Gear Review

A wonderful step in the gear sling evolution

I've climbed for quite some time using a traditional gear sling that was really nothing more than a piece of webbing left over from the eighties (you know, electric pink and purple only in vogue in the Verdon Gorge these days). I bought this Metolious sling last season and have been thanking myself ever since. Its fleece padding that lines the main contact points (along the shoulder) is so comfortable (adjustable too) and the sewn plastic coated gear loops are a blessing when I'm reaching for a nut or cam in a pinch...this sling lends itself so well to organization, I've stopped dropping pro on my partner’s head!
