    A bit about us

    Purveyors of the very finest climbing equipment for 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.

    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 Alladin'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!

    Walking Boots

    Leather or Fabric? Whatever your preference we have a great range of walking and hiking boots in stock so you can be sure to find one that will fit your foot perfectly. Comfy feet mean a happy walk and we like nothing better than to have our customers pop in and tell us about the adventures they've been having in their comfy boots.

    If you have had trouble finding the right boot for you why don't you come and book a personal fitting in our Llanberis Walking and Running shop where you can recline on a leather couch, take your time and test your boots out on our "mini rocky terrain". We'll even provide a loaded pack for your back because every one of these factors has an effect on the shape of your foot in the boot. When it comes to buying boots from Joe Browns - you know your feet are in safe hands. Choose from Meindl, Salomon, Scarpa and Zamberlan.
