Sport climbing equipment can be difficult to pick out, but if you follow some sample guidelines you should have a good idea of what sport climbing equipment you need to purchase and what makes it quality.

Types Of Sport Climbing Equipment

The first piece of equipment you need to get is a good quality helmet. There are many manufacturers out there and while it may seem that a helmet is just a helmet this is not the case. While all sport climbing equipment needs to meet certain guidelines as far as tolerance is concerned this does not mean they are all made the same. Helmets are probably the best example of this.

A decent helmet is simply required to protect your head from a certain amount of damage. Great quality helmets will not only meet this, but also provide you with a comfortable and cool protector for you head. You may also want to consider how many times your helmet can be damaged before it needs to be replaced. While there is no way to truly tell this it can be pretty obvious when you pick up a helmet that is designed to break when damaged and one that is built to last.

You will also need to consider what kind of rope you use. Rope is made in many different ways. Specifically for rock climbing you need to get dynamic rope. Dynamic rope has flex so that it can better handle the difficulties of climbing. Not all sport climbing rope is dynamic, but if you truly want the best than do no hesitate to invest in this. You will not be disappointed and hopefully will be able to use it for a long time.

The next most important piece of equipment is your shoes. In many cases these will provide the majority of your push when climbing so you need something comfortable that will last and stand up to the heavy stress of climbing. You also want to get a shoe that is light and resist water or dries very quickly. There is nothing worse than wet feet on a climb.

Last piece of sport climbing equipment you need to get is a good chalk bag. Make sure to get something that is light, weather proof, and that can hold enough chalk for your longest climbs. This piece of equipment is often overlooked. There you have it, a few simple rules to follow to get the right sport climbing equipment.
