How to Buy Rock Climbing Protection

Traditional climbing (trad climbing) relies on passive and active protection that can be removed from the rock after the climb. Passive protection consists of wedge shaped bolts, pieces of aluminum or brass attached to wire or webbing sling. Active protection involves moving parts, the most common example being the spring-loaded camming device (SLCD).

Active
The most common form of active rock protection is the spring-loaded camming device, which climbers simply refer to as a cam. Cams feature three or four aluminum lobes that retract when a spring-loaded trigger is pulled. The device can then be slid into a crack and the lobes expand to fit the rock when the trigger is released. Shop Active Protection

Passive rock pro includes stoppers, nuts, hexes, and tri-camsÑall of which are designed for use in specific situations and certain types of rock. Shop Passive Protection
