A climbing harness is a protective equipment for the activities requiring the use of ropes such as rock-climbing, abseiling and working at heights. It secures a person to the rope or the anchor point. The uncomfortable and improper harness can cause pain and serious injury.
Climbing harnesses are generally made of nylon webbing. Sit harness is commonly used in rock climbing and full body harnesses are more popular for kids since they are difficult to slip out.
