Recommended Gear

Contrary to rock climbing’s dirt bag roots, its gear is not the cheapest by any means. Almost all decent pieces of climbing gear will set you back a pretty penny or two. The trick is finding the gear that will give you the best bang for your buck.

Buying low quality or worn out equipment may be cheap but it is also dangerous and may lead to injuries. That being said, just because something is very expensive, doesn’t mean it is exponentially better than a moderately priced piece of equipment.

I have spent countless hours researching and trying out all kinds of climbing gear. I hope to share everything I have learned with you and let you know what gear items you can be more frugal with and which ones you can’t.

Basically, I want to be able to help you save money and get the best gear possible that will actually be worth it for you. There is no point in you having to spend hours on end researching all of the different climbing gear features when I have already done so.

The following recommended gear pages will discuss in detail what to look for in each piece of equipment and give my recommendations on which I think will be best for you. Just click on the photo below or use the menu to navigate towards which gear piece you wish to learn more about.
