I am a firm believer that helmets are a indispensable part of your climbing rack. If you are in a toppeler situation or bouldering it probably isn't super necessary because you aren't going to take the kinds of falls on your head. However, if you're doing any sort of lead climbing, I do believe that helmets are really serious.

My son's rock climbing wall broke and we need to either fix it or find a rock climbing facility in the Phoenix Arizona area.


I am not very handy when it comes to fixing things but I am good when it comes to research and finding good deals. I read that you might also be looking for a rock climbing facility in Arizona. You can check out Phoenix Rock Gym. They have a huge facility specifically meant for rock climbing. The website which is Pogo Pass has some discounted passes for the Phoenix Rock Gym. If your looking to fix the rock wall maybe home depot would be a good start.

Tip

Choosing the best climbing helmet for your head


Rock climbing is a very fun hobby but it can also be very dangerous. Wearing a helmet when you climb can be a life saver, but it is important
that you make sure that you are wearing the right helmet both for the
activity you are performing and for your head.

When it comes to selecting the right type of helmet there are two main types to choose from, suspension and sponge. The suspension helmets are very similar to a construction helmet, its a hard shell with a netting on the inside.
These are really great for vertical dropping objects but they tend to be a little heavy. The other type of helmets are the foam helmets. These ones are made out of a lighter-weight polystyrene or polypropylene foam with a hard shell over it. It works by absorbing the energy of the of the falling object in the plastic and will deform the foam permanently. The durability of the helmet depends on the thickness of the shell, but because the impact on the helmet permanently damages the helmet it may not be very effective for extensive use.

After you have chosen the type of helmet that you will be using, its time to head into making sure that you have the right fit for your helmet. Keep in mind that you
will be more likely to use a helmet that fits correctly and is comfortable, before buying you should test out the helmet like you do with a pair of shoes. Many of the top climbing stores will allow you to try on and test out the helmet to make sure that it fits properly.

There are two main features that you have to pay attention to when trying on and picking out the right fitting helmet, they are adjustability and the chin strap. You start by placing the helmet on your head with it straight on your head making sure that you don’t tilt the helmet because you have to keep your forehead protected. Next you want to shake your head from side to side, does the helmet move? If it does then you want to either look for a different size helmet or if you can adjust the straps on the inside of the helmet so that it fits snugly. Then buckle the chin strap, it should fit snugly on your chin and form a Y shape
around your ears. There should not be any slack in the straps and if you
wear a pack make sure that you can lift your head to look up while
wearing the helmet.

A few side notes to keep in mind when considering the helmet you want to get. If you are going to be climbing in a very hot or very cold climate when you buy the helmet make sure to take your headscarf or hat with you so that you get a helmet that fits with them underneath. Where you are going to be climbing can also have an impact on the helmet that you will buy, if you are going to be
climbing in a cold climate that has ice you will want to get a solid helmet that will protect you from falling debris, while if you are going to be climbing in a warmer climate you will want to get a helmet that has air vents to allow for air circulation.

What are key points to look at when buying a climbing helmet?


in my opinion these are how easy it is to adjust it. the heaviness (weight), how easy it is to put on a head lamp, and the ventilation of the helmet.

Should I wear a protective helmet when rollerblading?


There is no law that suggests that you must wear a protective helmet when rollerblading - however if you are prone to falling over like me then it would be advisable to wear something to protect your precious head.

The femal portion of the chinstrap clip is cracked. How can I get it repaired?


Try this link and give it a go yourself - by the time you send off and then pay for postage it will be half a third or even half the price fo a new helmet - I would sell on ebay and buy a new helmet with the earnings. I tried this and really struggled due to the conection of the webbing straps - I eventaully sold the helmet and only paid £18 for a new one by selling it on ebay - decided to stick with the ecrin as the next grade up (pezle meteor) was just not right for me.

Are Petzl climbing helmets ok to use @ OSHA worksite


Hi,

The Vertex Vent and Vertex Best are the only two of Petzl's range that are rated for commercial use. The rest are sport models..

The link here is for their site..

http://www.petzl.com/en/pro/helmets

Any half decent outdoor/climbing shop will be able to sort you out. Don't be surprised though if shops don't stock the commercial range as therer's not a lot of turnover on it. A good store will be able to get in gear for you to try..
Personally, I have come across a few people (tree surgeons and mountain rescue mostly) who will still choose the sport models for the lightness and less bulk but we always advise them not to.
If you are in the EU then the ratings on Petzl's site will be correct but if you are in the US or AU then it would be worth checking the local regulations before purchase. I don't see it being a problem though, Petzl are globally accepted.
Either way, it could be an insurance nightmare if there is an accident involving someone wearing gear that's not covered..

Hope this helps..

Hard had


Yes, but it's not an industrial hard hat.. And you would be in breach of all sorts of insurance regs if you wore it on a site.

Petzl have two in their range that are rated for commercial use, The Vertex Best and the Vertex Vent.. See the link below for more info..

It's not worth the risk for a few quid less..

Is it true you don't wear a toque if you wear a snowboarding helmet?


I have a helmet and I don't need a hat under it. The helmet is quite warm. They also usually have vents to open for those warmer days.

Sharping Ice Climbing Tools


Step1 Use a 10-inch Mill Bastard file, although you can get by with a shorter version. Put your ice climbing tools in a vise while sharpening to make the process easier. Step2 Stroke the file away from you. If you draw the file back toward you, it becomes dulled and less useful. Make your sharpening strokes smooth and even. Step3 Work on honing the flat surfaces into sharp points. Follow the existing points, and do not try to change their direction. Step4 Sharpen from the front of the tool to the back. This helps to maintain the points. Step5 Buy replacement points for your crampons. Filing eventually will wear down your ice climbing gear. Replacing the points will ensure you'll be able to dig into the ice and rock surfaces.

One helmet gor various activities


Hi,

I see this has been here a while... But hopefully it can help. The only multisport helmet to hit the market recently is the Kong Scarab. We had a few in the shop here with mixed results.. It's rated for a bunch of sports though variously I got responses like "too heavy" "too hot" Too bulky" etc, depending on whether it was a climber, paddler, skater etc.. So I guess the answer is yes, it does exist, but it's not perfect...
