Climbing Shoes Reviews

Climbing shoes are important to even start talking about a serious hobby in rock climbing. The right fit, brand and comfort of the climbing shoe for your daily use. If your shoe is too loose, too downheel or tight, these can impede how much more progress you can make climbing, so its important to consider these carefully. Here’s sharing my thoughts on whats best for indoor bouldering, lead climbing or outdoor climbing in Asia.

Climbing Harness Review

Climbing harness are about look 😉 And of coz safety and price too.
There are many brands out there, colours, little features and fits. But if you ask me I am not as picky with this as compared to shoes and climbing pants. But I still have some favourites of coz.

My Recommendations
TIP: Get one that is relatively comfortable when you sit on it, has adjustable leg loops and in terms of colour, try to pick one that is not too light colour if not when it gets dirty- it shows really quickly.
PRICE: Price should be mid to high range between US$50 – U$120
BRANDS: Arcyteyx/ Petzl/ Black Diamond


Climbing Gadgets Reviews

When it comes to belay devices and quickdraws, all that matters a lot to me is safety and reliability. I was happy with the usually ATC and Carabiner when it comes to gym climbing as it is very smooth to use as long as you know how to belay well and catch a fall when your climber lead climbs.

However, for extra safety and safeguard, there are Assisted Braking Devices (ABD) and Petzl Grigris that are great choices for you, especially when you are climbing in Singapore gyms (regulations to using an ordinary ATC and Carabiner).

My Recommendations
TIP: Grigris are really convenient and safe for outdoor climbing and lead climbing. But they costs a bit more. If you want something basic and also extra safe without spending too much, the ABDs are a good choice.
PRICE: Price should be mid to high range between US$30 -US$90
BRANDS: Petzl Grigri/ Mammut Smart Belay


 Climbing Rope Reviews

Rope is really not an everyday purchase, and if you do invest in one, you want the best. I always go for quality/ brand and ‘colour’ 😀 It matters to get a nice beautiful rope colour ok!

My Recommendations
TIP: Safety is key, followed by brand. I do like beautiful bright colour rope that is soft to use as well.
PRICE: Price should be mid to high range between US$30 -US$90
BRANDS: Mammut, Petzl, Sterling, Blue Water
