The answer to the question; When and where did Joe Brown open his first climbing shop? Is 1966 in Llanberis, North Wales.

From the Joe Brown website:

'1966 was also a year of change at home. Val had never been entirely happy living at White Hall, and they had considered opening a climbing shop for some time. Joe had already started making fibreglass climbing helmets, which he thought he could expand into more of a full time business. A suitable property was found in Llanberis High Street (the some one as is the shop today), and helped with a loan from Chris Briggs of the Pen-y-Gwryd Hotel, they moved in to a building in need of major repair and complete refurbishment, done by Joe and climbing acquaintances. They opened for business at Easter while Joe was climbing on South Stack for the BBC live outside broadcast. '

First prize goes to:

Matthew Ivory of Somerset who wins a Mountain Equipment Firefox Jacket (srp £200) made from GORE Active Shell

The three runners up each win a a Long Hope and The Pinnacle DVD's.

They are:

Tom Castle of London
Dan Habershon-Butcher of Bristol
Einar Hilding
