GIFT IDEAS FOR ROCK CLIMBERS
WHY ARE CLIMBERS SO HARD TO BUY GIFTS FOR?
This is because there are a few types of climbing, and the different equipment that may be required for that specific type of climbing is a very personal choice.
For example there is:
- Sport Climbing
- Traditional Climbing
- Solo Climbing
- Aid Climbing
- Deep Water Solo Climbing
- Via Ferrata Climbing
The one thing in common with all the above types of climbing is that they all require lots of strength. Other common things would be climbing shoes and harnesses which are size specific,where personal choice is often the deciding factor when it comes to the purchase of these essential rock climbing items. In addition to these personal preferences, many climbing shops/ sporting equipment retailers will not accept returns for safety equipment and shoes,even if the item is an incorrect fit due to the critical nature of the climbing equipment.
THE BEST GIFTS FOR CLIMBERS
Training equipment makes for the perfect gift because all climbers need to have an ultra strong core, grip and upper body strength.
Beginner climbers need to build lots of strength, and expert climbers always need that little bit more to progress to the next grade.
Climbers always love training gifts because they know they want to train more but always end up spending their money on safety equipment. At Club Strong we have made gift buying for rock climbers or anyone who wants to improve their strength by producing a list of our products perfect for this festive season!
Any climber will love one of our unique Club Strong products, not just because it’s training equipment, but because they are all works of art. Most climbers are aware that plastic is bad and our gift list products are made out of mostly sustainable wood and recyclable products.
