Topic - OUTDOOR INDUSTRY NEWS: Crampons, Crampons......and Axes

Michael Ryan - on 09 Feb 2009
Crampon and axe sales are understandably booming, despite the economic downturn, as walkers and climbers flock to the snow shrouded hills and mountains of the UK.

Climbing shops are doing well, and manufacturers and suppliers are doing their best to keep up with demand.

At the same time Mountain Rescue Teams in the UK are under a great deal of pressure. If you don't have the skills and the equipment, best to stay at home.


Please bear with us whilst we are going through a redesign. Product News has widened its scope and is now called Outdoor Industry News. This is featured on the new News page - - but has yet to be updated on the Gear Page. Nick Smith will be busy with this update when he returns from an ice climbing trip to Scotland. More news on this later.
