Quickdraws

Piece of equipment that connects the climber’s rope with each piece of protection while leading. A quickdraw is made up of two carabiners (non-locking) that are connected to each other via a “dogbone” (piece of webbing or sling).

Usually the length of the dogbone is at least 8 inches long. Some quickdraws are made with longer ones. There is always a designated carabiner for the bolt and for the rope. The carabiner for the rope is often fixed to the sling via a piece of rubber, so that the carabiner does not start spinning through movement on the rope. Also the carabiner for the rope has often a curved gate which facilitates clipping the carabiner while climbing
