Climbers have always been a source of inspiration for BÉAL. In 1977, the French free climber. Patrick Edlinger, a legend in the climbing world, placed his trust in us when we were just starting our adventure. He embodied the beauty and purity of outdoor climbing. This sport, a “dance” with the cliffs as he liked to say, has attracted many followers, widening its appeal over the following decades. A popularity that could not have happened without the developments in climbing equipment.
Let’s check out the essentials for climbing a rock face!
If in a gym, the ropes are already in place, this is not the case on the cliff. So, you will have to choose a climbing rope to use on your outings, you’ve come to the right place, we are number 1 in this field! We have developed three ranges of climbing ropes, suitable for all levels and uses.
Active Line is a range for all types of climbers. For those who switch between the gym and the rock face, for both beginners and advanced climbers who like to climb in good weather!
Intensive Line is a range that will delight the more experienced climbers. Resistant to humidity thanks to the Dry Cover treatment, the ropes are also more flexible, more compact and lighter.
Mountain Line is a range of ropes that have been developed for climbing in more difficult weather conditions. They are particularly suitable for mountaineering or glacier climbing.
Quickdraws are the second essential piece of climbing equipment for your outdoor trip. A set usually consists of a dozen quickdraws.
We have designed our range of quickdraws with several points in mind. The safety of the climber, which is always our top priority. Weight so that you feel (almost) as light as you would in the gym. Ease of placement with a top carabiner smaller than the bottom one. And finally, the protecting the rope thanks to a larger contact surface in the bottom carabiner.
Last but not least, to avoid being hit on the top of your head by a rock, we can never emphasize strongly enough: a helmet is essential for outdoor climbing.
Light, airy, customizable, washable and with a handy magnetic chinstrap, our helmets have been designed to meet the needs of climbers of all levels. Good news, we have also thought of groups and children!
