If you know your friends who are just as fascinated by climbing as we are, check out our selection of the best practical gifts for rock climbers.

 

CLIMBING SHOES

Do you need to have excessive amounts of climbers? Perhaps, but we haven’t been to the limit yet. If you’re like us, you’ll be climbing at minimum three times per week, and we’re making holes in our shoes very quickly.

It is one of the most practical gifts to rock climbers and those who are minimalist rock climbers. The minimum requirement is when you just boulder (or are free for a solo), the sneakers are all you need.

Climbing shoes have to be the best shoe for your foot. However, the fact that a friend strongly recommends their shoes made of the most sticky rubber doesn’t suggest that the shoe is suitable for you. It is best to purchase them a brand new shoe that they already have and love.

 

ROPE

If someone in your life is interested in Sports and Trad climbing, they’ll enjoy the new rope. There are a variety of suitable ropes for various circumstances, but you will surely find one that’s slightly more versatile than the one we just bought.

Many climbers will tell you it’s the most important investment you can make. For instance, everything else (shoes and hardware) is in the same category. However, the rope is where you’ll need to invest the most money.

 

CHALK BAGS

Chalk bags are a great option to add a touch of style and individuality to your style. Some are practical, while some are fun and stylish. There are even companies that create custom-designed ones from your personal toys.

 

MEGALITH WALL PANELS

Since the gyms were all closed because of the epidemic and we decided it was time to build our own wall. Our long-term plan is to build a bigger area but to get an experience of it in our living space, we bought some Megalith panels. We are awestruck by how they appear! They were very easy to install and almost look like artwork on our walls, even when not climbing upon them.

 

ROCKY TALKIES

Whatever type of climbing style you’re in, communicating is vital. Don’t buy any walkie-talkie. Get one that’s a Rocky Talkie. These tough radios are durable, easy to use, and last a long time. They also have excellent battery longevity (3or more days on one charge) and a long-range.

Friends of ours use these for multi-pitch climbs, and they’ve transformed their lives. They no longer need to worry about communication issues in the process. They also help us locate each other while climbing. Since we do not always have cell coverage and plans change frequently, it is possible to prepare ahead so that we are connected and locate one another.

Some more potential gift items are climbing chalks, climbing sticks, prusik cords, etc.
