    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!

  • Joe Brown's delivery & shipping information

    UK standard deliveries are post free for orders over £30.00.

    A postage and packaging fee of £3.50 is charged for any UK orders under £30.00

    Next (Working) Day Delivery

    If you wish to receive your order on the next working day (Monday - Friday only. Weekends are not classed as working days with any of our carriers), then we will charge an extra £5.00. This option is available at the Shipping options section of the check out. All orders must be placed before 10.30am to be eligible for the Next Working Day delivery option, although we will do our best to include any orders placed after the cut off time. The couriers will deliver to home, or work addresses, but do add a disclaimer, suggesting that while unlikely, delivery could occur at any time of the day, until 9pm.

    We aim to dispatch "in stock" orders within 24 hours.

    If we are ever out of stock of an item and cannot supply within a few days we will e-mail or phone you giving the option to cancel your order, wait, or accept an alternative.

    We cannot guarantee delivery by a set time unless we use one of the Post Office or Carriers Special Delivery services, for which we will charge. These services are normally very expensive.

    Royal Mail parcel post typically takes 3 working days (90%), as does second class letter post (98%). Over 90% of first class letters are delivered the next working day. For more information see www.postwatch.co.uk

    All items are advertised subject to availability.

    We are a small retailer, and while we do have a modern EPOS system mistakes can still happen. Inevitably we may therefore occasionally sell out of an item that is still on the website as in stock.

    If we have sold out of an item we cannot always repeat, or supply future stock at the same price.

    If it ever happens we will inform you by e-mail or phone of the availability and price before dispatching the goods, and give you the option of canceling your order or considering an alternative. Even though your card has to go through an authorisation for payment when you place your order, your account is not actually charged until the goods are dispatched.

    Please note that for deliveries to the Highlands & Islands, while we will endevour to ship next day orders by the fastest service possible, we have been unable to get a guarantee from our carriers that it will actually be a next day delivery. We will always do our best.
