Welcome to our world, where the love for climbing transcends the mere act and becomes a lifestyle. As the first dedicated shop in Australia’s climbing community, we've embarked on a journey fueled by passion and the commitment to equip adventurers like you with the finest gear. Whether you're taking your first steps on an indoor wall or preparing to conquer the rugged cliffs outdoors, our mission remains the same: to guide, support, and inspire every climb.

Understanding Climbing Equipment

Climbing isn't just a sport; it's an adventure that requires trust - in yourself and your gear. With a wide range of climbing styles, including bouldering, sport climbing, and traditional climbing, the gear you choose becomes your partner in every ascent.

  • Shoes: Your foundation, offering the grip and precision needed for your climb
  • Harnesses: Your safety net, designed for comfort and reliability.
  • Ropes: Your lifeline, dynamic or static, each tailored to the climbing's nature.
  • Carabiners and Belay Devices: Your tools for protection and control.
  • Helmets and Crash Pads: Your armor against the unforeseen, essential for outdoor ventures.

Gear Up for Indoor Climbing

Indoor climbing is the playground where beginners and seasoned climbers alike hone their skills. Here, the emphasis is on gear that blends comfort with functionality.

  • Approach Shoes: Opt for a snug fit that offers both comfort for long sessions and sensitivity for feeling the holds.
  • E9 Clothing: Lightweight and streamlined, ideal for gym climbs.
  • Ocun Clothing: From lightweight and stretchy allowing for unrestricted movement and comfort for even the longest sessions. To more durable fabrics for cooler climates and more abrasive rock types.
  • Selecting Gear for Outdoor Climbing
  • Shoes: The terrain dictates your choice. From aggressive downturns for overhangs to flater soles for slab climbing, every style has its shoe.
  • Harnesses: Features like adjustable leg loops and ample gear loops come into play outdoors.
  • Ropes: The length and diameter depend on your climb, but durability and handling is crucial
  • Protection Gear: The unsung heroes of traditional climbing, cams, and nuts, secure your path as you climb
  • Helmets: Never an option, always a necessity. The outdoors is unforgiving, and a helmet is your best defense.
