"Rack to 3 inches" means include the blue Camalot but not the #4. Gunkiemike

The more you get out and climb at a certain crag, the more you will figure out what is your standard rack. Such as my standard rack I carry is single micro cams, and doubles from .5-3 with offset nuts. If I were in a different area, maybe I would carry more nuts or tricams. Being new, always carry your full rack. It's great weight training, and you won't get stuck half way up a pitch without that one piece you really want. Jeremy Riesberg
