Once you have bought your mountain climbing gear you then need to carry it very carefully till you get to the top of the rock and to facilitate this, you may need to clip a few things to your harness while also carrying the lighter items in your pockets, though of course the number of items you can carry in this way will be rather limited. In fact, there are many rock climbers who have found it better to use special backpacks in which to hold all their essential items.
Besides climbing shoes, you will also need to use other mountain climbing gear such as gloves, ropes, harnesses, belay devices, racks, karabiners, helmets as well as axes, ATC and headlamps as well as many more items which you will probably choose according to your needs. Obviously, you will also want to include food and water as well as sunglasses, sun block, first aid kit and camera, and tent and cookware. Among the special items of training equipment you need to have are grip savers, campus boards, fingerboards and even a knife.
Since this first trip, we have gone climbing many timesboth at the indoor gym near us and back outdoors at the Gunksand Mason has enthusiastically embraced his newfound identity as a climber. When were out at the park near our home, Mason brings his little rope and gear and strategically plots the route to the top of whatever \"mountain\" he is climbing, no matter how big or small. And although that first trip started as a way to introduce our son to a sport we love, weve since seen the other benefits climbing has brought to him. Climbing has given Mason a newfound sense of confidencethe confidence that comes from overcoming your fearof the unknown, of failure, of taking risksand pushing yourself to try something new and then achieve. Its also given him a greater well of resilience that has spilled over into other areas of his lifeto work at things that are hard, to overcome small failures, and to relish in the challenge. For a shy little boy like Mason, these benefits have been unexpectedly meaningful and rewarding. At school, his teachers have seen him come out of his shell and become a more social and vocal member of his class. Although this is due to more than just climbing, I cant help but believe that the confidence hes gained through climbing has played a big part. As I think about our next outdoor adventurethis time traveling to Colorado, one of our favorite places in the worldI think about the proud smile of my son, standing next to my husband, on the top of the highest mountain in the world that day.
