Roundup of Recent Climbing Gear Reviews

by Tom Markiewicz on February 4, 2009

Months ago, I wrote how I thought it would be beneficial for the entire climbing community to read more gear reviews on the web. I’ve started to see many more since then and it’s a great trend. In the spirit of encouraging even more gear reviews, I decided to compile some of the recent ones here.

Splitter Choss reviews the new Petzl Reverso 3 belay device as well as the DMM Offset Nuts.

Online Climbing Coach takes a look at Clyde Soles new book, Training for Peak Performance.

The Colorado Mountain School reviews the La Sportiva Miura VS climbing shoes, the La Sportiva Trango Extreme Evo Light, the Black Diamond C3 Camalot, and the Marmot Ion Windshirt.

Dream in Vertical reviews the women’s Patagonia Plush Pants and a great overall review of several brands and models of climbing ropes.

Rock Climber Girl writes up the Red Chili Corona VCRs.

ClimbingNarc reviews Dosage V and the new climbing iPhone app, Spraycaster.

Koan Bouldering reviews the Five Ten Dragon and the Evolv Optimus Prime climbing shoes.

GetOutdoors examines the Wild Country Elite Syncro Ziplock harness.

Finally, has a roundup post of some new gear from the recent Outdoor Retailer show that includes the La Sportiva Speedster shoes, harnesses from Black Diamond, new Edelrid ropes, and the Five Ten Project shoes.
