Important Items Of Climbing Gear To Carry With You While Rock Climbing

Come to think about it, rock climbing involves either of two things: you could be going up or will come down and therefore, if you are not someone with a good head for heights; then this may not be the sport for you to try. Furthermore, you also need to ensure that you take along with you the proper climbing gear and have also been trained in how to use the rock climbing gear as well are conversant with the proper techniques of rock climbing.

To be sure, climbing gear is available in any department store though for more variety you may need to visit specialty stores where you could buy big brand name products such as from Nike, Petzl, Merrel and Black Diamond.

Good Pair Of Shoes/Boots

To get the most out of your climbing efforts, you need to have certain items of climbing gear on hand that will help you climb as well as descend safely. To start off, you need a good pair of shoes/boots without which you won’t be able to do any worthwhile climbing since it is necessary that you get a solid and firm foothold on the surface of the rock to ascend as well as descend, and in addition, the shoes/boots should fit snugly and they should also never be uncomfortable.

Secondly, going rock climbing without a harness would be tempting fate and this is another climbing gear item that you should have with you whenever you try to climb rocks. In fact, these harnesses are also especially designed for individual use by children, women as well as by men and they can even be made to suit different types of body sizes and shapes.

Other than when indulging in free climbing, you would also need another item of climbing gear which is ropes of which there are two types to choose from. First, you can use single ropes and secondly, there are double ropes though you need to be sure that the ropes that you buy are strong enough to bear your weight and in addition, it is always a good idea to have a bit more length of rope than is absolutely required.

Another essential item of climbing gear that you should ensure having is a helmet which can protect your head from becoming bruised or bumped and they will certainly provide useful protection to your head in case of a fall. In addition, you need to include a bag that can hold all of your climbing gear whenever you are out on your rock climbing trip and in fact, you need to look for those bags that have plenty of pockets in which to hold minor items of climbing gear and they should also be waterproof as well.

Finally, you also need to include belay devices and camming devices and you also need karabiners as too climbing holds as well as nuts that can be used in tiny spaces and which can come in very handy, especially in case the camming devices fail to work.
