Climbing Protection is a variety of gear and devices used to reduce risk and protect climbers while rock climbing or alpine climbing. A trad climbing rack employs a range of passive and active gear, including active camming devices such as Wild Country Friends, Black Diamond Camalots, Totem Cams, and passive gear like nuts, stoppers, hexes and tricam sets. You can find these in a variety of shapes and sizes to keep you secured in a range of rock placements in cracks, slits, grooves, pin scars and pods. We also have trad climbing basics such as climbing slings and runners, nut tools with a leash, crack gloves, tape, and lightweight carabiner sets to build your trad rack.
