One of the things I love about Bouldering is you don't really have to have a whole lot of gear with you. I try to stay as minimal as possible which makes the gear I do take with me that much more important. Just bring the essentials, a few good buds, and you'll be good to go. Although, you've got to have a sense of adventure, too. Especially when searching for new places you've never been to like we did on a recent bouldering trip around the California coast. We spent entire days looking for a specific rock that we found vague directions to online. That's just part of the fun and you just have to embrace it!
Here are a few of my go-to pieces of gear that I always throw in the car when I'm heading out for a bouldering adventure.
The New Primal Spicy Jerky
I've always loved jerky. I mean, who doesn't?! It's the top of the list when I go shopping for any kind of trip. The New Primal has some really great jerky snacks and they're my go-to brand when looking for jerky. Spicy jerky is the best - I love that little bite!
