Goggles Amber or rose-tinted goggles for adverse weather. Additionally, contact lens wearers may find a clear-lensed goggle very useful on windy nights.\\\\\\\\r\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\r\\\\\\\\nWhy are Goggles Important? Goggles (typical ski goggles) are worn in bad weather and high winds. They don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t need to be dark as they are often worn at night or in low light conditions. Goggles can be useful for contact lens wearers to protect against blowing dust on breezy climbs.\\\\\\\\r\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\r\\\\\\\\nHeadlamp Be sure to begin your program with fresh batteries. \\\\\\\\r\\\\\\\\n\\\\\\\\r\\\\\\\\nHeadlamp Tips \\\\\\\\r\\\\\\\\nA headlamp with a bright beam is attached to the climbing helmet for climbing at night. Most headlamps use LED bulbs and are very efficient with batteries, but carrying a spare set of batteries is a good idea. The headlamp can be worn on your head around camp and later attached to the climbing helmet using the small plastic tabs positioned along the helmet\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s edge.
