Beginner Rock Climbing Packages
These are the beginner rock climbing starter kits that are perfect to jump-start your climbing career. Take a look at the rest of the beginner gear we recommend for climbing.
Black Diamond Momentum Harness Package
The momentum package is an excellent choice for new climbers heading to the wall for the first time. A comfortable harness is absolutely essential, and the Momentum will secure you as you progress in your climbing career to lead climbing and beyond.
The Momentum Harness package also comes with a belay device, a locking carabiner, a chalk bag, and chalk, all of which are must-have items when you’re dangling off the deck.
Black Diamond Big Air XP Package
If you already have a harness and chalk bag, then the Black Diamond Big Air XP Package is for you. This package comes with a locker and belay device.
Black Diamond is known for their belay device called the ATC. By the way, did you know what ATC stands for Air Traffic Controller? The name originated from the funny folks at Black Diamond since you literally control the person hanging in the air! They’re also known as tube-style belay devices.
Petzl Corax Kit
The Petzl Corax Kit is another fantastic beginner option. This package gives you everything you need to start climbing: chalk bag, chalk sock, harness and hardware. Petzl has been crafting world-famous mountaineering gear in France since 1975.

Frequently Asked Questions
What gear do I need for rock climbing?
Climbing shoes and a chalk bag is all you need to get started bouldering at a gym! My typical climbing rack will depend on the style of climbing I’m doing. But my climbing shoes and chalk bag are always included.
What gear do I need to rappel?
Rappeling requires a harness, locking carabiner, rappel device, and a backup. For a back up I will use a sterling hollowblock and create a friction hitch to act as a third hand. My rappel kit also includes a nylon sling that can extend my rappel device away from my body
Is climbing gear expensive?
Climbing gear has upfront costs, but in the long run, it is much cheaper than skiing or mountain biking. Once you have all of your gear, you won’t need to pay for expensive lift tickets or tune ups. Some climbing areas may charge a permit for day use, but that may be $20 compared to a $110 lift ticket for a day of skiing.
