$30.98 (64% off, was $84.95)
Do your ankles run hot? Or do you just prefer to keep the bottom of your pants out of the way while you climb? These quick-drying nylon pants were designed with climbing in mind.

$17.48 (65% off, was $49.95)
This polyester t-shirt was created for both scurrying over talus fields and navigating chilly morning runs around the local park, with comfortable, moisture-wicking fabric. Best of all, it's only $17 right now. That's pretty hard to beat.

$40.48 (55% off, was $89.95)
This technical hoodie is designed for sunny days at the crag. It's durable, lightweight, and stretchy, ideal for milder days. Bonus: Keep your hands warm between burns in the ample kangaroo pocket—or use it to store snacks.
Backcountry Mantle Climbing Pant, Men’s
$51.73 (55% off, was $114.95)
These stretchy cordura pants are built tough for the pointiest and most uncomfortable offwidths, where a pair of everyday sensible slacks would likely tear on a crystal or burst at the seems. Built-in belt closure, ankle drawcords, and a zipper pocket round out the climber-friendly features.
Mountain Hardwear Kor Preshell Hooded Jacket, Women's
$51.98 (60% off, was $129.95)
The Kor Preshell Hooded Jacket is an ultralight piece designed for cool spring days. And we mean light. It comes in at a scant 4 oz. Yet it's still plenty capable at repelling wind and light rain without trapping too much heat. Plus, it backs down small into it's own pocket so you can store it out of the way easily when the conditions get too good.
Backcountry Grid Fleece Crew, Men's
$44.98 (50% off, was $89.95)
I'm gonna be real with you: grid fleece is the best kind of fleece for climbing. That's my opinion, and my opinion is that it's a fact. The grid pattern wicks and vents moisture well while still retaining heat. This grid fleece is made of polyester and spandex, making for a comfortable stretchy piece. Bonus: The fabric includes odor protection to keep it smelling fresh.
Black Diamond Six Shooter Tank Top, Women's
$35.72 (45% off, was $64.95)

Mountain Hardwear Kor Strata Climb Hooded Jacket, Men's
$89.98 (60% off, was $224.95)
This climbing-specific jacket is meant for the colder ends of the shoulder season. It's got Pertex Quantam Air nylon ripstop fabric so you can accidentally grind your shoulder blade across abrasive stone without tearing it to shreds. It's got primaloft gold insulation to keep you warm while still packing down small. It's got a low-profile hood so you can wear a helmet over it.
