What are the top ten Climbing Inventions?

Is the Carabiner the most important climbing invention ever?

I was thinking of writing an article for my blog on the top ten climbing inventions of all time. Loosely the theme is technology rather than say training. As such I have given a list below, but I am keen to hear your ideas.

  1. The Carabiner
  2. The Nuts, wires and Hexes
  3. Camming Devices
  4. Sticky rubber
  5. Kermantel Rope
  6. Slings
  7. Harnesses
  8. Belay devices
  9. Ice Axe
  10. Crampons

What would your top ten be?
