Places like Mountain Gear and REI sell little packages of gear that they consider to be essential to get you started in say sport climbing or big walls or bouldering. Basically they bundle together gear than an idiot with half a brain would know to buy and give you a 2% discount. Don’t get me wrong, I think this is wonderful. Unfortunately, this kits don’t contain the small, yet essential accessories you need to look and talk like everybody else at the Buttermilks.
|Dreads: Growing your hair out is a pain in the ass. If you want instant cred among the boulders, just clip these fake dreads to your noggin, and BAM you instantly look more in tune with the energy of the rocks. Peppering you sentences with words like “chakra” “centered” and “mudra” couldn’t hurt either.
|WEED: Boulderers talk about weed the way most people talk about March Madness. If you want entrance to 70% of the conversations in Hueco, Bishop or RMNP, you’re going to have to know your Northern Lights from your Pineapple Express. A subscription to high times should put you well on your way.
|The Camcorder: At some point in every boulderers career, they decide they are the third Cohen Brother. If you want to look like you really know what you’re doing, get your paws on this badboy from Cannon.
