We’d also like to remind everyone that while this show is meant to be fun, entertaining, and informative it is not intended to replace proper, in-depth training. Manufacturer’s instructions must also be followed and reviewed before any fall protection equipment is used. And proper training should be received before operating any equipment or before climbing.

Why Do You Climb?

We’d like to hear from you about why YOU climb. Email us a voice message at gearup@gearexperts.com about why you climb and what climbing means to you for a chance to be featured on the show – and win some swag of course.
