Evolv Phantom Climbing Shoe
$147.96 (20% off, was $184.95)
Did you watch Daniel Woods send America’s hardest boulder problem, Sleepwalker, V17? If so, you probably know that he was wearing the Phantom, Evolv’s premier bouldering shoe. These are by no means an all-around boot; they’re aggressively downturned and very sensitive; but they’re a great addition to the quiver for those of you climbing in the steeps.
Mammut Boulder Chalk Bag
$17.97 (40% off, was 29.95)
This chalk pot is designed for extended trips into the boulders. Its shape makes it sturdy on unstable ground, and the over-the-top (literally) closure system makes you less likely to loose your chalk. It also has zippered pockets for tape and brushes.
Evolv Magic Climbing Hand Tape
$6.36 (20% off, was $7.95)
Needless to say, taping isn’t the most fun part of climbing—but sometimes it’s what lets us climb. Evolv’s medical-grade tape is water-resistant and self-adherent. This means two things. First: it’s not going to loosen when you sweat. Second, unlike most athletic tapes, it sticks to itself rather than your skin, so it won’t yank the hair from the backs of your fingers when you pull it off.

$195.46 (15% off, was $229.5)
Super-thin, light-weight ropes are nice and all—they’re easy to clip with and won’t flog your legs on long approaches—but they’re not for all situations.
