Hooked on Granite Ltd & ISM Retail Partnership

The Climbers Shop are very proud to be associated with the International School of Mountaineering (ISM) based in Leysin, Switzerland, and to be their official retail partner.

ISM is widely recognised as the foremost organisation of its kind. Since 1965 the school has been running the most extensive programme of alpine mountaineering courses available to English-speakers internationally. This is coupled with a range of 'Haute Route' treks across the Alps in summer, Ski Tours and Off-piste skiing courses throughout the spring, and ice climbing courses in the winter months. Countless people have discovered the mountains through ISM; experienced climbers return time after time to enjoy and progress through a wide-ranging alpine programme and perhaps share the great adventure of an ISM expedition. The Climbers Shop has an equally long history; first opening in 1959 in Ambleside, Cumbria, as one of the UK's first specialist climbing stores, by Frank Davies. The Climbers Shop's heritage of supplying the very best in mountaineering and climbing gear compliments ISM's tradition of offering the very best training in mountaineering and Alpinism, so in many ways our partnership was an obvious choice.

If you have booked on an ISM course, you can benefit from preferential ISM client prices on all of our gear and clothing, whether its new ice tools, replacement mountain boots or technical alpine clothing that you need.
