Labor Day is one of the best sale periods of the year for climbing gear. It’s often better than July 4th sales because the season is coming to a close and retailers want to reduce their stock. This year, perhaps because of COVID the sales are similar to last years November sales.

Below you’ll find links to the climbing sale pages of major websites that are having killer sales and deals — though most end of Sept 7th.

Also, if you want to see the gear we’ve curated as the best climbing on sale gear, check out our curated deals page to see the prices upfont (best = most wanted and most owned according to WeighMyRack).
