EPIRBs for climbing (rock) Tuesday, 4 January 2011 At 10:32:48 PM Wollemi
If PLB's are free to hire, then so should cams be - 'coz they have saved my life on a few occasions...

I don't think I would want to clip a PLB to my (rock-climbing) harness. Once cracked one (and at the same time, my VHF radio) in the middle of Bass Strait when rapidly emptying kayak stuff into a carry bag. When I later realised they didn't work, I paddled on to Victoria anyway.

I sometimes carry my PLB when rock-climbing - and pad it in the torso-bag/camel-back.
