Previous generations of harnesses designed for big-wall or aid climbing can be summed up with one word: cumbersome. They are too bulky for free-climbing and despite their overbuilt designs, they are not always the most comfortable option for long periods of hanging.
Enter the Warden - a sophisticated big wall machine that blends the benefits of performance free climbing harnesses with the features and systems unique to big walls. The result is the lightest, best-fitting, and most precise big wall harness ever conceived. The extra wide waist belt and leg loops feature innovative modified edge-load construction to deliver never-before-seen support and comfort. The legs also incorporate laminate construction with internal laser cut webbing to further help with the weight distribution during long periods of hanging. 6 mm EVA foam padding on the waist and 3 mm padding on the legs combines with soft, breathable, 3-dimensional mesh that helps wick moisture away from the body. The rugged exterior fabrics will hold up to the nastiest off widths where we tend to see the most intense abrasion. Four auto-locking buckles allow for fast and precise adjustment. Two secondary attachment points on either side of the main tie-in point keep daisy chains out of the way of the rope and belay loop. To further optimize organization and safety, the beefy 25 mm belay loop features our patented No-Twist system which locks the belay carabiner in place to prevent cross-loading. The 6 gear loops are webbing reinforced to make them super strong and are positioned to optimize the organization of the rack with a pattern that is offset both horizontally and vertically. This keeps gear reachable without overlapping too much so it is still easy to identify and access on the sharp end. Two integrated Hypalon® slots for Hub racking carabiners allow for even more organization. A full-strength haul loop with a secondary attachment point for a chalk bag or other accessories round out the features on this big rig.

In grams, the weight, as stated by the manufacturer/brand.
If there are differences in weight (due to multiple sizes or optional accessories) we'll list them here.
The default weight is the middle-most size, often this is size M.
| 595 g|
M : 595 g / 21 oz
CAMP doesn't provide the weights for other sizes so we're working on gathering this info by hand, stay tuned!
|Sizes||XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL|
Number of Gear Loops
Gear loops are used to hold gear (quickdraws, cams, etc) onto your harness. 4 gear loops is most common.
0 - 1 Gear Loops
Most often on full body harnesses or guide/gym style harnesses.
2-3 Gear Loops
Mostly found on lighter harnesses made for [ski] mountaineering or high-end sport climbing where weight is a high priority.
4 - 5 Gear Loops
The standard/most common number for climbing harnesses. Perfect for sport and trad.
More Than 6 Gear Loops
Designed for long multi-pitch and big wall climbing, found on harnesses made to hold the maximum amount of gear.
Occasionally, the number of gear loops will change on a harness model depending on the size. There could be 7 gear loops for the med/large but only 5 gear loops for the xsmall/small. In this case we list the highest number for the filters, and then write an explanation on the product page like, “Size S/XS can only fit 5 gear loops.”
|6 Gear loops|
|Ice Clip Slots|
Ice Clip Slot
Ice clipper slots are made to fit a carabiner that holds ice screws. These slots are generally only used by ice climbers but there is no disadvantage to having them on your harness.
Less than 40% of harnesses will have ice clipper slots. And those harnesses will usually have 2 or 4 slots, often located next to, or between, the gear loops.
|Belay / Tie-In||One Loop|
|Waist Buckle Type||Quick Adjust|
|Leg Buckle Type||Quick Adjust|
Trad climbers often look for a haul loop as they're intended to haul a rope (second line) or pack (while you climb the chimney).
A haul loop can also hold shoes or other accessories. Although not the intended use, it is also commonly used to hold a chalk bag.

Creating this harness was a very collaborative process involving the sewers and designers who create all the prototypes in Italy, and the CAMP USA crew who were driving the requirements and ideas from Colorado.
The UIAA equipment standard provides a baseline for equipment performance in a test lab under controlled conditions on new equipment. Although these test conditions are relevant to the conditions encountered climbing, conditions encountered at the crags and the condition of the equipment are equally important. This recommendation from the UIAA member federation The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) provides vital equipment information that is NOT explicitly addressed in the standard, particularly failure modes of the equipment and recommendations for the use, inspection, maintenance, and retirement of equipment.
