Explaining in words why climbing matters is almost impossible. We all know we can’t expect everyone to understand the satisfaction of a good hold at the end of a crux sequence, the relief of a perfect cam sinking into a crack after a long run-out or for them to be impressed with a dog-eared guide book with years of hard-earned ticks. But the fact remains that getting out climbing, whether at the local wall or a long planned trip to the mountains, is an essential ingredient in our lives.
Here at Mountain Equipment seeing our gear playing its part in the daily lives of climbers, being put to the test in some of the most inspiring places on earth, gives us the drive to keep making our gear the best it can be.
