Review: Rocky Talkies

Publish date:

These CBs are made for us multi-pitch climbers who’ve grown tired of yelling, “Off belay?!” They’re compact at 16.2 x 5.9 x 2.7cm (think old flip phone) and have a shatterproof screen and thermoplastic covering, making them tough enough to clip anywhere during your next chimney grovel. The 121 channels reach 1–5 miles in the backcountry, which proved true while new-routing in Kolob Canyons. And the batteries didn’t need a recharge after three days of use.

$90 (each),
