Brock's Bio

Started climbing around five years ago. As a Louisiana native, the only climbing around was a little over 6 hours away (HCR,Sam's Throne,HP40). I've Spent the last four summers traveling around and I found myself in Yosemite, Moab, Flagstaff, and all points in between. I lean towards harder, shorter trad routes and get off on the mental game/physical shape mash-up necessary for such climbs. I have a degree in GIS(geographic information science) and hope to make a move to the mountains soon.

Excellent extra little energy boosters while out in the backcountry or while running trails or road. Pick and choose from the two servings per package without having to worry about messy gel packets or something too dry. Some electrolyte replacement as well which is a nice little perk. Overall excellent choice for an added boost whenever and wherever you need it.

I use these for anchoring and any other applications where longer slings are necessary(also work nicely as a light gear sling). Better than toting around old school wide tubular webbing and gives a little more sense of security than newer ultralight spectra slings. Good median and they still look really good after a good bit of use.

This was my main gear bag for my first few years of climbing and it was perfect. Rather than having to dig through a top opening pack, you just lay it out and unzip it and have access to all of your gear. Seems like a pretty durable material, but it is pretty thin (which also means lighter.) No support whatsoever, so you may have a stray cam jabbing you in the back every now and then, but I always tried to place softgoods at the very bottom to provide a little cushion. Straps are also really thin and offer little in ways of support. I still use this bag to store anything that I am not taking in my main climbing pack.

If there is one locking biner to end all, this is it! My go to for anything that needs to be bomber without giving it a second thought. This or the William are always on my harness for anchoring. The gate action, after years of use are still like new. I would buy these over any other large locking 'biners anyday.

My main harness at the moment. Purchased about a year ago as an upgrade from the focus al. I prefer the fitted leg loops, but I also do not do ice climbing, so layers are not a factor for me most of the time. If not planning on layering often, the sizing actually runs a little large and you should try this on in a store if possible before ordering. Pretty good comfort, but not the greatest in long hanging belays. I plan to upgrade again, but at the moment I am enjoying this harness.

Won this as a festival door prize, so I can't complain about the price. Fit is very shallow and tends to ride up on your head. I find myself going for my cheap acrylic cheapo beanie before this thing. If you are willing to drop this much change on a beanie, pick up some nice wool handmade job!
