We love rock climbing in every form: trad climbing where you are placing your own protection such as nuts, slings and camming devices (the superior form of rock climbing according to Chris), sport climbing where you are clipping bolts and only require quickdraws and a rope (the superior form of rock climbing according to Ben), bouldering where you just need a bouldering mat, some chalk and massive guns (the superior form of rock climbing according to Beth) and solo climbing the purest of them all where all you need are your rock shoes and a perfect state of mind. No matter how little or how much climbing gear you need we will have it here.
In the last few years we have had a resurgance of winter climbing activity in the south of the UK. Low cost flights to the Alps and increased knowledge about places like Rjukan in Norway have helped, but so too have the harsh winters of 2009 and 2010 where there were queues for ice climbs in the South Wales Valleys and on the mixed routes of the Brecon Beacons for the first time for years. This has helped us ramp up our range and stock of ice tools, ice screws and crampons and has meant that Andy, Dave and Chris have been getting plenty of ice routes and mixed routes done as well.
Climbing in the Alps and Greater Ranges is close to our hearts at Up and Under. Chris, Andy and Dave have all done a number of summer seasons in the European Alps, whilst Dave has also spent a deal of time climbing and trekking in the Himalaya in Nepal, Tibet and India, the Karakorum in Pakistan and the Peruvian Andes. With this level of experience instore we need to keep the equipment in stock for everyone else to do the same, so you'll find all the climbing equipment that you'll need to tackle your chosen peak alongside items such as high altitude boots and down clothing.
We specialize in equipment for climbing Big Walls and are one of very few U.K. climbing shops that hold this product in stock and give live stock availability on their website. So for those extra special bigwall climbing requirements, i.e. copperheads, haul bags, pitons, porta-ledges and daisies, dive into our Pegs and Aid section or contact Andy for advice.
Most of the climbing kit in this our climbing section is where you would expect it to be under subheadings like rockshoes, harnesses and ice tools, available from the dropdown menu at the top of the page or from the side headings at the upper right hand side of the page. Here, however, are some quick links to less obvious gear:
Beta Sticks - clip sticks
to get the first one or two quickdraws in a sport route safely in for you. Not for the faint of heart, for those who want to push their limits!
from various brands, to keep your rope clean and tidy.
Screamers - shock absorbers
for protecting extremely marginal gear placements and ice pro.
- every climber should have a sturdy rackable knife, and a lot of guides won't leave flat ground without one. You can find more in the Tools and Knives sections of www.upandunder.co.uk.
Other things of relevance to climbers can be found elsewhere in the catalogue, for instance climbing rucksacks can be found under the Climbing Daysacks heading in the Sacks and Bags section, Approach Shoes are under Footwear as are Fell and Trail Running Shoes which are ideal for crag approach and then clipping to your harness during your route. Boots for scrambling, via ferrata, light alpinism, winter mountaineering and ice climbing are on the mountain boots page. High altitude boots and other expedition gear such as down clothing are also dotted around the site so keep your eyes peeled.
For movement upon ropes (fixed ropes and self-rescue equipment for example) check out ascenders from Black Diamond, Petzl and Wild Country. For hoisting and rescue check out our climbing pulleys.

Please note: that items of PPE cannot be returned (PPE stands for Personal Protection Equipment and the definition applies to caving, climbing and industrial equipment including helmets, harnesses, ropes, and accessories intended to link a person to a structure/face such as camming devices, karabiners, slings, ascenders, etc).
