This gear list is complied for students of our Technical Rope Work courses (TR1-5).   The gear in the “Primary” list are items that will be used by students during the courses.   While students are not required to bring their own personal gear (they may borrow needed items), this list is provided as courtesy to students interested in obtaining their own gear.   The “recommended” list are for students who are interested in acquiring gear as they pursue activities involving rope work.   Personal preference will always determine options that are most suitable for the individual.
