If you're looking for fitness, fun and a healthy dose of adrenaline, then rock climbing is for you. Though Climbing considered one of the most thrilling and risky outdoor activity. If you are thinking going out for Climbing purpose, I must tell you to check the gears and equipment first. one should be more concern about the safety and efficiency before going out.
As a beginner, you should start out doing indoor climbing, bouldering or top-rope climbing outdoors.
Lets have a glance on those essential tools that you must have before you go for climb.

Climbing Clothing: Wear clothing that is not restrictive and won't get in the way of you or the rope. Your clothing should breathe, wick sweat and dry fast so that you can stay warm and comfortable while climbing.
Climbing Shoes: I know Rock climbing and bouldering are one of the most thrilling adventures. It requires Concentration and skills as well as safety. When it comes to safety a quality climbing shoe is a must.
Climbing Helmet: A helmet should feel comfortable, fit snugly but not too tight and sit flat on your head. Helmets usually have a hard protective shell and an internal strapping system.
Climbing Harness :Unless you are bouldering, you need a climbing harness. A harness consists of two basic parts:

  • Waistbelt: This sits over the hips and must fit snugly.
  • Leg loops: One loop goes around each leg. Many harnesses conveniently offer adjustable or removable leg loops
Chalk : Chalk absorbs perspiration on your hands. To lessen environmental impact, it's good form to use a chalk that matches the color of the rock you're climbing. Chalk is carried in a small pouch slung from your waist by a lightweight belt.

Carabiners : These strong, light metal rings with spring-loaded gates connect the climbing rope to pieces of climbing protection such as bolts, nuts and camming devices.

Belay Device : This is used to help the belayer control the rope. Used correctly, a belay device increases friction that helps the belayer catch a fall, lower a climber, pay the rope out gradually as the climber advances, or reel in slack smoothly. The two most common belay-device styles are tubular and assisted-braking.

Climbing Ropes : No piece of gear is more important to a climber than the rope, though again, when you're just starting out, the rope will likely be provided for you. As you progress, where and what you are climbing will determine which rope is best for you.

Climbing Protection: As a beginning climber, you won't be setting anchors or placing protection. Understanding what it is and learning how to do it, though, will make you a more well-rounded climber. You'll want to be a proficient sport climber first, and then take classes to learn the proper way to place protection.

So,I think you have already get a simple overview on those tools and a deeper knowledge on this gears is mandatory before you go on rock.

For beginners, climbing shoes are a good investment as are chalk bags and a comfortable harness. Before anything, however, I'd highly recommend taking some climbing classes so that you know how to safely climb (i.e., tie in, belay, climb, etc.).

What is an ATC in Climbing?


We use belay device as a mechanical equipment used to control a rope during Climbing. And an ATC or Air Traffic Controller is a type of belay and rappel device introduced by Black Diamond, which is a tubular device gives more area and steeper angles to creat friction and stopping power .
The ATC has found the most commonly used type of belay device, and so the model name of ATC has become synonymous with tubular belay devices.

The original Black Diamond Air Traffic Controller device debuted in 1993, designed by Chuck Brainerd,
The improvement over plate devices is that plates could move down and lock against the carabiner when the rope was pulled hard. By using a tube instead of a plate, the slots were a half-inch above the carabiner and now the rope could be fed under tension. This made belay mechanics much easier. The sharper edge also generates more friction, giving the belayer better control.
Hope you find it helpful and appropriate ,and if you need any further information or tips about Rock climbing ,Gears,Shoes,accessories or anything else, you can have a look on this Climbing review Blog

What are the best belay device for solo climbing?


If you are looking for a partner to go for Rock climbing but you cannot find a single one, you should know about Solo climbing.
There are two types of solo climbing:
1:Free-solo: this means climbing without any ropes or other protection.
2:Roped-solo, as the named suggests, ropes are used in case of a fall.
Free solo climbing is extremely dangerous than roped soloing but proper rig can make a safe way for you.
Without tying a leader into the rope, the rope is tied of at the ground, or at a belay station on a multi pitch route. Controlling the rope can be done I many ways. My favoured way is with a Petzl Grigri, but there are other similar or related devices on the market. Lets have a look on them.
  • Petzl Grigri+: This Game Changer is pretty Similar to the previous series Grigri 2, cam inside the device pivots when the rope is pulled through quickly, cinching the rope tight and slowing or stopping it with anti-panic function as well.

  • Wild Country Revo : Pretty similar to the way a seatbelt works. To lock down on the rope when the rope spins the wheel at a high number of revolutions per second. it has been known as Beginner's Best Friend.

  • Trango Vergo : It narrows the space for rope and stops from moving, where two plates are designed to pivot under the force. Natural Motion controlling device

  • Mad Rock Lifeguard : In this light and reliable device is set oncamming mechanism, which has been installed to changing the angle of the rope when a strong tug on the climber's end of the rope pulls it up.

There are many more belay device you can find out in market ,what makes me more satisfied and user's recommended. i have mentioned some of them at here.

You can check out Phoenix Rock Gym. They have a huge facility specifically meant for rock climbing. The website which is Pogo Pass has some discounted passes for the Phoenix Rock Gym. If your looking to fix the rock wall maybe home depot would be a good start.

I'm looking for a new rock climbing shoes.A friend of mine recommended me on 'Copperhead Climbing Shoe'. Any experience with this shoe guys?


i think you should know ,choosing on Climbing is really a tricky decision .It more likely depends on the facts related with features to ensure comfort, proper fit, and security can facilitate any of these climbing types.
You should have mention your Experience on climbing but as you asked for specifically,
"Copperhead"
by Five Ten is a state-of-the-art design with a low profile toe that slips into tiny fissures. A Stealth patch adds durability and friction in all tight conditions.
But if you are a beginner on climbing , i would rather recommend you to go for " La Sportiva Mythos"
that will encourage you for discovering and enjoying the climbing sport. So, for those of you who can be interested to a rock climbing shoes,
Beside, if you are looking for an Expert one you can go for the
"La Sportiva Solution" which is a high-end shoe for climbing and bouldering. It is cost-effective for the features, performance and comfort it provides. It might be expensive but it is worth the value.

Sharping Ice Climbing Tools


Step1 Use a 10-inch Mill Bastard file, although you can get by with a shorter version. Put your ice climbing tools in a vise while sharpening to make the process easier. Step2 Stroke the file away from you. If you draw the file back toward you, it becomes dulled and less useful. Make your sharpening strokes smooth and even. Step3 Work on honing the flat surfaces into sharp points. Follow the existing points, and do not try to change their direction. Step4 Sharpen from the front of the tool to the back. This helps to maintain the points. Step5 Buy replacement points for your crampons. Filing eventually will wear down your ice climbing gear. Replacing the points will ensure you'll be able to dig into the ice and rock surfaces.

Should I wear a helmet when rock climbing?


I am a firm believer that helmets are a indispensable part of your climbing rack. If you are in a toppeler situation or bouldering it probably isn't super necessary because you aren't going to take the kinds of falls on your head. However, if you're doing any sort of lead climbing, I do believe that helmets are really serious.
