Rock Climbing Gear Package

Are you looking for the best rock climbing gear for beginners? Did you know you can save a lot of dough by getting a climbing gear package instead of buying all your gear separately?

Today, most major climbing gear manufacturers offer a package deal for their entry level climbing gear at a deep discount. These packages are also known as a climbing harness package.

Since these gear sets are only aimed at beginners they only have indoor rock climbing equipment in them. This should be fine for most of you since outdoor climbing is much harder to get started with. After climbing at the gym for awhile you will want to upgrade your equipment. Here is a list of the best gear for climbing:

Although this is a good start check out this REI article for a complete list of all the gear you could ever need.

For now, you will probably want to just stick with a beginner set of climbing gear. This is the most cost-effective way to get the gear you need.

Most packages contain at least the following:

  • Climbing Harness
  • Chalkbag
  • Belay Device (ATC)
  • Locking Carabiner
  • Chalk (maybe)

This gets you started climbing in the gym in no time! This also will save you from having to rent that smell uncomfortable gear from the gym. You’ll look cooler too!

The only thing that a rock climbing gear package doesn’t contain is climbing shoes. If you don’t have a pair yet make sure to check out your top selection of Beginners Climbing Shoes Here!
