A carabiner is a climber’s best friend. It is used to belay, to attach the rope, to tie-in, to abseil, etc.


A quickdraw (or runner) consists of 2 non-locking carabiners generally connected by a short, pre-sewn loop of webbing.


It is the vital link between your body, the rope, the quickdraws, and finally the cliff.


Although helmets are not yet obligatory for rock climbs they are strongly recommended.
