and winter climbing (something i want to get into this winter having never done it before), and maybe mixed climbing after that. After some sifting through reviews and deals, the Petzl Corax seems like a solid choice. The question I have is, do you think 4 gear loops is enough? Does anyone that climbs ice/mixed find that they would prefer some extra loops on their harness? My thinking is that, not being the most flexible 6'4 bloke, extra gear loops at the back would just be harder to access than something on a sling over the shoulder. But ehn is this doable with a pack on?

Thanks for any advice you have!
