Advice on buying gear.

We have had quite a few new, young climbers join the club lately, some have started to buy gear and I’m always being asked the million (well not quite that much) dollar question; what gear do I need?

This can be broken down into:

Beginner Kit (Indoor Climbing)

Novices – Outdoor 2nd’ing routes only

Novice Leader – Outdoor (Sport)

Novice Leader – Outdoor (Trad)

Additional Items – for when you are advancing up the grades.

These are my thoughts, but if anyone has others please let me know and I can update these lists.

Here is a list of shops that I have used over the last 3 years.
