Simple Climbing Gear Care

A question often asked on climbing courses is how to look after your gear. It's pretty straightforward. Any gear, (ropes/slings/hardware/harness) that is muddy, gritty or has been on sea cliffs gets rinsed well in fresh water; then hung to air dry out of direct sunlight.

Check ropes/slings/harness for abrasion. Check hardware for flaking, fracturing, gate stiffness or anything else obvious. Then hang somewhere dry, air temperature and out of sunlight.
