    <h1>Lets go climbing…………..what do you need to do this?</h1> <p>There is no fix list of things you need to go climbing. Back in the days they almost had no gear but of course this has changed. Today the choice of brands and models are endless, it has become a gear freak’s paradise. We at Casper’s Climbing Shop feel that climbing can be divided in to four categories: Bouldering, Sport Climbing, Mountaineering and Via Ferrata.</p> <p>Boulderers can generally get by with climbing shoes, chalk, chalkbag and a crashpad.</p> <p>Sport climbers need to add a harness, rope, quickdraws, carabiners, belay device, climbing helmet and maybe other items e.g. a few cams or nuts. </p> <p>Mountaineers need a lot of different products even for the easiest routes and here the choice is endless. It can range from crampons and ice axe to the right clothing and bivouac equipment.</p> <p>Via Ferrata is often under estimated as it seems easy and a perfect activity for a family holiday. Here there is also a large choice of products which will make your trip safer and more fun.</p> <p><span>Whether you are planning a relaxing bouldering holiday or a challenging tour in mountain terrain you will find the right climbing gear for every purpose, every level and every budget in our climbing shop. W</span>e started with only a few brands to which more have been added over time. A list of some of our brands include: E9, Petzl, Black Diamond, La Sportiva, Edelrid, Five Ten, Evolv, Metolius, Wild Country, Moon Climbing, Sterling Rope, Beal, Scarpa and many more.</p> <h2>Bouldering gear</h2> <p>As previously mentioned a boulderer doesn't need much equipment, barely any, which is why bouldering is considered by some people to be the purest form of climbing. It's the isolation of single hard moves that makes it ideal to work on hard sequences or on personal weaknesses. There's just you vs the rock, no rope keeping you safe, no clipps holding you on the wall, just you, your shoes fingers and pad. Others see bouldering as a training method towards rope climbing but it <span>has established itself as a completely independent discipline and a unique set of equipment</span><span> has emerged accordingly.</span> </p> <p><img src="" alt="" width="168" height="175" />The probably most important piece of gear in bouldering are the shoes. The way bouldering developed and transformed itself to become this insane sport it is now requires very specific equipment, and the shoes help you use your feet as hands. Hard rubber vs soft rubber, asymmetric vs straight, with/without support, laces vs velcro, Vibram edge vs grip etc. These are all aspects that play a massive role in your bouldering game. <span>They should fit perfectly, offer good grip and allow a good feel for the rock.   </span></p> <p><span>The next most important thing when bouldering is the crash pad because after all it's what prevents<span> impact with the ground in case of a fall. There are lots of different style pads out there, size matters, material and shockabsoarb system, carry system, thickness etc. Depending on where you go bouldering you will need to watch out for different features that could make your trip a lot more comfortable.</span></span></p> <p><span><span>Finally, you will need some chalk to complete your boulder kit. Any boulder chalk bag will do the job.</span></span></p> <h2><span><span>Sport Climbing gear </span></span></h2> <p><span><span>In addition to what a boulderer needs, a sports climber at least requires a rope, quickdraws, a belay device and a helmet to safely practice his/her sport.</span></span></p> <p><span><span>When it comes to ropes most climbers get by with a single rope, which is whats needed in gyms and outdoor if you do a simple single pitch. You get the ropes in different diameters, different lengths and material. Make sure to have a look at the routes you plan on attempting, Topos will generally inform you on how long the route is which is crucial to know when choosing your rope length. Remember if the wall is 20m high you'll need 20m to get up and an extra 20m to come down, so a 40m rope would do the job, but a 50m rope is probably the safer choice. </span></span></p> <p><span><span><img src="" alt="" width="150" height="172" />Quickdraws too have many different characteristics that need to be considered before a purchase/climb. The length of the sling can vary, the gate opening and closing system of the carabiners. Here again it is best to have a good look at the routes you plan on climbing and come down to the shop where we can help you with further information. </span></span></p> <p><span><span>When it comes to belay devices the choices seem endless but the main categories to consider are "assisted breaking" "semi assisted breaking" or "non assisted breaking" devices. Depending on what climb you're attempting and your level of experience different devices would be recommended. Again, analyse the routes you plan on climbing and come down to the shop where we can discuss in detail whats best suited for you. </span></span></p> <p><span><span>The climbing helmet is self explanatory. Everyone should be wearing one although a lot of people don't. This is a personal decision but just keep in mind that the rock is not picky, pro, novice or just spectator, when a rock gets loose and falls down it can hit anyone and cause severe injuries. Some of the climbing helmets have even been designed to be approved as cycling helmet so you can get two birds with one stone.   </span></span></p> <h2><span><span>Mountaineer equipment</span></span></h2> <p><span><span>This category includes ice climbing, securing your own routes and anything that is not sports climbing or bouldering. </span></span></p> <p><span><span>Sometimes routes are not bolted all the way or not at all. In those cases you need some extra equipment to be able to secure yourself on the way up. This type of climbing is called trad climbing or clean climbing because you don't leave a trace of your route on the rock. This type of climbing is very popular in the UK. This type of climbing requires the athlete to carry nuts and cams which are the tools that anchor him/her to the rock for the time being. </span></span></p> <h2><span><span><img src="" alt="" width="185" height="166" /></span></span></h2> <p><span>When it comes to ice climbing</span><span>, selecting your gear becomes a real science and the climb itself a material arms race. When on long high alpine tours you never know what conditions you'll encounter so you need climbing equipment for every eventuality with you. That means a full set of mountain climbing equipment plus full ice climbing gear, that is a lot to carry so good backpacks are a must too. </span></p> <p></p> <p><span>The most important thing in rock climbing is to be aware and informed of what you do. What style do you plan on climbing, then analyse the single routes you'd like to try, are they single pitch or multi pitch, how high are they, how long, how many bolts needed, are there bolts etc. Take note of all these aspects and come down to our shop where we can further discuss and try out what the ideal equipment for your climb is.</span></p> <p>We are constantly adding to our range of products so we can propose all the right gear you will need during your climbing.</p> <p>The choices are endless and difficult today so contact our <a href="/contact-us">Customer Service</a> or <a href="">send us a mail</a> to help you choose the right product for your needs. </p> <p></p> <p>Shop online.........more time to climb.</p> <p></p> <p>Casper's Supports Your Summit</p>
