    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!

    With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

    You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


    With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

    So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

  • Gloves & Mitts - Dachstein Mitts

    These are the classic heavy duty, pre shrunk wool mitts for serious mountain warmth. Made well oversized and then boiled to shrink to a thick feltlike mitt, they are a definite must for the tough Scottish winters. 

    Dachstein Mitts are not waterproof, however they do retain some of the natural oils from the wool and are naturally water resistant. Dachstiens have been popular with mountaineers for decades for their legendary ability to keep your hands warm whatever the weather. 
    When used in winter conditions, ice will form over the mitt which actually helps to keep the hands warm.

    As modelled by Clint Eastwood in the classic 1975 film, the Eiger Sanction.

    *Please note that the sizing of the Dachstein Mitts is very large, so you may need to order a size, or even two sizes down, from your regular glove size
