    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!

    DMM Chimera Quickdraw x 5 Bundle Deal

    The Chimera Quickdraw from DMM is the ultimate lightweight quickdraw. Taking design features from the super popular Phantom. With the same high performance and similar weight to that of the Phantom, the Chimera features a snag-free clean nose design, for even faster clipping and un-clipping and slightly smaller overall carabiner size. With the hot forged, I beam construction, this allows for maximum strength but with minimal weight.

    Supplied on 8mm Dynatec, this further adds to keeping weight down and strength for strength, still remains stronger than nylon. This thinner and more flexible tape is ideally suited to trad climbers and also absorbs less water than nylon, so is a better choice for winter use. Opposing coloured carabiners ensure you clip the correct end and make for even quicker clipping. With a deep rope basket, the rope sits comfortably when run through the carabiner.

    Once handled, we're pretty sure you'll be wanting a full range of lengths for your rack!
