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.

Hooked on Granite Ltd Delivery Details


UK Mainland Shipping

Free UK shipping is available on all orders over £25

Priority and Premium services available for fast delivery

Royal Mail parcel post typically takes 3 working days (90%), as does second class letter post (98%). Over 90% of first class letters are delivered the next working day. For more information see www.postwatch.co.uk

All items are advertised subject to availability.

We are a small retailer, and while we do have a modern EPOS system mistakes can still happen. Inevitably we may therefore occasionally sell out of an item that is still on the website as in stock.

If we have sold out of an item we cannot always repeat, or supply future stock at the same price.

If it ever happens we will inform you by e-mail or phone of the availability and price before dispatching the goods, and give you the option of canceling your order or considering an alternative. Even though your card has to go through an authorisation for payment when you place your order, your account is not actually charged until the goods are dispatched.

Please note that for deliveries to the Highlands & Islands, while we will endevour to ship next day orders by the fastest service possible, we have been unable to get a guarantee from our carriers that it will actually be a next day delivery. We will always do our best.
