After the applicant has proven ability and commitment we will provide whatever climbing equipment the climber prefers. All equipment becomes the climbers personal equipment and is the climbers responsibility. We will usually start buying permanent equipment once you have been employed for 2-3 months. We have some weaver saddles and safety blue ropes that we use for starter equipment if you don't have any of your own gear for starting. Safety equipment is pretty standard any type of simple hearing protection you want. We start with a standard front brim hard hat and once you have proven we usually provide petzle climbing hat. Chaps are also available.
