Want to buy a rack, but don't want to build your own? Here are some suggested racks, put together by staff at Bogong.

For each of these racks, we'll assume that you already have following: rope, harness, climbing shoes, locking carabiner, belay device, sling/safety.

Bear in mind, this is simply a starting point. The idea of these lists is to get you thinking about what you need for a rack, and an idea of cost. At Bogong, we can tailor your rack to suit what you want and where you want to spend money. Call (03 9600 0599), email us or visit us in-store any time.
