Definition of Climbing Slang Word



Biners on a quickdraw clip into the climbing rope.

Stewart M. Green

Definition: Short for carabiners, a metal ring with a spring-loaded gate that opens and closes and is an essential part of every climber’s equipment. Some biners are locking carabiners and others have bent gates for easy clipping.

Usage: “How many biners do we need on the route?”
