Few, if any, outdoor sports combine discipline, courage, patience and strength like technical climbing does. Traditional climbing, sport climbing, ice routes, mixed rock and ice and pure alpine summiting all make demands on your mind and body. If you love the feeling of quiet, focused moments in the mountains, check out our selection of climbing equipment and apparel to get there cheaper.
Experienced climbers require dependable nylon climbing ropes, ice axes, climbing harnesses, crampons and other tools of the trade. We carry a broad selection of gear from companies like Black Diamond and Camp. Be sure to buy new items quickly, as all our climbing equipment sells out fast because of our incredibly low prices.
Whether you are climbing boulders, rock, ice, or city walls, feet are the foundation for all successful ascents. Sierra Trading Post has a great variety of technical shoes for every type of climbing: approach shoes, climbing slippers, mountaineering boots and more. Asolo, La Sportiva, Scarpa, Salomon and Vasque are just a few of the great brands Sierra Trading Post offers at discount prices. Check us first before you make an investment in technical climbing footwear.
Climbing comfort where your feet meet the boot is very important. We have the finest socks from Bridgedale, Rhoner and Smartwool so your hard-working feet don't have to suffer.
At Sierra Trading Post we offer many brands of technical outerwear with waterproof breathable Gore-Tex® protection from, Cloudveil, Marmot, Mountain Hardwear, Outdoor Research, Patagonia, Sierra Designs and many other top-quality outdoor specialists. We also offer a wide variety of soft shell jackets and pants for active ascents in colder weather.
Cold nights won't disturb your sleep if you have a premium down or synthetic sleeping bag. Which is best? Choose a down sleeping bag for a lighter weight and a smaller pack volume. Pick a synthetic when there is a good chance that the bag will get wet, or if you have a tighter budget, since synthetic sleepers are generally less expensive than down bags. At Sierra Trading Post we carry sleeping bags from Gregory, Marmot, Mountainsmith, Sierra Designs and other big-name brands.
A lightweight, packable, rugged tent that is quick to set-up is necessary for the avid climber. If you require a four-season, expedition-quality tent for extreme alpine snow and winds, Sierra Trading Post has the best of brands like The North Face, Marmot, ALPS and more. If you simply need a lightweight shelter for warm-weather trekking or the occasional night under the stars, we have you covered there, too. Whatever you require of tents, tarps or tent footprints, Sierra Trading Post has something for every climber.
A source of light is a very important piece of safety equipment. No matter your type of climbing, Sierra Trading Post carries a wide variety of lights, from the simplest torches to the most advanced LED headlamps for extreme sports and mountaineering.
