Wedges and ridge wedges are important tools in climbing and mountaineering to create belays in natural cracks and pocket systems in rocks. They are used to create temporary anchor points and protect the climber in case of a fall. They come in different sizes and shapes to suit different types of cracks. By placing a wedge in a crack and then expanding it using a hammer or similar, the climber can create a safe anchor point. The shape and expansion of the wedge in the crack means that it is fixed and can carry a significant load.
