Topic - Assembling a climbing rack

moonchip - on 25 Aug 2013
OK, hopefully this wont open too many cans of worms :) .....

I'm getting back into climbing which will be a mix about 50% walls & 50% trad, the latter being in Chew Valley & around Saddleworth where I live .... a 30 min walk from my back door to Wimberry Rocks

I've got a new harness, 'master' carabiner & belay device, soon to have some rope - and I've got a new pair of climbing shoes

Yes, I know i need a helmet !

As far as the rack goes, if you were starting out with the benefit of your experience, what sequence of kit would you buy (ie slings, nuts, rocks, cams, etc..) which sizes would you get and how many quickdraws

I'm probrably going to go with nylon for slings over dyneema as I favour their stretch capabilities, but will stand corrected.

Any advice greatly appreciated

have a great Bank Holiday :)
