For one day routes you probably would even get away with something smaller, maybe the speed 22 if you like BD. But the 30 is probably more versatile if you're going to stay in huts n'stuff.

Haul lines are usually static and this is classed as "low stretch" so it would probably be fine but there might be better alternatives.

Hey Emil, I would reccomend nuts unless you live in yosemite or moab and climb cracks all the time. I find nuts more versatile and not to mention cheaper! Getting a few slings might not be a bad idea either if you havn't already got some. Silas.

Hey Tómas! just google this, apparently it stands for "Halbmastwurfsicherung". No idea what that means but a HMS carabiner usually has a "pear" shape and is wide enough for the rope to fit around twice or more.

Hi Louise, I think modern axes have gradually become shorter and lighter. A longer axe can help you feel more secure on snow slopes but if you are just crossing glaciers i would worry more about the weight? Cheers, Dave

Hey Mikhael, Quick draws aimed at sport climbing generally have thicker webbing. This makes them easier to pull on if you need duncan a section of your route. Hope that helps!
