How to get into climbing
Climbing equipment: This is what you need for climbing
Basic equipment for climbing
What belongs in the climbing backpack? Here is a brief overview of which climbing accessories you need for climbing gardens or in the hall.
Climbing shoes = slicks
Slicks (in this case the cozy ones) - (c) Anne Gabl
Yes, they really do exist. These supermen who wedge their feet into slicks that are three to four shoe sizes too small. But you have actually already learned that from Cinderella. "Guru. Guru. There is blood in the shoe! ´ “More and more manufacturers are asking their buyers to buy shoes in their street shoe size. Yes, they have to be tight. And no, you couldn't dance all night at a ball with no slicks. But as a beginner you should definitely buy more comfortable climbing shoes that can be used both in the hall and on the rock. You can find a good insight into the models here.
Naturefriends Austria, for example, have put together an overview of the various belay devices for sport climbing. The Austrian Alpine Association has also developed its own recommendation here: Download.
Expressen and Chalkbag - (c) Anne Gabl
Usually a hip belt in sport climbing. The climbing harness should best be bought from a specialist shop. Then with the right advice you can quickly find someone who fits well. You can find a good overview here.
You should also get yourself
- Quickdraws and carabiners: I would recommend 10 pieces to start with. You should have at least 2 screw carabiners. Here is a good forum post on the topic.
- Rope (and rope bag): A single rope is used for use in the climbing hall or in the climbing garden. The diameter here is usually from 8.9 to 11 millimeters with a rope length between 50-70m.
- helmet (for outdoor use in the climbing garden, not in the hall)
- Chalk bag / magnesium bag: Against the sheer anticipation of getting your hands wet and for increased friction, a magnesium bag is placed on the hip. I like the ones from Chillaz, a Tyrolean company.
When the equipment is packed, where can you find good routes?
The Climbers Paradise group is quite unique in the Alps. Good topos, approaches, etc. to the best climbing gardens (sport climbing, bouldering), indoor climbing halls and via ferrata in the Tyrolean mountains.
