Sport Rope Harness
The sport harness is the most important piece of equipment for sport climbing. There are differences in use and equipment, for example, for alpine touring, alpine climbing or sport climbing, as well as in the versions as a seat harness or complete harness. Sports climbing harnesses are certified according to EN 12277 or UIAA.
For sport and alpine climbing, good hanging comfort and sufficient gear loops on the harness are important; for alpine tours, the harness should not get in the way under the rucksack and should be as light as possible.
A wide adjustment range allows use in summer as well as in winter with appropriate clothing. The seat harness is suitable for most alpine and sport climbing activities, but a full body harness for children has an advantage due to the anatomical differences. Often full body harnesses are used in high ropes courses because of the large range.
