Mts Topcam 7 3 [WORK] Crack 4 23


Roping refers to the act of guiding a cam into its place, usually by means of a sling. The purpose of roping a cam is to extend the cam into the crack (or prevent it from being able to leave the crack), just as a cam will move out of its place if it is not extended. Placing a cam early in the pitch, as is usually done, is often ineffective, as a cam with good placement tends to sit in its place even in a fall.

Camming refers to the act of moving a camstem into the middle of the crack where the lobes protect the tip of the cam. While the lobes only offer protection from overhanging edges, occasionally a cam will not be able to be placed in this position due to a barrier such as a bulge or jug at the tip of the crack. This situation is considered a cam failure, and the climber is left at the mercy of the overhanging edges. In cases like this, use an offset cam, which offers the protection of a two piece cam while still allowing for a shorter sling. The greater the length of your sling is, the more difficult it is to roping your cams in to protect your middle. Go as short as you need to go to protect the middle piece of the climb, but keep in mind that if you plan on extending the cam down to the base of the hold, the length of your sling must be extended a little further, as there is a limit to how far the climber can swing his or her body.

Alpine rock climbing is very similar to free climbing, the only difference is that the gear is placed on the mountain instead of in the crack. The purpose of placing protection is the same, as is the technique, so when learning alpine rock climbing, the thing to remember is that the placement of protection is done in a way to protect yourself, not the rock. Another helpful thing to remember when placing protection is to place two pieces on your harness on the higher pieces, one to the front, and one to the back, this will keep the rope from getting caught on the smaller cams and help get the rope out of the way if something goes wrong. As with free climbing, there are a variety of cams and camming devices that can be used in order to protect the rock, but the most common ones will be discussed here. As with free climbing, we will start with the larger cams and then move to the smaller, which are often considered to be the fastest. 3d9ccd7d82
