Racking For Cracks

This is how Steph Davis prepares racks her gear for climbing cracks. Including a 200’ pitch for which she used 28 cams.. This seems like good advice:

The most important, and also simplest tip, is to tape the cam sling just below the biner. There is nothing more annoying (and desperate), than slamming in a cam off of one arm, while in a layback position, and having the biner flip upside down so you have to spend an extra few seconds (and possibly your chance at getting the rope clipped into it) hanging on and turning the biner around. Believe me, it can make you want to cry.”
