Yes! Asside from a 35mm film camera with a good split prism focusing aid, mirrorless cameras are the best tool for shooting climbing! They're much smaller and lighter than DSLRs, so you'll hardly notice the extra bulk when climbing. You can even get them with 35mm sensors! The new Sony A7rII, for example, retains the full frame aethetic you'd find in a big, heavy DSLR such as the Cannon 5d, and has superior performance in important areas such as dynamic range and noise! Mirrorless (along with all digital cameras) fall just short of the golden mark of photography: film. If you're man enough to shoot film you'll be blessed with superior noise performance, enhanced grain, infinite resolution, better performance in the bedroom, and unlimited dynamic range. Not everyone can shoot film, but those who can master it will have their greatness laid out for all to see. Hope that helps, Tim.

Depending on how serious are you about the photography. Mirrorless DSLR's with full sensor (e.g. Sony A7S) are great, if you are in the first place concentrating photography. But if you are more interested in climbing and secondly taking cool photos, you might find Sony RX-100 a perfect compromise between the advanced features, Zeiss Vario-Sonnar lens and compact size.

Any mirrorless camera(https://store.yitechnology.com) comes handy. I suggest you look at which performs well.
