High Mountain Guides / Useful Information / Equipment Hire

Equipment Hire

We have a great range of modern technical mountaineering equipment right across the leading brands of manufactures such as Petzl, Grivel & Black Diamond for hardware and Scarpa, La Sportiva and Millet for boots.

  • These items can all be arranged in advance and booked for your course. Our equipment rental prices are much cheaper than you would pay in a high street shop.
  • Hiring from us is a good way of testing different equipment and getting advice on the right selection prior to purchasing your own gear. We have some exciting new kit items, recently released from the manufactures, for you to try, like the super light Petzl Sirocco Helmet or Scarpa's latest alpine boots - the Rebel Lite, designed with help from the 'Swiss Machine' Ueli Steck!
  • Please get in touch in advance with your shoe size for arranging rental of Mountain Boots / Rock Boots / Crampons.
  • As well as the items listed below, we can also hire gaiters, mountaineering jackets, goggles and some items of mountain clothing such as waterproof & warm jackets.
