A few weeks ago I updated my climbing harness to the Edelrid Jayne III. I highly recommend this model. It has features which make it the perfect harness for casual indoor, outdoor and/or competition climbing. As with most harnesses it comes in several sizes allowing people of all shapes and sizes to wear it.
One of the features that I noticed immediately was the increased comfort of the harness over the previous model. Some harness’s don’t spread the weight well when sitting down into them but the Jayne III distributed it evenly over the entirety of both the leg and waist straps. It prevents pain from thin webbing sections digging into your skin when you are working a route for long periods. This harness also feels very safe and secure with the straps having lots of adjustability so it can go quite tight while still remaining comfortable, it is the type of harness a nervous or new climber will feel comfortable doing roofs in. Due to the adjustability, the harness is also extremely easy to climb into and out of quickly between climbs, which is great when competing.
When competing, it’s so comfortable I’ve been doing my full warm up in it, it means I don’t risk cooling down while putting gear on and means I have more options to make sure I’m ready to hit the wall when I’m called.
I have thoroughly enjoyed climbing and competing in the Edelrid Jayne III, it’s fantastic for projecting when I’m training and doesn’t cause me any discomfort while taking long breaks between attempts. When competing, it’s so comfortable I’ve been doing my full warm up in it, it means I don’t risk cooling down while putting gear on and means I have more options to make sure I’m ready to hit the wall when I’m called. Most importantly it inspires absolute confidence when I’m pulling hard moves in comps and risking big inverted whippers, I love climbing in the Edelrid Jayne III.

This week’s jaunt saw me in Tasmania’s north and west spending some quality time in our magnificent Myrtle Beech forests. The first stop was Upper Quaile Falls, a place I had not visited before. Despite the track in leading through some previously logged forest, there were still some magnificent trees to be seen and the falls had plenty of water.
Back to the car and onward to a location west of Cradle Mountain, the Vale of Belvoir. This area was purchased by the Tasmanian Land Conservancy in 2008 and consists of a limestone valley roughly 10 km long by 2 km wide. Lying at an altitude of 800 metres it is Tasmania’s only sub-alpine limestone valley.
