Other times, their job requires them to climb rocks, mountain slopes and other steep areas. Professional Climbers range from Soldiers and Firemen to Lumberjacks and Emergency Rescuers.

Basic Rock Climbing gear includes a helmet, a harness, carabiners, ropes and cords, cams and slings, and quickdraws.
