    A bit about us

    Purveyors of the very finest climbing equipment for almost 50 years.

    Joe Brown is considered the foremost rock climber and mountaineer of his generation, and perhaps the greatest all round mountaineer ever. You can read a biography of his climbing career if you click here.

    In 1966 Joe opened the Llanberis climbing shop with his wife Val. The Capel Curig shop opened a couple of years later and over the years the shops have earned the reputation of being among the best specialist climbing equipment and outdoor gear shops in the UK. In April 2010 we opened "The Corner Shop" in Llanberis, it specialises in footwear with a professional boot fitting service, trail & fell running, camping equipment, family outdoor & gear for kids.

    As an independent mountaineering, climbing equipment and outdoor business we focus on providing honest and personal advice, as well as great ranges of mountaineering, rock climbing, ice climbing, walking, hiking, expedition and alpine climbing equipment.

    So if you find yourselves visiting Snowdonia, which we hope you will, please pop in and see us at one of our locations in Llanberis or Capel Curig. You will be sure to find an Aladin's cave of technical gear and equipment from all the major quality specialist outdoor brands. Or if at home or work then enjoy browsing or shopping on our web site.

    Most of all though enjoy your time outdoors whatever your pastime, have fun and be safe!

  • Wild Country Astro 10cm Quickdraw

    Wild Country's lightest karabiner, the Astro Techwire is teamed up with their lightest 10mm Dyneema sling you have a quickdraw that weighs less than most screwgates. The Astro is a little smaller than many karabiners, thus reducing its weight,  but it is still a very usable size, with good internal volume and gate opening. The Astro is a great choice for your trad mountaineering rack, as being so light you can carry more for those awkward pitches. 

    The two karabiners are anodised different colours to ensure that your rope never runs over any nicks or burrs caused by bolts or wires.
