What do you give a climber? What is a suitable gift for boulderers? We present you eight products that make every climbing heart beat faster.
Whether a warming down gilet, a stylish knife for your picnic on the wall or chalk that brings you success in your project. With these gift ideas for climbing and bouldering, you are guaranteed to ensure bright eyes and good moments out on the rock.
Most climbers have cheese, a little meat, bread, combined with a fruit, nuts and chocolate on the menu when they are outside on the rock. The Emmental cheese and the fine Italian salami need to be cut into bite-sized portions.
This has recently been done in style. The tattoo knife from Deejo is available in various pretty designs - you are guaranteed to find the right subject for your loved one.
Do you know the situation You stand at the foot of the wall with the Grigri in your hand and slowly but surely the cold creeps up inside you. You start shivering and are completely frozen when it's your turn to climb again. We have the ultimate weapon against this problem: The Compressor Pant thermal pants.
With these pants, combined with a down jacket, you are guaranteed not to freeze. And thanks to the side zippers over the entire leg length, you can even put them on at the stand on a multi-pitch route!
Climbers have a thousand arguments when it comes to justifying the unsuccessful ascent: sweaty fingertips, the wrong shoe, too much callous skin on the fingertips and so on.
At least the first excuse, the sweaty fingertips, no longer applies at the latest with the use of the magnesium Black Gold. Because the special Magnesium Black Gold Chalk from Black Diamond contains 10% Upsalite, an extremely porous form of magnesium carbonate that absorbs twice as much moisture as other compounds.
Another product from Mountain Equipment we don't want to withhold from you: The Frostline West. If you don't want to wear a conventional down jacket, but still need a warming garment due to the temperatures, a down vest is the perfect choice. The Frostline West has a water-repellent outer material and is a whopping 71 grams!
The best climbing and bouldering photos come with brightly colored clothing, that's the recommendation of a mountain sports photographer. Because whoever wears black or brown is hardly noticeable in the picture. So, get yourself a colorful T-shirt from LACRUX - you are spoiled for choice.
