permanent Quickdraws?

Post by bimbobway » Thu Apr 11, 2019 9:02 pm

I'm pretty new to climbing, I have been watching a lot of videos of climbing in Red River and plan visiting this summer. In the videos I have seen it appears as all the routes have quickdraws installed permanently? None of the climbers are clipping in as they climb. How common is this in the area? I plan on buying plenty to bring with me regardless but just curious either way

Depends on how hard you're climbing / which region you'll be climbing in. You should definitely plan on placing/cleaning your own draws during your trip.

Don't listen to lilgilby, total chuffer. Once witnessed him get on another person's shoulders to stick clip a couple weeks back. Most of us just solo around these parts.
