Shoes, harness, rope, helmet, cams, locking carabiners, draws, chalk bag, wind shell, puffy, rain shell, base layer. What am I forgetting? Oh yeah, headlamp. And food. Sound familiar? If you are a climber, you probably find yourself going through checklists constantly, making sure you have all the essentials to keep you safe and stoked on your days to play. But what brand of shoe should I get? And what style of harness? And what diameter of rope?
