Force of the fall calculator

Calculate force in different situations of falls while climbing. Find out which falls can climbing gear withstand.
Weight: kg / lb / N
Drop: m / ft
Rope length: m / ft
Rope elongation: %
Climber's and belayer's extra give: m / ft
Force: kN
Fall factor: fall

Approximate climbing gear strengths

  • Ropes 8-10 kN
  • Slings 22 kN
  • Harness belay loop 15 kN
  • Carabiners 20-25 kN
  • Quickdraws 22 kN
