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.

    It depends, if there are climbers above then yes, if there are loose rocks above then yes, if you are aid climbing then yes, if you could take a big lead fall or hit the ground then yes.

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.

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.

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.

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...
