A pictoral representation of UIAA-105 and EN-12277 standards for harnesses.
- Light and compact for high-level mountaineering
- All-mountain functionality allows the harness to be put on and stripped off without removing crampons or skis
- Innovative load webbing construction maximizes comfort and reduces pressure points
- Legs and waist feature proprietary Sicura buckles that give the security of steel autolocking functionality with the ability to quickly de-thread for easy on-and-off in the mountains
- Integrated 3 mm padding on the waist
- Elastic straps between the waist and legs are connected by a single buckle for an easy drop seat
The Alp Mountain is a cutting-edge, ultralight and compact harness that features our innovative load webbing construction. It is more durable, comfortable, lighter, and faster to use than the existing lineup of mountaineering harnesses. Thanks to the blend of lightness, comfort, and ease of taking the Alp Mountain off and on, the harness is ideal for alpinism, ski mountaineering and high-level mountaineering. The Alp Mountain can be fully opened to be quickly put on or stripped off while standing in place wearing skis or crampons. Simply insert the waist belt through the belay loop and then close the buckles on the waist and legs. Webbing tabs on the buckles make them easy to de-thread while wearing gloves or mittens and the proprietary Sicura buckle design gives the security of steel auto-locking functionality at these critical connection points without losing the ability to quickly remove the harness.

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.
| 260 g|
M : 260 g / 9.2 oz
CAMP doesn't provide the weights for other sizes so we're working on gathering this info by hand, stay tuned!

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.”
|3 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||Tie-In|
|Waist Buckle Type||Clip|
|Leg Buckle Type||Clip|
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.
