We have an absolute passion for climbing gear, which is why you’ll find the world’s best rock climbing equipment at Ellis Brigham shops. At the forefront of the UK climbing scene for more than 75 years, we’ve seen technology race along.

Harnesses are a good example; the Whillans harness and MOACS of yesteryear have (thankfully) given way to the likes of the Arc’teryx R-320A and Dragon Cams of today.

Climbing ropes are another, and our selection covers all bases with single and double ropes, and lengths from 30-70 metres. Our comprehensive range of climbing shoes and boots has been chosen from the best brands on the market, including Five Ten, Sportiva and Scarpa. Whether you’re climbing gritstone cracks, limestone overhangs or man-made walls, you’ll find a rock shoe that suits your climbing style. As always, our experienced buyers have insisted on quality, performance and value for money.

If ice climbing is your thing, then look no further. We’ve got the UK’s most comprehensive range of ice axes, crampons and accessories. From technical tools that will perform on the most extreme testpieces, to sturdy walking axes for snowy fell walks, we will equip you to enjoy the hills in safety. If you want to test out your climbing gear before heading to the mountains, then why not visit our indoor ice climbing centres?
