Rock Climbing Gear List

Any safety gear such as harness and helmet needs to be in good condition and less than 10 years old.

I can provide helmet, harness, carabiners, belay device and sling at no extra charge if you require. I can arrange for rock shoe rental.

  • Approach shoes - good for trails and scree
  • Rock climbing shoes - for multi-pitch climbs these need to be comfortable so you can wear them all day including standing on ledges
  • Helmet
  • Harness
  • 2-3 locking carabiners
  • Belay/rappel device
  • 120 cm long sewn webbing sling
  • Headlamp
  • Water bottle - at least one liter
  • Lunch that you can eat "on the fly" 
  • Camera
  • Light rain jacket (waterproof)
  • Light gloves
  • Warm hat that fits beneath a helmet
  • Climbing pants
  • T-shirt
  • Long sleeve shirt
  • Soft shell or fleece/windshell combo
  • Depending on the forecasted temperatures you may throw in a very lightweight insulating layer like a puffball jacket
  • It is best to have synthetic clothing rather than cotton
