We love climbing. We establish new climbs and support those rebolting our cliffs.
Climbing Anchors originally started its life in a couple of sheds in Newcastle and Sydney. Steve Hawkshaw and Trent Lee made bolts and sold glue, hence the name 'Climbing Anchors'. Since those small beginnings as a hobby, the business moved to Coffs Harbour, NSW, Australia where it started life as a full time store. We pride ourselves supplying climbers all over Australia with exceptional customer service and have, in recent years, added our retail stores in Alexandria and Collingwood to help our customers access the huge range of climbing gear we now supply.
Since then, we have continued to expand the wide range of climbing gear we provide to climbers at great prices. It is our aim to provide a service to climbers and not just sell gear. We are available for you to seek advice on any products or climbing information you may require.
We have a strong belief in the need to maintain the fixed climbing protection found in crags throughout Australia. In this regard, we put aside money each year towards anchor renewal initiatives. We also facilitate rebolting donations and pass on the donations by way of specific equipment such as bolts, shackles, adhesives, drill bits etc.
