Rack up with the Metolius Open Sling for trad or alpine routes and you won't regret it. For one thing, it's highly lightweight because Metolius made it out of nylon and Dyneema, so feel free to take as many as you like without weighing yourself down. And it's the skinniest sling in the Metolius lineup, which is fantastic because you won't mess around on lead trying to untangle a bunch of bulky slings in order to extend your placements. Get the smallest sling if you're looking to extend your pieces, the medium sized sling for extending your pieces under roofs or at corners, and the large size for an excellent anchor system.
