beginner COLLECTION

The most important essentials to get you climbing are shoes, a harness, a chalk bag, and an ATC. Your shoes should not be very aggressive, and there's no need for you to be buying top of the line gear. In the Beginner Collection, we've helped you narrow down your options to cost effective and reliable starting pieces.

La Sportiva Tarantulace - Women's These are a great introductory pair of shoes. They're comfortable enough for long sessions at the gym, but also way more reliable than any rental shoe. Highly recommended for a first pair of climbing shoes!

La Sportiva Finale - Women's The Finale is a super durable shoe! Much cheaper than some of its competitors, and, in my opinion, a really nice looking shoe. A lot of introductory shoes use wild colors, and this is a much more subdued option.

Black Diamond Solution - Men's This harness is another great choice for your first harness because of its price and how long it will last. Also one of the only black harnesses I know of in case you're not into wild colors!

Black Diamond ATC This is your standard ATC! A must have for any new climber to be used to belay or rappel. Use one of these until you save up enough to get a Gri Gri for belaying.
