Ray's Favourite Kit

I have had a few trips this year, March saw me in the Cairngorms for some winter climbing. The weather could have been better but (as always) my paramo jacket and trousers (Helki jacket, enduro trousers kept me comfortable whatever was thrown at me.
It didn’t come out of my bag but my Rab group shelter always went with me. The Cairngorm plateau can be a very windy place and a good quality group shelter is essential equipment if you have to make an unscheduled stop.

Another item I always keep handy is the Petzl spatha If I need to retreat off a climb due to poor conditions (as I did this March in Coire an t-Sneachda) I need a reliable knife to sort out abseil anchors, it is also handy for chopping onions when all the knives in the hut are blunt!

The warmer months saw a few trips to the Lake District for climbing and walking. My Horizon premium merino trek socks my feet comfy and blister free for many miles.

The Pangea bamboo travel towel in very handy during the hot weather for a few impromptu and chilly swims.

Back at home and visiting the local sport climbing I appreciate the smooth action and light weight of the Petzl spirit carabiner I always use it with my lanyard at the lower off and really like the red closed/open indicator on the gate, one glance to put your mind at rest.
Lastly, never leave home without your Buff.
