Caring for Your Climbing Harness
Like anything else, the better you take care of your climbing harness, the better it will take care of you. Given the job your climbing harness is tasked with, it is critical to check it regularly for wear and tear.
While a well-loved harness is not exactly considered “unsafe,” fraying or discoloration of webbing is a good indicator it is time for a new climbing harness, and any harness over 7 years old should be replaced. Similarly, if you are climbing on a regular basis, retire your climbing harness after one year.
Another aspect to consider is cleaning your harness. The simplest way to clean your harness is to rinse it. If after you rinse it the dirt is still there, try using warm water and mild soap, followed by rinsing. Allow your harness to air dry away from direct sunlight. Store your harness in a dark and dry bag or place free from other objects that could damage it.
