YES!!! Climbing is an investment, just like anything else!!! I would think that if you were going to throw money into buying a harness you would want to treat it well too (disregard falling while climbing or scraping on the rock, that's part of the game). But I think that any climber here would cry at the fact that someone might buy climbing gear, but not want to take care of it. To answer your question...YES!! YOU SHOULD TAKE CARE OF ALL OF YOUR GEAR!!!!

I'm going to reply to this post, and only this one... please don't respond to the multiple copies, as then hangman will be unable to delete them.

Hangman, go to the other two copies of this, hit "edit post", check off the "delete" box, and hit "submit".

    UMMMM yea. If life apleals to you you should be taking care of all your gear. Harneses loose strengh from sunlight just like a rope would. Also any scores or tears should be addressed. I have thrown away harneses due to extreamly bad lead falls ( factor 1-1.5). I inspect ALL my gear before I put it on or start a climb. Remember the only thing stopping you from cratering is your gear. Respect is crutial.

Your life depends on your gear, as do the lives of others. It is incredibly irresponsible to not take care of it, especially since it can endanger others.

TAKE CARE OF YOUR GEAR!

Yes!
Take care of your gear better than you take care of your life.
What kind of question is that anyway?
