Climbing Gear Basics.

Kiefer and I have been wanting to get into rock climbing for a while now. With us living in the mountains on Vancouver Island, now is the best time to start! So we swung over to the closest Atmosphere store to assemble our collection of basic climbing necessities.

The Sales Associate helping us had lots of previous climbing experience indoors and outdoors, and in multiple countries, so he made sure we had all scenarios covered.
