We are a homegrown Australian gear store founded in 2004 which has been rapidly growing since 2010. What initially began as an online only operation has transformed and expanded over the years to now include four stores. The first flagship store was our Alexandria location in 2017, followed by Collingwood in 2018, and then our Mini Stores in 9 Degrees Lane Cove and Waterloo.
Our stores are more than just gear shops, our team is made up of enthusiastic climbers, canyoners and guides from all different walks of life.
