Trad is rad!  Adventurous climbing delivering unrivalled freedom on a rock journey from bottom to the top.  It’s physical and mental challenges, once overcome will grant you access to some incredible places, views and an enduring sense of accomplishment.

From single pitch roadside cragging to remote mountain multi-pitch climbs, we have all the equipment you need to get out on the rock.  stock complete size ranges of active and passive protection including nuts, cams, hexes and slings, a varied collection of carabiners and quickdraws suitable for all climbing disciplines.  Rope, helmets and harnesses for trad climbing are all also curated here for you.
