Climbing gear at REI

Rock and mountain climbing can be an adrenaline rush, a unique outdoor experience, an excuse to explore gorgeous places, or all of the above—not to mention one heck of a workout! Same goes for bouldering. You don’t have to be outdoors to climb, of course; for some, gym climbing can offer a convenient supplement or alternative to the usual gym routine. Before your next vertical outing, venture to REI to stock up on everything from climbing shoes, climbing pants, climbing harnesses and chalk bags from top brands like Petzl, Five Ten and Black Diamond. Whether you’re a brand-new bouldering fan or a big-wall aficionado, we’re here to meet all your climbing gear needs.
