At its core, bouldering is a fairly simple endeavor. Shoes, chalk and a crash pad are all that’s required. But a handful of choice essentials can make your experience out at the crag infinitely better. A hand file and hand cream can help make sure your digits are in top shape for a full day of climbing. A headlamp can allow you to push for those few extra attempts on your project after the sun goes down. But keeping these items handy can be an issue, as they are easily forgotten on the counter at home. A rugged storage box stashed in the back of your truck can help keep everything organized and at the ready.
14 Gear Essentials for a Weekend of Bouldering
Yeti’s LoadOut GoBox 30 is the ultimate in gear storage solutions. It’s watertight, made of the same high-grade plastic that the Tundra coolers are made of and is built to be stackable — in case you need a couple of them to store gear kits for multiple pursuits. Its gasket seal is also particularly adept at keeping climbing odors inside and preventing them from overtaking your car. The high durometer rubber feet keep it from sliding all over the place and the Divider, Caddy and Pack Attic keep everything organized and in its place for easy access.
