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.

Although our roots are in the Lake District we have the stock and the expertise to equip you for any type of adventure in any type of wild environment around the world. If you don’t find the advice or the item you need on this website, please don’t hesitate to call us up for a chat.

MSR Base 2 Pot

 MSR (Mountain Safety Research) have revamped their cookwear range for 2009 with lighter, harder wearing, more user friendly pots, pans, cups and plates.  The new range is designed to be as modular as possible and be compatible with other MSR products.  This means that personalised cooking systems can easily be built by combining stoves, pots, pans, cups and plates and they will fit together in a neater package.

We now have stock of some of the best items from the new MSR cookwear ranges.  These include the 'Base 2 Pot Set' which is an excellent non-stick 2 person set, ideal for backpacking and base camping.

 For lightweight fanatic's and solo backpackers we have the MSR Quick 1 Pot, which made of Titanium, is far lighter than any steel or aluminium alternative.MSR Quick 1 pot

MSR's popular and excellent Titan range of titanium pans and kettles will remain in the range, but unfortunately their popular Blacklite and Alpine steel cooksets will be being phased out.  If you are a die hard fan of these 'old school' cooksets get them while stocks are available.
