Rock climbing and mountaineering are sports for adventurous spirits. Rock climbing is a sport that tests your limits and your endurance. Mountaineering requires patience with yourself and what you are climbing. When you have patience you can reap the most benefit from a climb. Rock climbers also need to be safe on their adventures, so safety equipment like rock climbing shoes, harnesses and helmets are necessary. Climbing is fun and exciting and the best climbers map out the terrain they climb and plan what they need to take with them to be safe. Dependable brands like Scarpa, Camp and Black Diamond Equipment make climbing equipment to keep you safe wherever your next adventure may take you.
