Climbing Pants (Layer 3) Soft-shell climbing pants offer a wide range of versatility. You can wear them in combination with the base layer on colder days, or alone on warmer days.

Why Soft Shell Pants? The soft shell material breathes well and allows the sweat and heat generated during the climb to dissipate, while still offering some resistance to light wind and precipitation. These climbing pants are our main workhorse layer, often worn alone on the approach, and with a baselayer on the upper mountain for added warmth. Depending on the model, soft shells come in varying thicknesses.

Hard Shell Pants (Layer 5) A waterproof pant with 3/4 side zippers (sometimes called 7/8 or full side zips) are required for facilitating quick clothing adjustments over boots.
