    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!

    Petzl Quark Pair Deal

    The Petzl Quarks are fantastic ice climbing tools; with ample clearance, aggressive teeth and a lovely swing balance.

    Designed primarily for technical mountaineering and for ice climbing and because of the Quark's modular head construction, it adapts to any situation, making the quark one of the most  versatile ice tools available.

    The Quark is smooth and balanced; the interchangeable ICE T pick is tapered to 3mm for excellent penetration in all ice types, and is shaped for stable hooking on both rock and ice. For leashless climbing the Griprest and the Trigrest combine to ensure a comfortable, powerful grip. Flick the bottom of the Trigrest up, and you can adjust the position with ease.
