Gearing Up for Rock Climbing

Gearing Up for Rock Climbing

Have you ever wanted to start rock climbing, but weren't sure where to begin? The most important first step to take is to attend a good rock climbing class to teach you the basics. After you get the basics down you will want to start investing in gear to help you rock climb safely. Gearing up for rock climbing doesn't have to be expensive in order to be safe.

The first piece of gear you will want to invest in is a good pair of climbing shoes. Which type you will choose is dependent on if you climb indoors or outdoors. A good guideline is to pick shoes that fit closely, and should be made to grip the rock. A helmet is a piece that is also necessary if you are gearing up for rock climbing. A climbing rope is an essential piece of gear as well. A good tip is to make sure that the rope is UIAA-rated.

Another important piece for gearing up for rock climbing is a harness designed for rock climbing. While you are rock climbing you will want to wear comfortable clothing, and your harness should fit well over your clothing. Along with the harness, you will want to purchase carabiners and a belay device to control the rope and prevent falls.

Choosing rock climbing gear doesn't have to be complicated. The key is to choose gear that is safety rated and fits your needs. Follow these basic steps for gear and have fun rock climbing.
