BLACK DIAMND GEAR ON SALE

 

Black Diamond Momentum Climbing Shoe – Women’s, 45% off — $44.95 $94.95

 

Black Diamond Momentum Climbing Shoe – Men’s, 45% off — $52.22 $94.95

 

Black Diamond’s Momentum Climbing Shoe balances comfort with performance so you can learn how to climb comfortably. Most climbing shoes opt for leather or synthetic leather uppers to keep durable throughout your rocky adventures. Black Diamond, on the other hand, made this shoe’s upper out of a unique knit that enhances breathability without hindering overall durability. This enhanced breathability also decreases the foul smells that standard leather climbing shoes excrete in your car, closet, or wherever you store your climbing shoes. Since this isn’t a leather or synthetic leather climbing shoe, the Momentum shouldn’t stretch as much as usual climbing shoes, and if this is your first pair of climbing shoes, you might want to consider getting this pair in your street shoe size even though your friends are telling you to size down. The NeoFriction rubber sole is also unique in that it’s molded—as opposed to the usual cutting from one sheet of rubber—to the shoe in order to increase longevity and ensure traction on greasy, plastic footholds.” — Backcountry

Black Diamond First Light Hybrid Hooded Jacket – Men’s, 50% off — $114.48 $228.95

“Wear it alone during an early season multi-pitch, or as a midlayer during a backcountry tour, either way the Men’s Black Diamond First Light Hybrid Hooded Jacket blends stretch performance with breathable warmth. Taking its First Light Jacket for a hybrid spin, Black Diamond uses the same Primaloft Silver to keep you warm from windswept ridge to snowy skin track, then adds merino wool blended panels for breathable stretch that lets you work hard without working up a sweat. The low-profile hood can be tucked beneath a helmet if the wind picks up, while a durable water repellent finish sheds light flurries if the weather takes an unexpected turn. And should the change in conditions favor the warm sun, the First Light Hybrid stuffs down into its own chest pocket, where it can be carabinered to your harness or pack till next it’s needed.” — BC

 

 

Black Diamond Stormline Stretch Rain Shell – Women’s, 45% off — $81.92 $148.95

“Far away, it looked like you could clearly see the distinction between the storm’s rain and the sunlight, but now that it’s overhead, you’re digging through your pack for the Black Diamond Women’s Stormline Stretch Rain Shell. Its BD.dry laminate is completely waterproof and breathable enough for the ascent, and the stretchy fabric moves with you up the mountain. Black Diamond gusseted the shell’s fit so you can climb without the harness pulling up and over your harness, and each underarm also features DWR-treated zippers that provide ventilation when you get warm.” — BC

Scarpa Vapor Climbing Shoe – Women’s 56% off — $76.23 $174.95

 

Scarpa Vapor Climbing Shoe – Men’s 50% off — $82.48 $174.95

“The Scarpa Vapor Climbing Shoe combines aggressive performance with smooth comfort for boulderers and sport climbers. Its suede and microfiber upper uses minimal stitching to eliminate hot spots, and the padded tongue enhances comfort on long climbs.

Vibram’s XS Edge rubber gives this shoe a good grip on granite edges, slippery limestone, and soft sandstone alike.” — BC

 

 

Scarpa Ribelle Tech OD Mountaineering Boot, 45% off — $294.97 $539.95

“There’s a fine line between moving light-and-fast and feeling like you’re alpine climbing completely barefoot, and the Scarpa Men’s Ribelle Tech OD Mountaineering Boot treads that line with a performance inspired by the late-and-great Ueli Steck. Scarpa’s new Sock-Fit Plus integrates waterproof, breathable OutDry and warm Primaloft insulation in a seamless, stretchy, superlight gaiter that balances fast-moving performance with absolute weather protection. The external upper is burly, rugged, and surprisingly well-ventilated. Underfoot, the Ribelle features a complex series of Vibram rubber lugs as well as a light, supportive midsole and compatibility for semi-automatic crampons.” — BC

 

Scarpa Booster S Climbing Shoe, 40% off — $113.97 $189.95

“Scarpa made the Men’s Booster S Climbing Shoe for anything overhung at the local gym, sport crag, or boulder field. It has the same aggressive downturn and sharp asymmetry as Scarpa’s Boostic Climbing Shoe, except Vibram’s XS Grip rubber gives this shoe as softer feel for more sensitivity and friction. It features a unique Tri-Tension randing system that prolongs the shoe’s downturn and pushes all the power directly to the toe for a technical performance. Expect the microsuede upper to stretch a half size to full size for a customized feel.” — BC

 

LA SPORTIVA CLIMBING GEAR ON SALE

 

La Sportiva Mythos Vibram XS Grip2 Climbing Shoe – Women’s, 65% off — $50.75 $145.00

“Tighten the around-the-heel lacing system of the La Sportiva Women’s Mythos Climbing Shoe and get an all-around, precise fitting shoe for climbing any rock in the canyon. The soft, unlined leather upper surrounds your foot with enough stretch to allow foot swelling during long multi-pitch routes, while the perforated arch and Dry-Best lined tongue help wick and vent excess foot sweat as you climb. For long belays and rests on big walls, the full-length LaspoFlex midsole adds strength and cushioning so you can reenergize before the crux. The Mythos’s medium-curved shape, pointed toe, and excellent edges allow superior grip on footholds of any shape or size thanks to the 4mm Vibram XS Grip2 outsole.” — BC

La Sportiva Baruntse Mountaineering Boot, 60% off — $250.00 $625.00

“For the cold, foreboding peaks of the world’s great ranges, La Sportiva created the sturdy, durable Men’s Baruntse Mountaineering Boot. With a PU-coated, two-layer insulating outer boot and a removable, thermo-moldable EVA inner boot, the Baruntse holds in warmth and blocks out snow and weather on high-altitude summit ridges and icy headwalls. A thermo-reflective aluminum layer in the shell helps conserve heat, and abrasion-resistant Cordura reinforcements on both the shell and inner boot hold up to rocky approaches and jagged alpine terrain.” — BC

 

La Sportiva Kataki Climbing Shoe – Women’s, 55% off — $78.75 $175.00

 

La Sportiva Kataki Climbing Shoe – Men’s, 50% off — $87.50 $175.00

“The Katana is undoubtedly one of La Sportiva’s many classic shoes due to its combination of all-day comfort and technical prowess, and the Otaki’s aggressive attitude tackles some of the toughest climbs out there. But where do you turn when you need a comfier shoe to climb long, tough routes like the last few pitches on Moonlight Buttress or basically every sport climb in Greece and Spain? The Kataki Climbing Shoe balances the Katana’s comfort with the Otaki’s aggression so you can jam into tight cracks, project overhangs, and spend a day at the boulder fields without ever taking the shoe off. It features La Sportiva’s tried-and-true P3 construction for long-lasting aggression, and the new S-Heel optimizes the fit so you can heel hook everything. The Vibram XS Grip2 sole has a stiffer feel than the Otaki, and it lasts a lot longer for climbers on a budget―which is basically every dedicated climber out there.” — BC

CAMP USA GEAR ON SALE

 

CAMP USA HMS 3Lock Carabiner, 50% off — $9.98 $19.95

“Climbers could argue whether the HMS 3Lock Carabiner is Camp USA’s safest locking carabiner all day.

This certainly adds a sense of security when you’re belaying a buddy, to you and the climber.” — BC

 

CAMP USA Gear Up Sling, 54% off — $22.80 $49.95

“The Metolius Gear Up Sling separates into two slings so your climbing partner can still carry half the load. Combined together, the Gear Up Sling positions trad racks a little better than the standard over-the-shoulder, especially when you’re carrying an abundance of big wall gear: cams, pitons, and alpine draws up the wazoo. There are adjustments at the rear connectors, sternum strap, and both gear slings to secure the fit for both you and your partner.” — BC

 

CAMP USA Air CR EVO Harness, 50% off — $44.98 $89.95

“Enjoy the lightweight versatility that Camp USA’s Air CR EVO Harness gives on all your climbs, whether they’re ice, rock, mixed, or alpine. Its Edge-Control Construction keeps the harness light enough for faraway adventures, yet cushy enough for long days in the vertical realm thanks to the EVA padding and breathable 3D air mesh. Auto-locking buckles keep you secure at both legs as well as the waist, and the No-Twist belay loop keeps the legs properly oriented for easy on-and-off.
