Most climbers have a bit of a gear nerd streak – embarking on quests to find our holy grail of climbing shoes, chalk, rope, carabiners, clothes – basically, anything and everything we use when we climb. Our staff is no different; we might even have some of the largest gear lovers out there! We LOVE to share our knowledge, help out new climbers, and opine about what gear we think is best.

Gear is very personal and there are so many good brands and products on the market that choosing gear can be a long process. Our gym shops are stocked with brands and products that we have tested and that we believe in but even though we have a lot of brands, there is not a one size fits all solution. Test things out, talk to our staff about your needs, and check out our What’s In Your Bag videos where our staff shows you what they use when they climb.
