My Gear

This year I’ve slowly put together a gear rack for trad and sport. There are many ways of putting together a rack, secondhand, cheap from Ebay or wade right in and splash out. Try and read reviews of the gear you are buying, buy from trusted sources and remember that gear bought secondhand, you don’t know where it’s been- picked up from a crag, stuck in a wall for two months, fallen on, dropped or perfectly safe.

Sports Direct sell DMM gear at a fantastic price, way less than any of the main climbing shops. http://www.sportsdirect.com/dmm Run a google search for ‘Sports Direct Voucher Codes’ and you will always find another 10-20% off

My Gear:

DMM- Shorty Rope 30m

DMM- Wall nuts 1-11

DMM Dragon Camms 00 – 3

DMM Slings 2m / 60cm

DMM Spectre Quickdraws (10)

Grivel Master Belay ATC and matching Locking Crab

DMM Aero Locking Carabiners

DMM BOA Carabiner (HMS Style)

Black Diamond ‘Aspect’ Harness (Women’s Medium, don’t be afraid of trying on both men’s and women’s harnesses, buy the right one for your body type!!)

La Sportiva Miura Shoes- great for steep stuff, horrible to walk in. I’m just breaking these in

Scarpa Force- My first proper shoes, still useful for trad but totally wrecked

Metolius Chalk bag- bright orange

Coleman Head Torch (always take a headtorch if climbing in the evening)
