Camping while Climbing on a 300€ Budget
Are you venturing out climbing and want to stay overnight right underneath your post - quarantine project? Car/crag camping is BACK and if you’re out camping for the first time you probably need to get a basic kit to keep you cozy and comfy. Here are a couple of suggestions!
Get a hammock!
If you experience sleep issues or a sore back or limbs post climbing, the answer could be to recline, relax, and hang out in a hammock. A hammock will naturally move you into the ideal sleeping position—and keep you there. In this way, it can function a lot like a memory foam bed. A hammock isn't going to let you roll to your side or your stomach, which could hurt your back. Additionally, your head will be slightly elevated above your body, which is ideal for restful sleep.
The Sea to Summit Pro Single Hammock is a single-person hammock which, it has been designed to excel all other hammocks in the market in terms of 'materials, construction, weight, bulk, and ease of use'. The Pro Single Hammock is made from a soft ripstop nylon material that prevents rips and tears whilst still maintaining next-to-skin comfort for a better night's rest. It's highly durable Cordura Nylon compression bag ensures the hammock is fully protected when stuffed into backpacks. It also features high strength steel-plated buckles.

"The clear weather provides for an incredible sight where too many stars to count shine brightly. The Milky Way spans the entire sky. Both kids and parents stare in wonder, soaking up the nighttime beauty in complete silence. With a twinkle in their eyes, the twins head to their tent, sleepy after a long day. Tomorrow, the family will continue their hike before returning home." #petzlnightlife Discover the full text in our story Photo: @arnaudchilderic_kalicestudio
