FAQ:

Q: What equipment do you need to go trekking?

A: In the unsteadiness of the ground beneath you? If so, you need a trekking pole, or a walking stick, or a hiking staff, or a cane (mechanically, what they do is basically all the same).

Q: What tools do you need to hike the Appalachian Trail?

A: If so, you need a trekking pole, or a walking stick, or a hiking staff, or a cane (mechanically, what they do is basically all the same). Any tool long enough to reach the ground and arrest your fall and aid your balance is a good tool to have around—a broom handle or a tree branch could work in a pinch.

Q: What are the best hiking boots?

A: After trekking over 1,200 miles and taking more than 2 million steps across all types of terrain in more than 41 pairs of hiking boots over the course of three years, we’ve chosen the La Sportiva Saber GTX ( men’s and women’s) as the best hiking boots. These waterproof boots are as lightweight and grippy as trail runners.

Q: What is the best grip material for climbing?

A: Cork is generally a favorite grip material because it breaks down over time and slowly shapes to your hand. Cork stays cooler than rubber but is heavier and sweatier than foam. Rubber doesn’t absorb any water, so it’s probably better for hardcore mountaineering and winter treks, but rubber in hot climes or in sweaty hands might chafe after a while.
