Christmas-PromoOur Christmas promotion this year is going to be a little bit different. We're offering a load of bargains and gift ideas, as we always do at this time of year, but this time there'll a fresh batch of festive deals coming round every 2 days (excluding weekends). As the days tick down towards Christmas, each offer day will be marked by a classic stage on the iconic Eiger North Face (a sort of mountaineers advent calendar if you like!).

They'll be something for everyone among this year's offerings, with deals on everything from hats to handwarmers, climbing kit to crampons; all of which would make ideal gifts for the outdoor nut in your family! And the is best thing is that once the deal products for each day are revealed, they'll stay at the promotion price right through until Christmas! Remember its free postage on all UK orders too!!

This Christmas Eiger promotion is our homage to one of the greatest climbing achievements of the past 100 years. It follows the classic Heckmair Route taken on the first ascent of the Eiger in 1938, and made famous by Heindrich Harrer's Classic mountaineering book 'The White Spider'.

Our Christmas promo is starting on Monday the 5th December and new products will be revealed every other weekday. Sign up to our newsletter, or keep a close eye on the website, Facebook or Twitter, to see what's on offer for each stage.
