Positioning Your Climbing Equipment Rack
When climbing chimneys or large off-width cracks make sure to put the rack on the outside. It sounds obvious, but many people have a preferred side. Keeping the rack on the outside makes for easier access and it is less likely to snag on the inside of the crack.
Know Your Rack
When on the sharp end of the rope, you want to be prepared and not waste time trying to find a particular piece of gear. Racking climbing gear requires serious organization. Everyone does it differently, so take some time to try a few different options. Pick a system that works for you and use every time.
