Every single climbing gear has different characteristics and is used for different purposes. Here, we briefly mentioned the uses of a few most essential climbing gears. Just take a glimpse of them. 

Ropes - No need for introduction, used in so many different ways. It is the most important climbing gear. It acts as a pathway to reach the peak of the mountain, rock, and iceberg. Available in so many different quality, thickness, length, and material.

Climbing Harness - It is wearable straps or pads connected to each other that helps mountain climbers to be firmly attached from one end of the rope that is attached to any immovable object from the anchor point.

Belay Device - It is a piece of mechanical climbing equipment used by the belayer from the floor to control the rope during belaying. It actually acts as a friction breaker and helps to prevent the sudden fall. It also assists the climbers to easily arrest the fall of a heavier climber.

Quickdraws - Sometimes called an extender. It is a very useful piece of rope gears mainly used by rock and ice climbers. It mainly extends the difference between the anchor point of the rope and an anchor device and allows the rope to run freely. Quickdraws are made of two carabiners connected to each other through a semi-rigid material (also knowns as "dogbone")

Chalk - Chalk is mainly made from magnesium carbonate, used to apply on hand to dry the moisture, sweat, and any kind of wetness. It helps to improve the grip and have a firm hold on the rope. It is very important as just a bit of moisture on your hands can put you in danger. So, buy it as well as buy a chalk bag. It may be much more important than other handy climbing equipment.

Carabiners - As you carry some candies always in your purse and bag, the same way you should carry carabiners in your rope climbing gear bag.
