Singing Rock

Sit harness with adjustable leg loops for your small rock stars.

Designed for children which have well defined hips for a waist belt to hold.
For both leg loops and a waist belt two webbings and wider construction provide maximum support and comfort when hanging in the harness.
3 patented stainless steel Rock&Lock buckles for fast and safe adjustment.
Thanks to the Rock&Lock buckles on leg loops it is possible to put the harness on without having to take skis or crampons off.
Tie-in points which have the most abrasive wear are reinforced by PAD webbing.
Padded waist belt and leg loops are made from EVA foam and breathable PES fabric with high abrasion resistance.
Inside mesh dissipate moisture and dries quickly in wet conditions.
2 new ergonomic gear loops with a load capacity 5 kg are shaped to facilitate handling and to provide enough space for the gear.
Color belay loop for proper tie-in/attachment point, strength 15 kN.
Fixed bridge between the leg loops provides a higher safety in case of wrong tie-in.
Plastic buckle and sleeve for quick removing and adjustment of the rear elastic straps.
The harness is available in two sizes.

Gear Loops

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.

Worth Considering

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.”

2 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.

Haul Loop

Haul Loop

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.

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.
