Sometimes when you commit to a goal, you find that it pushes the boundaries of what you thought was possible. "Last year I set myself up with the idea that I wanted to be the first American woman to climb M11." Mountain Hardwear athlete Dawn Glanc is an ice climber and mixed climber from Ouray, Colorado.

How to Choose a climbing Harness?

Climbing harnesses are essential for climbing. They're usually designed with minimal padding, the assumption being that you'll hang in your harness little if at all, so comfort can take a back seat to weight. Mountaineers expect to travel in snowy or wet conditions, to take bathroom breaks while still in the harness and to wear the harness over a variety of layers, including taking it on and off over boots and crampons. As a result, mountaineering harnesses are typically made of non-absorbent material, have detachable leg loops to facilitate bathroom breaks, and adjust sufficiently to accommodate a variety of layers.
