Choosing the Right Carabiners for Your Climb

Before going on any climb, you’ll need to access what kinds of equipment you’ll need for your trip and be able to pack your necessary gear accordingly. There are several different types of carabiners that you can choose from that vary according to size, shape and gate size. Having the right carabiners for your trip and understanding how to use them are very important, as your life may be depending on them. Here are some quick tips for choosing the right carabiners for your climb.

Consider Your Needs

Before choosing any kind of carabiner for your trip, you need to consider what you will be using them for. Different styles of carabiners are designed for different tasks, so you’ll want to ask yourself what kinds of climbing you’ll be doing, as well as the kinds of protections you’ll be clipping into. If you’re just starting out climbing, you may want to get the assistance of an expert or experienced salesman for some help.

Explore Your Options

Once you know what kinds of carabiners will be best for your trip, take a trip to the store and look at some examples of carabiners they have there. Try to get a feel for how they work, how easy they are to clip into, and how smoothly the gates work. If you’re looking at getting some locking carabiners, try to get comfortable with locking and unlocking the gate with one hand. You’ll find that different people prefer different models, so choose some that are easy for you to use and operate smoothly.

Does Weight/Size of the Carabiner Matter?

While it’s always best to climb light, be sure to consider the weight of your carabiner as well, as light weight carabiners aren’t always the way to go. Super light carabiners can result in lower gate-opening strengths and eventually a lower life span for your carabiner. Plus, narrow carabiners can harm your ropes as well. The size of your carabiners should really be based off yoru personal preferences. Larger shaped carabiners can be easier to handle and hold a lot of gear, but take up a lot of space and add extra weight to your gear.

Check Your Carabiners

It’s always important to continually monitor your climbing gear to watch out for cracks, sharp edges, corrosion, and other signs of excessive wear and tear. Even a small hairline crack in your carabiner makes them extremely dangerous and should be trashed. If one of your carabiners has a fall greater than 20 feet, it should also not be used.

Climbing is unique from many other sports in that a fall may severely injure or kill the climber. If you have any questions or are unsure about a piece of equipment, be sure to consult with an expert.

Carlos Sastre Wins the Tour De France

And the Tour de France has a new champion… The professional cyclist Carlos Sastre became last Sunday the third Spaniard to win one of the crown jewels in cycling — the Tour de France. This also became another great sports achievement for his country during the present year.

Sastre managed to win the 95th edition of the most well known cycling race in the world after competing without problems next to his squad during the last phase of the race, which consisted in a 143 kilometers stage in
?tampes.

Sastre’s victory continued the line of triumphs of his countrymen Oscar Pereiro in 2006 and Alberto Contador in the 2007. “It is a dream come true, I waited a lot of time before this,” expressed Sastre. The 33-years-old CSC racer obtained the yellow jersey after winning on Wednesday the 17th stage of the Tour, a section full of ascents in the Alps.

Astana team’s rider, Contador, was not able to participate in this year competition due to the doping scandals involving him as well as his team.

The Australian Cadel Evans ended second in the general classification, 58 seconds behind Sastre. Evans assured the victory on Saturday after resisting his pursuers against the clock, a very exciting last moment which paved the road to the Champs Elysee.

The Austrian Bernhard Kohl finished third,1:13 minutes behind the winner. He kept the white and red jersey along with the honors of being the best climber in the competition.

Close to the end of the last stage the Spaniard’s team began to fall behind while Sastre remained with the group of cyclist that were the closest to Evans and Kohl, suddenly Sastre began to gain a considerable advantage in general.

After the latest edition of the Tour de France, the incredible success of Spain during 2008 continues as another Spaniard Oscar Freire kept the green jersey, which is given to the racer of better action in sprints.

This Sunday’s victory is shared with the Danish Bjarne Riis, CSC general manager, who gave Sastre plenty of support and the leadership of the team instead of Frank and Andy Schleck. These two riders had to sacrifice their possibilities to help Sastre since he was the one with best chances to obtain the title. Anyhow, the Schleck brothers were given the white jersey which is an accomplishment to those young riders that excelled in the Tour.

Other cyclist, the Belgian Gert Steegmans of the Quick Step team, was the winner of the last race of the event in the final sprint, arriving before the Germans Gerald Ciolek and Freire. On the other hand, the Colombian Leonardo Duque closed his participation in Paris remaining in the last positions.

Additional matters regarding doping also struck this edition of Tour de France; the Spaniards Manuel Beltr?n and Moises Duenas Nevado as well as the Italian Riccardo Ricc?, tested positive for the prohibited substance EPO. The three riders withdrew from the competition as soon as they were advised of the latest results obtained from their blood samples. Likewise, the Kazakh Dmitriy Fofonov was the last of the cyclists in violating the anti-doping rules after testing positive right after the 18 stage of the Tour.
