Packing for a day of climbing can be difficult, so I wanted to give you some insight on what I like to keep in my bag for a day on the rocks.
1. Climbing gear
Of course, your climbing gear is the most important aspect of what’s in your climbing bag. For me, this usually consists of my shoes, chalk bag, brush, and extra chalk (you never want to be working your project and run out!).
I have friends who can go climbing without bringing anything to eat or drink for the day. For me, I definitely need to be hydrated and well fed. Some of my favorite foods to bring are lunchmeat, fruit (usually bananas, apples, or grapes), carrots, and protein powder so I can mix up a quick protein shake.
3. Extra Clothes
Depending on where you are going climbing, the weather can change throughout the day, or storms can quickly appear. No matter where you’re going it’s always helpful to bring a light sweatshirt and an extra pair of shorts/pants. Even if the weather behaves, sometimes it’s nice to change into clean clothes for the drive home at the end of the day.
4. Personal Care Items*
As a female, it’s always a good idea to bring some personal care items when you’re out climbing. Personally, I like to bring something from the Playtex® Sport® Pads, Liners and Combo Pack. With two varieties of Sport Level Protection®, nothing can get in the way of my climbing day.

5. Exercise Bands
Warming up properly when you are climbing outside can be difficult. Having a proper warm up is not just important for sending hard, but important for injury prevention as well. Being able to use something other than just the rock to warm up is especially helpful on colder climbing days. I like to have a few exercise bands in my bag so I can do some light exercises to warm up.
Now you have a quick peak inside of my climbing bag. I hope that this post gives you some inspiration on what to pack for your next adventure!
Now…on to the next adventure…
