We have all the gear you need for your next adventure in the mountains.

We are home to all the big brand names in mountaineering equipment like La Sportiva, Grivel, Black Diamond, Petzl and DMM.

Make a wise choice of mountaineering boots

In our varied range of alpine boots, we offer styles suitable for 8000 m peaks and anything below. You will need the comfort, warmth and technical benefits of our light weight and durable mountaineering boots for any serious venture into the mountains. With alpine boots, a correct fitting is essential, especially for extended periods in extreme cold.

Our expert team can help you with fitting and selecting boots that are best for your needs. We are the only local stockist of La Sportiva mountaineering boots.

Ice Axes

At K2, we also have a broad range of ice axes for all situations from walking in snow to highly technical mixed routes. We also have ice axes of different lengths and weights to suit your individual needs. Walking axes in particular should be fitted to match your height. Our top-end climbing axes are made from lightweight carbon. You can choose to buy your axes individually, or in hammer and adze sets.

Crampons

An essential part of any mountaineer’s kit is quality crampons from top brands like Grivel and Edelrid that are made using the latest technology, like anti-balling plates to stop unwanted buildup of snow on the crampon. We have crampons for every purpose, from winter walking to hard winter climbs

It is important to get your crampons fitted to your boots as they are adjustable and you may need extended bars if you have a longer foot. If you are unsure which crampon is most suitable for you, our team is here to assist you.

Ice Screws

We also offer a full range of ice screws from Grivel and Black Diamond for protection on ice climbs, and these are another essential part of any winter climber’s rack. You can find all of the accessories you need for your mountaineering gear right here at K2. Come in to see all the great gear we have in store, including alpine packs, crampon crowns and crampon bags for stowing your crampons, leashes and rubber tips to add to and protect your axes, probes, snow shovels and ice axe carriers, plus much more.
