This wins our Editors' Choice award for best climbing package because it has the best stuff at a solid discount. Each item in the package scored highly and the package as a whole saves you 13 percent as opposed to buying everything separately. Even though it makes a great "intro" package, every item is also top of the line. The Corax harness is a favorite of rock climbing guides. The belay device is the lightest made and the carabiner is one of the most versatile. You won't outgrow any of this gear as you become a better climber.
However, this is the most expensive climbing package. It is $20 more expensive than the Black Diamond Momentum AL Package, which is a great buy. It is $40 more than the Black Diamond/Wild Country Package, which scored almost as high in the tests. The Petzl Corax Kit is a good option for trad climbing and could save you some money. It also will save you from having to track down all the individual items in the Black Diamond/Wild Country Package (they are not sold together). But if you want the best deal on some great gear, get the OutdoorGearLab Best Buy Package.
