The only way you’ll really know if the gear is right for you is to try it on. We will help you try on harnesses, shoes, and helmets and check their fit and suitability. Our staff are always on hand to offer helpful advice or personal recommendations. Between them, our team knows pretty much everything there is to know about climbing gear, so come down to get all your questions answered.
Online shopping for climbing gear is common but it’s not how we do things here. Climbing gear typically comes in a range of sizes that are different from what you may be used to and therefore can be tricky to get right. For new climbers especially, we recommend that you buy climbing equipment under the advice of experienced staff who are there to help you get it right the first time.
Buying gear in a professional shop rather than online is also the best way to guarantee that you are buying equipment that has been tested to conform to the highest safety standards.
