Kit

These Personal Kit Lists have been compiled to ensure your comfort and safety on Snowdonia Climbing courses and thus it is important that you attend with all the items as listed.

We will assume that you require Snowdonia Climbing to supply technical equipment such as helmet, harness and rack. If you do own your own technical equipment, it is recommended that you bring them along. Please indicate on the Booking Form tick boxes which equipment you wish Snowdonia Climbing to provide for you. Please note that climbing shoes, a very personal piece of equipment, are provided only for entry level rock climbing courses.

You will find a selection of equipment retailers on our links page. If you require advice or have any queries regarding the kit requirements, please do get in touch:
