Update: While Cyber Monday is technically over, a new round of sales have launched under the Après Cyber banner. We've updated the list below accordingly.
While Cyber Monday sounds like a lesser-known sequel to the 1992 film Lawnmower Man and is generally associated with electronics sales, there are, in fact, great sales on climbing gear today at Backcountry.com. Check out some highlights below.

BlueWater Lightning Pro 9.7mm Climbing Rope
$152.96, 60m (25% off, was $203.95)
The Lightning Pro is a versatile rope, prefect for projecting sport climbs or climbing multipitch routes. At 9.7mm it finds a nice middle ground between durability and weight. It won't wear out from extended toprope sessions on your project, and it won't weigh you down when you go for the send burn, either. Bonus: The bright pink or pink and green bipattern colors are rad!
CAMP USA Photon Express KS Quickdraw 6-Pack
$104.96 (25% off, was $139.95)
The Photon Express KS Quickdraw features a straight gate on the bolt side and a bent gate on the rope side, for ease of clipping on both. They have a keylock nose to reduce snagging on your clothes when grasping for a draw and on bolts when cleaning. It is a lightweight and durable draw that is a great addition to any rack.
Metolius Ultralight Master Cam
$44.96 (25% off, was $59.95)
When every ounce counts, you can't go wrong with the Ultralight Master Cams. The largest size (pictured) weighs just 4.5 ounces and the smallest goes down to a scant 1.6 ounces. But they don't sacrifice function. Our tester said: “The action was really smooth, and I had reliable, solid placements with every type of fissure and pod—and a lighter pack to boot." Bonus: They're all made right here in the U.S.A.

It has thick Stealth C4 rubber outsoles for long lasting stiffness that maintains traction on everything from limestone pockets to sandstone buckets. Ideal for steep routes and boulders, this shoe is made for performance climbing.
La Sportiva Spantik Mountaineering Boot
$581.25 (25% off, $775)
The Spantik Mountaineering Boot is designed by the experts at La Sportiva for climbing 6,000- to 7,000-meter peaks. They have step-in crampon compatibility, and the agility to send hard ice and mixed pitches in between snowy slogs. The insulated footbed and triple-layer midsole means underfoot comfort, and the thermo-molded inner boot and micro-cellular insulation will keep your feet warm on said slogs.
Edelrid Jay/Jayne Harness
$44.96 (25% off, was $59.95)
The Jay and Jayne harnesses are among the most comfortable you can get for the price, that's thanks to a high level of adjustability. The clever design allows the padding to slide around the waist strap, allowing you to position it so that it's centered. Adjustable leg loops add to the versatility, and ample and thoughtfully designed padding makes this harness a strong contender no matter your goal.
