The Titan is officially retired.You've found a page of history! The Titan is no longer produced by Misty Mountain and it is not available to buy from major online retailers. You can still check out all the specs and claim your ownership.
Modern big wall climbing sometimes finds you out of the aiders as much as in them. The Titan is designed with this in mind, comfortable and supportive enough for long days hanging by the daisy chains, and yet light and flexible for stepping out of the aiders and into some hard free climbing. The Titan is designed with a double buckle waistbelt for a wide range of adjustment, allowing the gear loops to be centered on your hips and symmetrical throughout the size range. With six big gear loops, the Titan provides plenty of on-harness racking, and the cambered shape prevents slippage when carrying a load. The tie-in points are reinforced with abrasion resistant nylon tubular webbing, and the 6,000 lb. belay/rappel loop is wide for easy access. Padded with bilayer foam, the Titan has wide inner layers which distribute forces over 3 times more surface area. Leg loops are adjustable and removeable, helping you to sleep securely and comfortably on a ledge while still anchored in. For comfort of mind and body on the Big Wall, the Titan is King

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.”

|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.

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.
