4 Gadgets to Pack on Your Next Climbing Trip

Wherever you’re heading on your next adventure, you’ll want to ensure you’re prepped for anything. While waterproof clothing, ropes, helmets and harnesses might be climbing essentials, there are a variety of gadgets that can enhance your experience. To find out what you need, take a look at these four gadgets to pack on your next climbing trip:

1. Smartphone or Tablet

It’s vital to have a functional method of communication when you’re going climbing, so a smartphone or tablet should really be on your list of ‘must-take’ gadgets. However, the right device can also ensure that you have a compass and map with you, which will come in handy when you’re exploring new areas.

In addition to this, most smartphones and tablets have in-built cameras, so you can take pictures of your adventures and even share them with friends and family while you’re on the go. What’s more – you can use your smartphone or tablet for entertainment in between climbs. From watching a movie and listening to music to playing at Ruby Fortune Casino or posting on social media, you’ll never get bored when you have a smartphone or tablet to hand. 

2. Mobile Hotspot

Depending on where your next climbing destination is, you might find that there’s no internet connectivity or cellphone coverage. Fortunately, this doesn’t have to stop you connecting with the world while you’re traveling off the beaten path. 

A mobile hotspot acts as your very own internet connection, no matter where you are. While you’ll need to ensure you choose a provider that offers extensive coverage even in remote areas, taking a mobile hotspot with you on your travels will ensure that you can access the internet in any location. 

3. Water Filter Bottle

When it comes to potentially life-saving gadgets, a water filter bottle is certainly at the top of the list. Capable of filtering water, these bottles mean you can fill up at lakes, streams and rivers and enjoy clean drinking water. Do check the specifications of each bottle in advance, so you know exactly what type of water it can filter. 

If you don’t want to carry heavy bottles of water on your climbing trip, a bottle with a built-in water filter is exactly what you’re looking for. Plus, you’ll have peace of mind that you won’t run out of water if you veer off your intended route or your trip gets extended for any reason. 

4. Portable Charger

If you’re going to take any gadgets with you on your next climbing trip, you’ll need to have a means of charging them. A power bank, or portable charger, makes it easy to do just this. Depending on the model you choose, you’ll be able to recharge your devices again and again, so you’ll never have to worry about running out of power. 

Planning Your Next Adventure

Whether you’re an experienced climber or a complete novice, choosing the right location can ensure your climbing trips go without a hitch. With a little preparation and research, you can plan a climbing adventure that’s memorable for all the right reasons!
