If you aren't flailing on 5.10's anymore, you're probably ready to start lead-climbing. It's time to invest in quickdraws (like Black Diamond FireWires, $17.50), a daisy chain, and a high-quality rope. BlueWater's 10.2-millimeter, 60-meter Eliminator is long enough for some multipitch climbs. Bonus: A percentage of the proceeds benefits HERA Women's Cancer Foundation. bluewaterropes.com
