Sling: The piece of rope that is connect to the rock that is holding the rest of the rope and the climber. This piece needs to be strong enough to hold the weight of the climber while they are hanging from the rope.

Putting out any fires that you were to start If safety and care is not used while mountaineering, much harm can be done. Damage to the living organisms nearby as well as the land you are on can be done. Not only can you harm the things around you, but you can harm yourself by not wearing the proper equipment and doing this activity in a location where it is not meant to be. Many people have died when mountaineering and when proper care is not taken, you could put yourself in a place of great harm or even potential death. Mountaineering is the sport of climbing mountains. The sport consists of three areas; rock-craft, snow-craft, and skiing. Rock-crafting is climbing mountains that are complete rock; no snow or ice. Snow-craft is climbing through mountains that are mostly iceand snow. Skiing is a common sport but when it is in the mountains it is considered mountaineering since you are going through the mountains. The sport is often done indoors, as well, on a smaller scale. When done outdoors a great amount of experience, athletic ability, and knowledge of the sport and the mountain to maintain safety is needed. If these precautions are not taken you can put yourself in a harmful situation. Materials-Clothing
Wind/Rain Jacket and Wind/Rain Pants and Hat: In mountaineering, the weather can become very unpredictable as you are going into higher, colder altitudes so it is best to be prepared for any situation.
Belay Gloves: For safety reasons, it best to have belay gloves so you dont get any rips on your hands from the rock or any materials you are using.
Approach Shoes: Specialty climbing shoes that make climbing easier especially on a larger scale like on mountains. Materials-Other materials
Compass/GPS: A device that will help with navigation
Headlamp: An extra source of light besides the sun gives better perspective on what you are climbing so you can better see what you are climbing
Repair Kit/First Aid Kit: Another safety precaution that should be brought with you just in case.
Water Bottles: Being in the sun will make you really dehydrated.
Knife: Another safety precaution that should be brought in case your rope gets tangled or you are to get stuck under something
Matches/Lighter: To make fire if you are stuck and end up having to spend the night. Bibliography
