In 1959 Frank Davies opened The Climber's Shop - the first outdoor shop in Ambleside! For over half a century The Climbers Shop remains in the centre of Ambleside and is a focal point for many climbers, walkers and holiday makers wanting to kit themselves out for the outdoor lifestyle.

Our ranges are constantly changing to meet the needs of the modern outdoor enthusiast and include clothing from Rab, Salomon, Patagonia and Mountain Equipment and Mammut and equipment from the likes of Black Diamond, Petzl, Osprey, Edelrid, and Wild Country. Our footwear comes from companies such as Salomon, Scarpa, Meindl and Zamberlan, while our tent range is possibly the largest range of Hilleberg tents in the country.
If we don't stock what you want, we can also order it in, normally in just a few days.

Our highly experienced staff have the in depth knowledge to help you with any enquiry. We have experts in every type of mountain activity and for all seasons on our staff, from mountaineering to rock climbing, fell running to backpacking and every variant in between. Our team are on hand to provide you with the right advice and the right gear to suit your individual needs and circumstances.

As an independent store we are able to offer a far wider range of clothing, equipment and accessories than you will find in any of the bigger chain stores.

Klymit-Inertia-X-Frame The ultimate in lightweight, minimalist camping gear has been released, and is now available from The Climbers Shop. The Klymit Inertia X-Frame is a lightweight sleeping mat that is aimed squarely at fast & light activists, adventure racers and mountain marathoners, and features a clever design of strategically placed air chambers that provide a comfortable nights sleep but at a tiny fraction of the weight of normal sleep mats.

The Inertia X Frame has won multiple industry and innovation awards as the world's lightest, most compact, and most advanced full length camping pad available, weighing in at an amazing 258g (9.1oz). Designed with body mapping research, it gives you support and comfort in all the key pressure zones, while eliminating unnecessary material to reduce weight and pack size.

Suitable for 3 season use, the Inertia X Frame rolls up to the size of a drinks can, and takes only a few breaths to inflate, making it not only light, but convenient and quick to use.

Not widely available in the UK, The Climbers Shop have included it in their range to compliment the growing volume of running and ‘fast & light’ products that we stock. Take a look at the new running category for a full listing.
