Climbers are a picky bunch. Buying gifts for a climber can be tricky, especially when you have a vague idea about climbing (they climb rocks, right?)
...but, seeing that special someone light up over a thoughtful gift does make agonising over presents worthwhile.
Whether they're passionate climbers or a trusty belayer, our staff have hand picked a few gifts for each adventurer in your life.
A lot of climbing gear is personal, technical and considered safety equipment. So unless you’ve heard them say “I wish I had… ” Sometimes the perfect gift is the one they can pick themselves.
The gym climber likes gifts that give them more climbing mileage: more skin for the fingers, more rubber for the shoes, and enough chalk for the send.
Is climbing about becoming stronger or do they complain about being sore? Here's how you could help them reach their potential: hangboards, recovery equipment, and finger strength.
Inspire their sense of adventure with books and nifty new equipment. A slackline to make new friends at the campsite, books about climbing, and hammocks to jump into on your rest days.
The trickiest adventurer of all. Most outdoor climbers will have the equipment they need to go outdoors, but that doesn’t mean they have everything and some covert missions into their gear cupboard might help unveil what they need (or even better, just ask them!). If you're still unsure, our recommendation is to grab a gift card instead.
A present to unwrap under the tree is always the best for kids. It may be difficult to choose the correct size until they’re fitted for the equipment, so hold off on harnesses but shoes can be exchanged. Here’s a few stocking stuffers and shoes to spark joy on the special day.
