Big day today! Stage 5: Death Bivouac to Traverse of the Gods via the Ramp (check out the map on the website ( ) to see where we’re at on the face)

After a bitterly cold and sleep deprived overnight stay at Death Bivouac we progress upwards at first light.

Today’s new tranche of offers includes one of our most popular jackets, the Rab Vapour Rise trail Jacket. At only £92 (Normal RRP £115) what is not to like about this offer? The Rab Vapour Rise Trail Jacket is versatile all rounder , being windproof, warm and highly water resistant; it’s a jacket made for the mountains. ...and from now until Christmas it an absolute steal!

We’ve also got a great deal on the superb Edelrid Boa Climbing rope. This is an awesome all rounder, ideal for the beginner and experienced climber alike. This single rope is 9.8mm making it perfect for climbing walls, sports climbing and cragging. It is also light and super strong. The Edelrid Boa is now fantastic value for money and is available at the Christmas promo Price of just £79.00 (50 metre).

The Leatherman Style gift pack completes today’s trio of goodies, and is the sort of thing any ‘boy scout’ (young or old) would love in their stocking on Christmas morning.

Our Christmas Eiger promo sees new products revealed every other weekday until the 19th December (leaving plenty of time for delivery for Christmas). Keep a close eye on the website ( to see what great offers we have at each stage.

Don’t forget, we have free UK postage on everything too!!
