The Trekking Pole is a tool that is often used by senior climbers or hikers but is very rarely used by beginner climbers even though the benefits are numerous. The main function of the trekking pole is to help and provide a sense of security to climbers, especially in climbing Mount Rinjani.

Some beginner climbers rarely use this one tool because it adds to the luggage and the impression is complicated. Indeed, beginner climbers want something practical and don’t want to carry a lot of stuff. In general, they bring only essential equipment such as a change of clothes, jacket, sleeping bag, shoes, and a little food. Forgetting to bring something that is no less important is the trekking pole.

If you know the other functions of trekking poles, maybe your perception can change a little. So, what are the uses of trekking poles which are multifunctional objects during climbing?
