A colorful little pop-up selling vintage camping and hiking gear has opened inside the nine-month-old Steep Rock West Bouldering on Columbia's new Manhattanville campus.

Brooklyn-based Monroe Garden Vintage Outdoor Gear has taken over the bouldering spot's airy lobby and filled it with American and European outerwear brands from the '70 through the '90s, including Fjallraven, Patagonia, North Face and L.L. Bean.

The temporary shop features a curated selection of bright backpacks, fleece jackets, old boots, vintage copies of hiking magazines such as Summit, and what it calls "crumbling equipment." Items like an old backpacking stove and small antlers add a rustic vibe.

While you may not find the exact gear to help you climb the sheer walls of Steep Rock West, you'll discover plenty to help you look the part after you're done.
