If you’ve ever stood on a peak or at an anchor and struggled to get a harness on or off, CAMP’s new Alp Mountain harness was made for you. Proprietary Sicura buckles on the waist and legs offer the security of steel autolockers but open and close quickly. The overall design of the Alp Mountain is perfect for ski mountaineering and light and fast alpinism in general. Simple load-webbing construction is light, compact, and durable. The rear elastic leg loop connectors are strung through a single buckle for quick drop-seat functionality. Three sturdy gear loops are supplemented by six additional hub-racking carabiners for ice screws, tools, or additional protection. Add it up, and you get a great harness for skiing on glaciers or in couloirs that don’t go. The CAMP Alp Mountain is a ski mountaineering harness.
- Harness can be put on and taken off easily without removing skis.
- 3mm of padding adds a modicum of comfort to the waist belt.
- Drop-seat is activated with one buckle for a quick nature call.

I'm leaving for the Himalaya on 6 October to climb Cholatse and wondering if it is likely that I will be able to get an Alp Mountain Harness XL size before then?
