Good Quality Rack

This is a great starter rack or need to replace an old one, at a really good price. The only thing missing are the carabiners.

The only draw back to this set is there are too many hexs. I have been trad climbing for over 10 years. I do not carry hexs anymore or know anyone who carries that many cow bells. All the other components of the set are essential for the beginning trad leader.

      Comments about Black Diamond New Leader's Rack:

      I bought this as a gift for my partner who is an avid climber. He didnt have any trad gear before and has the perfect starter set now. This rack is great for those who are just getting started with trad climbing, and for the amount of gear included, its a great price. The only downside is how expensive this gift is when shipping internationally as the discounts offered no longer apply.

                Finally bit the bullet and added trad gear to my sport rack. Everything you need to get started leading trad routes. Not sure where I'm gonna place the largest hexes but I will know when its time and I have them. Just add biners and combine this rack with your climbing partner's and go get some.

                    Back at Konstein Germany this weekend- on sighted a 7+ (my first) feeling 100% confident & focused. The start was fine & totally in sync until hitting a few finger pockets- then like a Christmas gift hidden under the tree away from sight was a beautiful space for my #4 BD Cam. Bam! I put that cam in @ mach 5, took a deep breath and moved on. Then without any rational (beside fatigue) I fell 6' & that cam held my 6'4 & 270 pound body with ease- zero damage to the wires & minimal scratching on the cam itself. Thanks guys! April 2009 I'm going back to Thailand- any takers? rmckellop[@]

                    This rack rules! Just climbed a few routes in Konstein Germany- lead climbed my first 3 pitch 5+ (10A) this rack has just about everything you need for a multi pitch day. I used non-locking oval biners for the cams- no problems. But just to be safe I'm going to order 10 oval locking biners.
