Caving VS Climbing - Equipment to Buy

by

If you are looking to get involved in a new hobby, climbing and caving are two that shouldn’t be ignored. Depending on where live and the area that surrounds you, you should decide between caving or climbing. Some lucky adventurists are blessed with the best of both worlds! If you have to choose between caving and climbing and which rope access equipment to buy, here are some helpful tips.

As you can probably imagine, caving usually takes place in a colder, wetter and darker place than climbing. Climbing can happen inside a cave, but in most circumstances, climbing will take place in a dry area that is out in the open. To differ between which rope access gear to buy, ask yourself a couple questions.

  1. Are you afraid of heights? Caving could be more your thing if this is the case.
  2. Do you get claustrophobic? Climbing is more out in the open, with a lesser chance of being in a tight, claustrophobic environment.

Depending on the answers to the above questions, have you decided which sport you would rather start with? If Caving was your answer, you have come to the right place to find all of the caving equipment you could ever dream of!
