Whether you are epicing up on El Cap, making careful steps in the alpine, or just buying your first harness, we have a deal for you. This week you can save on great gear from CAMP at Backcountry.com. Check out our recommendations below, or check out the climbing sale page for more options.
Energy CR Harness
$37.46 (25% off, was $49.95)
The Energy CR is designed to be an all-around harness, capable for gym, sport, and trad climbing. Adjustable leg loops help dial in fit whether you're in shorts or layered up for winter, and thermo-formed padding molds to your body for comfort. Four gear loops, a haul loop, and at just $37 right now, a price that's tough to beat.
Alpinist Universal Crampon
$175.96 (20% off, was $219.95)
This is a do-it-all crampon in that everything is adjustable. It can fit snowboard boots, ski boots, and boots with automatic or semi-automatic crampon attachments. There are settings for the front bail and two for the heel bail as well as three heel bail height settings. And the horizontal frontpoints can be swapped out when you want to take on more aggressive terrain.
Cassin Copper Heads
$9.71 (25% off, was $12.95)
While certainly not a common piece of climbing gear these days, copperheads are a staple of a hard aid climbers rack. These thin pieces of pro fit in 4mm to 10mm vertical seams that are too thin for nuts or cams. Any time you start placing copperheads, it's an aidventure.
Corsa Ice Axe
$101.96 (15% off, was $119.95)
This ice axe occupies a very specific niche—it is meant as a super lightweight option for hard neve snow or mellow glacier travel. At a scant 7.2 ounces, one reviewer called it "stupid light." It is not meant for steep climbing or ice. However, within the aforementioned niche, it excels and provides piece of mind without adding much weight to your pack.
HMS Belay Lock Carabiner
$18.71 (25% off, was $24.95)
Carabiners may be some of the simplest stuff on our racks, but all biners are not created equal—or made to serve the same purpose. This locking carabiner has a plastic gate that will prevent cross-loading when belaying. Not only that, but it is a solid yet light biner that will stand the test of time.
Gear Up Sling
$37.46 (25% off, was $49.95)
Gear loops aren't always the ideal place to store pro. In chimneys or offwidths, they can make your gear heard to reach, or worse, cause it to get in the way. Or sometimes, like on a big wall, you need more gear than your harness loops can carry. In these situations, a gear sling is the answer. This smart design by Cassin carries ample items, offers comfortable mesh padding, and best of all, can be separated into two individual gear slings.
Energy Harness Pack
$67.46 (25% off, was $89.95)
Consider this your climbing starter kit. Containing a harness, chalk bag, locking carabiner, and tube-style belay device, this is pack has everything you need to start toproping at the gym (well, besides shoes, chalk, and a gym pass) or climb outside with a more experienced partner.
Shell Belay Kit
$22.46 (25% off, was $29.95)
Don't quite need everything in the kit above (specifically, the harness and chalk bag)? The shell belay kit packages together a basic tube-style belay device with a screw-lock carabiner. It's a solid option for those just getting into single pitch climbing, or more-experienced climbers looking to pick up a new tuber on a budget.
