Gear Up To Go!

One of the most important aspects of climbing believe it or not is how we dress for each occasion. There is nothing worse than being under-dressed on a chilly day‚ trying to step up to an unreachable foothold in super tight blue-jeans or being stuck in a sticky and wet cotton shirt all day long. These are just some of the small examples of what SAN LLC would like to help you avoid in order to make your outing with us ideal.

SAN LLC has come up with some suggestions and lists based on the Korean climate and seasons to help guide you in the right direction. Don’t be discouraged from coming out and signing up with SAN LLC if you don’t have everything. For the spring and autumn seasons‚ the most important thing is that you dress in loose and comfortable clothing‚ as if you were going for a short hike.
