Buying a quickdraw set is like buying a puppy: It’s not just for Christmas, it’s for life.
Whatever quickdraw set you get, you’re stuck with. They last forever, so it’s worth making sure you get some good ones.
So your friend or family members birthday is coming up and you know they are pretty big into climbing bouldering or just really loves climbing trees.
The problem is you know nothing about the climbing but you still want to get them a great gift.
I have compiled a list of gifts that any climbers will be happy to receive, at the very least it should give you a couple of ideas for something your monkey spirited buddy might want.
If you are going to take climbing seriously you need what every good climber has:
A kickass chalk bag.
For those new to climbing, chalk bags are pretty self-explanatory.
During climbs, your hands can sometimes get clammy or sweaty which can lead to slipping on hold. You use the chalk to dry them out and make sure you can get as much friction as possible.
So, if your anything like me, you love talking, watching and thinking of anything climbing related.
We have all been there, right? A long slow day at work, hands itching to get back on the wall and climb something, anything.
Once you have seen some of the climbing Shangri la’s below you will wish you hadn’t.
They do however make perfect daydream material.
Back when I first heard about half ropes, I just didn’t understand what the point of them was.
There I was, searching around on the internet, reading article after article and getting more confused by the second.
The funny thing is, half ropes are amazing, and they’re actually really simple to get your head around, despite what people think.
