I've done some research Ross and I suggest

a) never buy somebody's used harness when it really is your life depending on it
b) they only cost about $60 at the ceiling for entry level harnesses, check out MEC,

Adjustable


Fixed


You pay more for fixed (ionno why?) than for an adjustable harness but personally I think adjustable is important (expecially if 'the package' is sensitive on that particluar day) Ask the sales dude.

yeah, well, i know. :)

i've already decided on the Black Diamond Momentum Adjustable. i was just trying the hail mary for the person who bought a harness then went climbing and realized that they are afraid of heights or something.

where do you climb rob?

I've climbed a bunch of times, only indoor so far, most recently my first time @ Toronto Climbing Academy, waiting for my tax heque then I'm going ot buy shoes and a harness cos (id I do say so myself) I'm good for a newb. Maybe it's the heigh thing :p

I've been into climbing since I was a lil monkey climbing the tree in from of my house :)

U have a climbing partner yet?? Looking ot check out Rattlesnake point sometime this year.. somebody else mentioned they climb on the board... hmmm...

well, i've only done it a couple of times but i'm totally falling in love with the sport, i just need to build up my endurance. i've only gone with my g/f to rock oasis at on bathurst south of king

you totally have the body type for it, tall and thin, whereas i have to overcome the inertia of my beer belly with every vertical move i make. :(

i know quantumdj (dave) also climbs but he is in hamilton./

I ICQ'd you, I'll totally climb with you man :) I've been in love with the sport forever :)

I know what you mean by the endurance part, I'll lend you a book I read, it's far more advanced than you or I need at the moment but I read it from cover to cover and learned a lot.

Would that be John Long's "How to Rock Climb"?
I have it too. Very comprehensive.

Ross, I just bought a brand new big wall harness (It's huge and has a fleece lining), and I still have my Bluewater Lynx sitting around. I bought it 4 years ago, but it hasnt seen much use.

I dont think I should sell it though. You should never buy used harnesses. Plus I didnt really like that harness anyway. A new one is not expensive at all. There are some pretty nice ones at really good prices at Gravity, if you want to come for a climb with me and check them out just send me a pm.

I'll be at rattlesnake a bit this summer, too. Nothing special, though, just some top rope stuff. I think i'll be climbing in Ancaster, too.


Cheers,
Dave
