The Joe Brown Shops (Est 1966) and The Climbers Shop (Est 1959)

With over 100 years of retail heritage our shops are incredibly proud to offer a huge choice of clothing and equipment for climbers, mountaineers, hillwalkers and trail runners. Our story was begun by pioneers back in the days when hemp ropes were all the rage. Today, our team are equally passionate about sharing their experience of the products we stock so you don’t have to experience the hard lessons they have already learned.

What does being a Pro Store mean?

All four of our stores hold an extensive range of Scarpa footwear. From rock climbing shoes, running and approach shoes right through to high-altitude boots, we have a huge variety. Not only do we have the choice, but we also have the availability to back this up. In a few key models in the range, we also stock an expanded size range from 36 right through to 50. Another key ingredient to being a designated Pro Store is the pride we have in the ability of our staff to help you select the most suitable footwear for your activity. With many years of experience between them all in running, climbing and walking, you could say that our staff know a thing or two. Each one of them is keen to pass on their knowledge and expertise in not only selecting the right product for you, but also in explaining the technical features and attributes of the product itself.

The Climbers Shop and Joe Brown Shops have ranged Scarpa since the very early days. We want to offer an amazing range of technical outdoor footwear that can be put through its paces. Our partnership with Scarpa allows both The Climbers Shop and Joe Brown Shops the ability to provide our customers with the very best outdoor footwear choice possible and with both such a unique and long-standing heritage, we feel this to be the perfect partnership.

We are very proud that Joe Brown Shops in Capel Curig and Llanberis and The Climbers Shop in Ambleside and Stony Stratford are the first shops in the UK to have the Scarpa Pro Store status.
