About Joe Brown Outdoor Shop

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.

Joe Brown's is also partnered with two leading mountain organisations; the British Mountain Guides Association and the International School of Mountaineering.

The two Joe Brown shops (Llanberis and Capel Curig) are part of Hooked on Granite Ltd, along with The Climbers' Shops in Ambleside and Milton Keynes. The Climbers Shop in Ambleside, in Cumbria, was one of the first mountaineering shops in the UK, opening its doors in 1959. Joe Brown actually worked as a consultant for the shop, before setting up his own business in Wales.

We are part of this family of four iconic shops; shops with an extraordinary heritage that pioneered the outdoor retail market and that still lead the way over 50 years on.
