"Its your basic, general, and simple harness that works"
This is the harness that I began my climbing career in. It's extremely simple and tested. The harness is perfect for Mountaineering since you wont be hanging off of it for days on end. It delivers a sturdy performance in case of Rescue or Belay. However, as mentioned previously, it isn't made with comfort in mind. So hanging off of this harness for a few hours might suck. Its simple 3-strap system is perfect for high altitude.I used it to rock climb and I was in pain after a few hours. But, if you're looking for an in expensive beginners harness for rock climbing at the gym or the occasional crag, this harness delivers. I recommended this harness to my buddy who was not big into climbing but was the only person who I knew that would come climbing with me for support. He bought it and belayed me up quite a few times and every once in a while he "sended" himself. He loved it. he climbs ever so often and likes the fact that harness was reasonably priced and trust worthy.
