Climbing Gear Checklist:
Helmet (It is uncommon for people in Potrero to go without a helmet, as there is potential for rockfall.)
A Headlamp and extra batteries
4 HMS Locking Carabiners, like the Petzl Attache
12-14 Quickdraws, or 24 if you plan to link pitches together. A few alpine style draws are handy to reduce rope drag. My favorites lightweight draws are the Wild Country Helium’s and my favorite all around draw is the Black Diamond Livewire
70M dynamic rope, bi-pattern or with a middle marker. The Sterling 9.5mm Helix Evolution works well.
Harness (Suitable for comfort at hanging belays) My favorite for comfort is the Misty Mountain Cadilac.
Comfortable pair of climbing shoes, and another pair if you have them for backup. The stone is really sharp so it can wear out shoes quick. Check out the Five Ten Mocasym or Anasazi’s for all day comfort.
Small first aid kit to carry with you on climbs
A Prussik or Sterling Hollow Block
Small 16-20 liter summit pack
A sports watch
Digital Camera with a strap to clip to your harness
A camping stove (Many Campgrounds and Casitas have stoves available for you to use)
A 3 Season Tent
Sleeping bag/pad suitable for below freezing temperatures.
Synthetic Pants like the Prana Stretch Zion’s
Synthetic or smartwool long sleeve shirt
A softshell jacket
A breathable rain jacket
