As winter winds down, rock climbers emerge from their cavernous climbing gyms in search of springtime sending temps. Nearly all of the best climbing areas in the United States are in season through March, April, and May. As prime conditions settle into the Red River Gorge, Joshua Tree, and every crag in between, now’s the time to plan your next glorious road trip.

For retailers like REI and Huckberry, ski gear and winter apparel remains the primary focus in February. With that said, now’s a good time to score some excellent deals on out-of-season climbing gear. From technical equipment to apparel, check out the following discounted products and update your climbing kit for less.

La Sportiva Muira VS — Women’s & Men’s: $50 Off

La Sportiva recently announced that its longstanding Muira VS will receive an update in 2023. We’re excited to get our hands on this reinvented classic, but for now, the original version is available at a heavy discount. If you’ve climbed in the first-generation VS for years, this is a good opportunity to stock up before the new model takes over. Or, if you’re simply looking for an excellent deal on quality shoes, you can’t go wrong with the OG VS for $50 off.

Aggressively downturned with a pointed toe, the Muira VS is well-known for its prowess on very small footholds. Back in 2012, Adam Ondra used a single right-footed VS on his first ascent of Terranova (V16).

Mountain Hardwear Alpine Light 35 L Pack: $110 Off

I recently tested the Alpine Light 35L pack from Mountain Hardwear during a late-season attempt to climb the Grand Teton. Though wet weather eventually thwarted our summit push, the contents of the Alpine Light remained perfectly dry.

For a minimalist ultralight pack, the Alpine Light is surprisingly roomy and durable. Its main compartment has room for short overnight trips, and it could certainly double as a light-and-fast thru-hiking pack.

The Alpine Light’s primary purpose is alpine climbing. From ice axe lash points to a rope-securing top flap, it’s a solid choice for alpine trad or ski mountaineering. Currently, the pack is available for $110 off at REI.


Relwen Windzip Hoodie: $90 Off

Relwen’s Windzip Hoodie isn’t specifically made for rock climbing, but its unique feature set makes it well-equipped for shoulder season multipitch adventures. A lightweight hoodie with an athletic fit, the Windzip should prove breathable and stretchy.

The two-way front zipper comes in handy while belaying, and the elastic-rimmed storm hood fits over a low-profile climbing helmet. The tricot knit liner is cozy against the skin, though it can get sweaty in the afternoon sun. Huckberry is currently offering the Windzip in the Bright Olive color for $90 off retail.
