Quick Intro: What Is A Climbing Quickdraw?
The popularity of indoor climbing has skyrocketed in the past few years but the basic question fans wonder is what is a climbing quickdraw? Climbing depends on proper leverage and foothold on the rock surface. A climbing quickdraw is what provides the connection.
The whole point in climbing is to wedge oneself on the rock wall and secure the body to give it a thrust upward. Quickdraw is a piece of equipment that provides a quick secure link to the climber with the rock surface. The purpose of a quickdraw is to have a piece of equipment that gives a secure link and can be retrieved with equal ease for the climb. Quickdraw is a piece of equipment with two biners that are joined by a rope that can be different lengths.
The rope length depends on difficulty level of the climb. For instance smaller quickdraws work well in indoor climbing. The two biners have booby trap latches. These latches are designed to make it easy for the climber to connect them to a rope and the wedge in the rock. Climbing quickdraw is the maneuver that enables a climber to stick to the rock or swing with it safely. A climber while climbing secures a protruding piece to use for holding, and then an anchor which is especially designed to expand on impact is hammered in the rock. This anchor is then attached to the climbing quickdraw by one of the biners. The other biner is used to pass rope. When the climber is tightly secured by a quickdraw, it is safe to move up and work on the other anchor.
