Activewear Outfits for Rock Climbing

Sure, we love yoga, running, biking, and swimming in the summer, but it’s time to add something else to the mix when it comes to our outside activities, and we’ve found just the one: rock climbing. Whether we’re heading to the indoor rock wall at our local gym or we’re venturing into the great outdoors for some light bouldering or more extensive hikes and roped climbing routes, rock climbing is the name of the game this summer, and we can’t get enough.

Unlike other activities, however, rock-climbing outfits require a little more focus than some others. We want a look with much less fuss than we might opt for on our jogs or at our morning yoga classes, one that features a little more layering for when the sun goes down in the afternoon, and pieces that won’t bunch or tuck when we slip into that harness. We’re opting for sleek black sets and head-to-toe colored ones, we’re layering up with windbreakers and bombers, and we’re seeking lightweight sneakers.

We’ve rounded up a little rock-climbing outfit inspiration below. And even if you’ve never tried the sport, these chic looks might just change your mind.

Rock climbing has never looked so good.
