ALPINE BIKE RIDE SUMMER Chamonix - Emma Crome

Cambridge to India - Christian Koch e-commerce cycle mechanic, guildford The story starts 10 years ago when I cycled round SE Asia, and decided that I had to go back there... by bike!!

Well over that length of time dreams change and I had to settle for a ride to India, a country so diverse and inspiring I could’ve spent years exploring it. Starting from Cambridge, Christmas 09, I crossed Eastern Europe in a particularly cold winter, tenting as much as possible, and in the blink of an eye was getting sunburnt through Turkey and Iran, followed by the mystical ‘Stans’ and the incredible Pamir highway. Sadly, the KKH (Karakorum Highway) eluded me, as I was denied a Pakistan Visa, so one flight to Delhi later and I was riding the magnificent Himalaya with my brother (who had flown out to meet me) before the snows fell. An amazing trip! Here are my top pieces of kit:

assistant manager, kensington high street

After a busy start to my new life in London with Snow+Rock last June, I decided it was time to escape to the mountains and visit my friend who lives in Chamonix. I managed to pack a lot in to a week, getting some classic easy alpine routes done such as Le Chere Couloir, traversing Le Pointe Lachenal and the Cosmiques Arete. Bivvying below the Cosmiques Refuge was a highlight, waking up to a fantastic red sky above the Grand Jorasses at dawn. Of course that did not bode well for the weather, and sure enough conditions on Le Chere Couloir turned a little nasty towards the afternoon, and our hasty retreat back up the midi arête in high winds is one I won’t forget. On a slightly balmier day I enjoyed some dry tooling at Les Houches, and rock climbing on the Aiguilles Rouge. It was an escape to the Alps that showed me just how varied and exciting the mountains can be, and how important quality kit is. I recommend the following pieces of kit for a similar summer trip to the Alps:

Mountain Hardwear Lightpath 2 £200

MSR Base 2 Pot Set £34.99

Rab Infinity 500 £400

La Sportiva Nepal Evo Boots £325

GENERAL EQUIPMENT TRIP GUIDES

MERA PEAK TRIP TREKKING Sweden - David Fisher Himalayas - Nathanael Boyson monument store

exeter store

Sarek National Park is a 2000 sq km wilderness in the Swedish Arctic. Often referred to as the last wilderness in Europe, the edge of the park itself is one day’s walk away from the nearest road in any direction, and contains no marked paths or trails. There is no chance to re-supply so you must be completely self-sufficient once you’ve left the road. Lightweight but dependable equipment is an absolute must as well as a good understanding of moving through a landscape with seemingly endless undulations, rivers and mosquitoes!

In 2008 I was part of an 8-person team trying to summit Mera Peak, in the Himalayas, in aid of the Royal Marines Benevolent fund.

Recommended Gear:

Osprey Argon 85 £240

At 6476M Mera Peak is well into the “high altitude” category and represents a significant undertaking. Of the 8 people on the trip only 3 summited and unfortunately I was not one of them! I did make it as far as high camp at 5800m but had to come down again due to altitude sickness. Getting stuck in a whiteout in a crevasse field for 8hrs the day before took its toll and I got dehydrated. Top tip, go slow and drink plenty of water! My favourite gear:

La Sportiva Spantik £490

Hilleberg Akto £400

Black Diamond Raven Ultra Axe 50cm £84.99

®

Lifesystems 100% DEET £7.99

Powermonkey Explorer £64.99

PACKS GUIDE 2012

day packs hydration & sports packs bladders alpine packs trekking packs technical travel packs duffle bags & wheeled luggage child packs & travel accessories

08-12 13-14 15 16-17 18-19 20 21 22-23

introduction If, like Nat from our Exeter store, you’re planning an ascent of Mera Peak, or you just need to haul your laptop across town, a decent rucksack will make light work of your load. The packs featured in our 2012 range come in all different styles, sizes, and colours so we really can cater for everybody’s needs and tastes. To help you choose the pack that’s best for you, we have split all our rucksacks, bags and child carriers into suitable categories, each with their own particular feature set and styling.

day packs As the name suggests these are ideal for a day trip and usually have an internal capacity between 10 and 35/40 litres. What may not be so obvious are the host of hidden features to be found on products like the The North Face Big Shot, which has divided compartments, a laptop sleeve, hydration port, and external mesh pockets that will help you organise your everyday items.

hydration packs When undertaking any outdoor activity, either on 2 wheels or 2 feet, staying properly hydrated is vitally important to your performance. Our range of hydration packs are designed for active use and will effortlessly deliver as much of your chosen drink as and when you need it by using internal bladders with a tube, and bite valve delivery.

alpine packs Rucksacks suitable for Alpine climbing and mountaineering need to carry ice axes, crampons, climbing hardware and ropes, as well as personal kit, and have always been, durable, versatile and totally dependable. This of course is still essential and Mountain Hardwear for example, along with Alpinist Ueli Steck, have combined these features with

lightweight materials to produce the new award winning Summit Rocket 40, in which all non-integral parts are removable.

trekking packs Backpacking can mean anything from a single overnight camping trip in North Wales to solo trekking across Sweden. Rucksacks suitable for this are usually between 65 and 85 litres and require the highest levels of fit, quality and comfort for carrying heavier loads. Products such as Osprey’s Argon 85 combine ergonomic shoulder straps, a custom fitted waistbelt and suspension technology to ensure the pack remains stable and comfortable during extended use.

travel packs, duffle bags & wheeled luggage Whether you choose the world famous and massively durable The North Face Base Camp duffle, or a Macpac Gemini with removable daypack, our 2012 range incorporates a host of wheeled and carry travel bags that have features such as zip-away carry harnesses, compression straps, and lockable zip pulls, which keep your gear safe no matter where you go.

child carriers As any parent would tell you, having kids needn’t mean the end of your outdoor adventures, and with a quality child carrier your little bundle of joy can truly follow in your footsteps. After 3 years in the making Osprey have produced the Poco range of innovative and fully adjustable child carriers, while Littlelife continue to refine their range to bring you exceptional comfort and keep your child cosy and snug.

SLEEPING BAG introduction

Whether you are camping in Cornwall, trekking in Thailand, or climbing in the Himalaya, most people’s thoughts turn to sleep at night. A quality sleep system is an essential investment if you want to enjoy a good nights rest. Our sleeping bag range features the very latest technologies from the best brands in the world. All of them are made to the highest standards in terms of quality and design, with meticulous attention to detail and materials. The following guide provides information on different types of sleeping bags and technologies available, so you can make sure you are getting the ideal sleeping bag for your venture.

temperature ratings

When choosing your bag there are a number of factors that should be taken into consideration, such as gender, age and weight. These can affect the way people sleep and how susceptible they are to the cold. Down bags generally offer a larger temperature guide range because they tend to be less clammy than synthetic equivalents, and often more comfortable in warmer temperatures. Other ways to stay warm include making sure you’re warm before getting into your bag by exercising, eating and staying well hydrated. Our temperature ratings use 3 figures to show you the comfort range for each sleeping bag. The upper figure we refer to as ‘Comfort’, the middle figure ‘Limit’ and the lower ‘Extreme’. These ratings are based on recommendations by the European Outdoor Group and are described as follows: ‘Comfort’ - The temp at which an adult female can have a comfortable nights sleep. ‘Limit’ - The lowest temp at which an adult male can have a comfortable nights sleep. ‘Extreme’ - A survival rating for an adult female, after 8hrs hypothermia may set in.

sleeping system

Down-filled sleeping bags provide insulation by trapping air, and are extremely light with a high warmth-to-weight ratio. However, they can struggle to provide insulation when wet. Synthetic bags utilise layers of microfibres to trap air and provide insulation even when wet. They are often a less expensive option than a down bag, but can be bulkier and not as light.

Species: Down plume from waterfowl gives the best performance and goose down lofts better than duck down (excluding Eider ducks). It is widely accepted that Eastern European countries such as Poland provide the best quality down, as their plumage is superior to Chinese birds because of the age of the bird at harvest.

which fill (down vs synthetic)

How a sleeping bag is made is just as important as what goes into it. Where down bags are concerned, they need internal chambers made up of walls or “baffles� to contain the down yet still allow natural loft. These chambers differ considerably depending on the end use (and price) of the bag. Varying shapes such as trapezoidal chambers and offset baffles help to ensure the down is evenly distributed. Synthetic bags tend to use single or multiple layers of overlapping insulation fill. As technology improves these bags are continually getting warmer, lighter and more effective.

Insulation is provided by a lofted filling trapping air to provide warmth – think of loft insulation in your home. The first question most people face is whether to buy a down or synthetic filled sleeping bag. Down from geese or ducks has an unbeatable warmth to weight ratio and, if cared for properly, will provide great longevity making your considered purchase a real investment. It is true that if down gets wet it loses its insulating loft, but with advancements in modern fabric coating technologies, moisture is less likely to penetrate the outer shell of a bag. Synthetic filling utilises layered hollow microfibres to provide insulation and still provides loft even if damp. These sleeping bags are often less expensive, but are usually bulkier and heavier than a down filled sleeping bag. As a general rule if you are planning on extended use, going somewhere pretty cold or if weight and pack size is of importance then a down bag should be a priority.

down quality

The quality of down used is a major element in providing superior performance, this is defined according to the Fill Power, Cluster ratio and species. Fill Power: Refers to the loft gained in test conditions represented by numbers such as 600, 800 or 850. The higher the number the greater the loft. Cluster ratio: Refers to the content of the down plume. 100% down cannot exist as there is always a small portion of feather content. 95/5 ratios can be achieved but are inconsistent, so a 90/10 ratio is regarded as the highest achievable reliable source.

baffled by construction?

care

When not in use it is important to store your sleeping bag as loosely as possible, as excessive compression damages the fibres of both down and synthetic bags. Many sleeping bags, usually down bags, come with a breathable cotton storage sack, but you can always store them in a pillow case or leave them loose in the airing cupboard. Synthetic bags are easier to wash in a large washing machine than down, we recommend tumble-drying all sleeping bags to ensure that the bag dries evenly throughout. Whilst down bags can be washed at home with Grangers products (see website), they may benefit from professional cleaning whenever possible - we recommend WH Franklin in Sheffield.

SYNTHETIC SLEEPING BAGS

Perfect for family trips or festivals, synthetic bags are the less expensive option for camping comfort. Synthetic bags function better in damp conditions and are easier to maintain than down, but they are heavier, bulkier and not as warm.

ESSENTIALS introduction In 1908 a certain Lieutenant General Baden-Powell published a book that taught all boys the importance of “being prepared�. These days with advances in technology and manufacturing processes this motto still remains true, but the items featured in this section have certainly moved on somewhat since then. Over the next 22 pages you will find all the very latest gadgets and equipment necessary to help keep you safe and to maximise your enjoyment of the great Outdoors.

mosquito protection

These modern wrist top “computers” are a must for anyone wanting to navigate by compass, view their altitude, monitor their heart rate, record their speed and distance, see what the weather is doing or just simply tell the time. Sleek, modern and stylish there is something here to suit everyone’s needs, tastes and budgets.

If you are travelling to an area where biting insects are a nuisance then you will definitely be in need of some of our repellents and mosquito nets. Repellents from Lifesystems provide the best possible protection over the longest period of time, and cater for different environments. Our range includes many different strengths and applications.

navigation

first aid

With our excellent range of maps, compasses, GPS units and accessories we can help you find your way no matter where in the world you are. We always recommend that you don’t rely solely upon a GPS, but also have a map and compass handy in case the batteries die or you lose signal. Our essential range of portable power products should help alleviate one of these issues however.

lighting

A reliable and lightweight light source, whether it’s a hands free LED head torch or a tent illuminating lantern, should always be high on anyone’s priority list. Continual improvements in power output, battery life and weight reduction see brands such as Petzl, Black Diamond and Silva literally lighting the way. For example, the new Silva Sprint+, with over 1000 lumens output, illuminates every bump and divot when running trails at night.

multi-tools & knives

Should you need to cut rope, open wine or beer bottles, use pliers or screwdrivers, or actually have to use “that thing for getting stones out of horse’s hooves”; you will find it all and more here. We have also put together a handy data table so you can see exactly what each tool has.

If injuries are sustained off the beaten track, it is important to have a well-equipped First Aid kit to hand. Our range has everything from an everyday Lifesystems Pocket First Aid kit to the comprehensive Solo Traveller. When travelling in developing countries it is important to carry your own sterile medical kit as well as the standard bandages, dressings and medications. That way, if emergency medical treatment is required from a local doctor or dentist, then surgically sterile equipment is immediately available.

stoves

We aim to help you make cooking as convenient and enjoyable as possible. With innovative and reliable products that are both lightweight and functional, we can cater for all trips both big and small all over the world. We have products such as the brutish MSR XGK, one of the world’s best ever expedition stoves, while Primus equipment has been part of people’s adventures since 1892.

water purification

One of the most important factors of any sport be it hill walking, mountaineering, mountain biking or trail running is the ability to hydrate before, during and after your chosen activity. With plenty of water bottles and bladders always in stock you can carry enough water for your needs without the need for filling up land fill sites with disposable water bottles. If the water quality is in question then our comprehensive range of water purifiers and filters will keep you safely hydrated.

CLIMBING GUIDE 2012

rock shoes harnesses protection carabiners & screwgates quickdraws rope control helmets ropes & software axes crampons ice screws & accessories boulder mats & chalk bags introduction

Last but certainly not least is our prestigious climbing section. We continue to bring you the world’s best gear from the brands we all know and love, coupled with an insight into what some of our staff get up to and the gear they use. We hope you enjoy this section as much as we enjoyed trialling and testing these products. On the following pages you will find 27 pairs of Rock Shoes, the very latest hardware and harnesses, cutting edge ice tools and essential training aids. Whilst in-depth buying guides for bouldering, trad and alpine climbing can be found on our website, we’d like to take this opportunity to point you in the right direction and mention some new products and innovations which have really excited us for 2012.

rock shoes

Over the next few pages we have grouped shoes by brand and where possible have suggested an end use on each page. We see a welcome return back to our range for the Italian brand La Sportiva with the Solution and the Muira, which along with shoes like the 5-10 Arrowhead and the new Boreal Kintaros form part of our steep or “technical” range of shoes. These are ideally suited for overhanging rock and are found to be radically shaped to provide sensitivity and support when looking for the smallest edge to stand on. They generally use Velcro closures for ease of getting on and off repeatedly, while those with the lace-up option provide precision support to the foot. For us mere mortals, who would want to wear a slightly more forgiving shoe for longer routes that still retains plenty of support and “performance”, shoes such as the Red Chili Spirit Velcro or 5-10 Anasazi are the ideal choice. This just leaves “comfort” shoes, such as the Boreal Jokers and the new Scarpa Reflex, which are ideal for beginners, all day climbing and classic mountain routes.

harnesses

Black Diamond has developed an innovative “trak fit” fitting system for leg loops, which does away with the traditional buckle for adjustment. Arc’teryx continue making truly breathtaking harnesses and carry on astounding us with their Warp Strength Technology. Finally, the new Mammut Ophir double-buckled waist belt harness comes as part of a package containing a carabiner, belay device, chalk and chalk bag.

hardware

With technology continually developing and designers making products lighter, stronger and easier to use, modern climbing hardware has never been so exciting. Petzl have brought out the new 25% lighter Reverso 4, as well as the ultralight Ange carabiner with its MonoFil Keylock technology, which combines the fluidity of a spring gate with the lightness of a wire gate system. Black Diamond have a new locking carabiner called the Magnetron that uses magnets to lock the gate in position, while the Hoodwire gets a makeover with the new revision available in July. DMM’s new Alpha range is ergonomically designed to sit perfectly in your hand and with a massive gate opening makes troublesome rope clipping a thing of the past. Our crampon and axe range is not just for winter and we ensure our full technical range is available for our summer alpine climbers and expedition customers. For those of you who still want to train but can’t get to a wall as often as you’d like, our Metolius range of finger boards and training aids continues to grow. And if you wanted to make your own wall we can help you with that too! In order to learn the skills or knowledge required to remain safe, or if you are unsure at all about the use of any of the equipment in this section, we would advise that you seek qualified professional instruction. For your personal safety and assurance, climbing equipment is non-returnable unless found to be faulty.

TRIP GUIDES CLIMBING

CLIMBING CLIMBING ROCKHong Kong - Jack Kopland

Railay Beach, Thailand - Phoenix Chow The North Face supervisor, chill factore

I went travelling last summer and ensured that Railay, with its bright white sandy beaches and clear turquoise waters surrounded by towering limestone cliffs, was penned in my itinerary. Renowned as a climber’s haven with more than 600 routes to explore, we set out on a 3-day challenge to truly immerse ourselves into our surroundings. On the third day as the sun was beginning to dip, the 5c ‘Groove Tube’ route was especially memorable. Not only was the view beyond spectacular, the climb involved me literally having to slip myself through a hole and then up the tube, whilst my guide Sim shouted “You have such strong legs”.

sales assistant, port solent store

I recently had the opportunity to spend 3 months working as an outdoor instructor in Hong Kong. Having climbed in most of the classic British climbing locations, but never abroad, I was very excited to be able to explore some new routes in a completely different environment. I found that many of the climbing locations in Hong Kong had rarely been climbed resulting in a lot of loose rock, and they often involved a long and adventurous walk-in. Climbing on such unpredictable rock meant that you had to have complete confidence in your gear to really push yourself. My favourite bits of climbing kit were:

My top tip would be to never fear. Climbing is addictive. It can be dangerous but with the right gear and spirit it can be truly rewarding. Items I’d highly recommend:

ROPES CLIMBING

Ropes are the dynamic part of a climbing safety system and dissipate the energy of a fall through the protection system. The information below outlines the differences between the types of rope that we have and the styles of climbing to which they are best suited.

single ropes (8.9-11mm diameter)

Pros: • Cheaper than a double rope system • Thick single ropes are durable and inspire confidence • Great for setting up top ropes. Cons: • Can’t be split so heavier to carry than a double rope system • Meandering pitches can prove difficult to protect without generating rope drag • Skinny single ropes are not designed for intensive use due to their thinner diameter.

half ropes (7.5-9mm diameter)

Pros: • Can be split, making carrying easier on long approaches • Gear can be clipped to either rope, reducing drag and making long meandering pitches easier and safer to lead • Best choice for trad climbing in summer and winter as they have more stretch, reducing impact forces • Better when climbing on loose or sharp rock. Cons: • Slightly more expensive than single ropes • Belaying can be awkward for beginners.

dry or non-dry?

Dry coating reduces the chances of the rope freezing, helps keep dirt out of the fibres and increases abrasion resistance. It does make the rope slightly dearer, but most climbers feel it’s worth it.

what length?

Most multi-pitch climbers use 60m rope, which allows them to string pitches together and reduce abseils when retreating. The drawbacks are increased weight and price. Outcrop climbers and those tackling classic routes use 50m ropes as they are lighter and cheaper.

SLINGS, CORDS & ACCESSORIES CLIMBING

slings

A sling consists of a tied or sewn loop of webbing that can be wrapped around sections of rock, hitched to other pieces of equipment or tied directly to a tensioned line for anchor extension, equalisation, or climbing the rope.

slings are made using either Dyneema or Nylon Dyneema is a mixture of nylon and polyethylene yarn. It has a high strength-to-weight ratio and can be used to make 10mm slings that are perfect for threading narrow gaps on belays and are more secure on small spikes than wider slings. However Dyneema slings are more expensive and prone to wear. Nylon slings are heavier but cheaper and harder wearing, and are also available in a wide variety of constructions, widths and thicknesses.

cord

Static or non-dynamic cord is designed for threading hexes and nuts, using as prusik loops, abseil tat and a host of other mountain related uses. While not designed for leading, thicker diameters can make quite good light scrambling and hillwalking safety ropes. Slings and Cords lose a lot of their strength as they wear, and should be replaced every few years. Replace them sooner if frequently used in high mountain areas where UV degradation is accelerated.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE No Hassles Promise For your extra peace of mind all store purchases are covered by our 21 day exchange or refund promise. If you change your mind, for whatever reason, bring back the items to one of our stores with the original receipt and packaging and we will be pleased to offer you an exchange or immediate refund - no hassles, no questions. Shop, Mail Order and Web purchases can be exchanged in-store, but items requiring refunds will be returned to Mail Order for processing (In some cases other guarantees may take precedence. This does not affect your statutory rights). Please note all warranty returns must be clean and free from dirt and mud to comply with the current Health and Safety Regulations. Special orders placed for items outside the Snow+Rock range cannot be returned under the no-hassles promise unless faulty.

UK Price Pledge We strive to make our prices in the UK the most competitive prices across Europe, so if you find the same product for a lower price (in the same size, colour and specification) we will be happy to refund the difference. The product must be in stock with our competitor when the Price Pledge is registered. Our Price Pledge is offered to you on the following basis. We will match from Shop to Shop, Mail Order to Mail Order, and Internet to Internet. We will not match from Internet or Mail Order to Shop sales. Our Price Pledge is for the period of 21 days from purchase. Our Price Pledge will not cover items available from private individuals or Sole Traders on auction sites. Items available through Authorised Retailers on the auction sites can be processed using the same conditions as above. For Price Matches outside of UK territorial waters the following criteria will be used: • The Thomas Cook tourist rate is used as a basis for currency exchange. • The delivery charge applied will be based on charges we would make for foreign delivery. • Plus local Duty and Taxes applicable at the time of the contract. We will adopt a fair strategy within the bounds of law as it directly relates to the importation of goods in to the country. A document outlining current law is viewable within our Terms and Conditions on our website. We regret that due to currency variations we are not able to offer a UK/European pledge in our Dublin store (see in-store for details of our Irish price pledge).

Walking Boot Comfort Guarantee When you buy boots from us we will do our best to ensure that they fit. If after purchase you discover any fit problems, we will continue to offer a free refitting service. Finally if, despite our refitting efforts, your boots prove unsuitable we will issue you with a credit note for 50% of the purchase price. To achieve the highest quality of fit a custom footbed is essential. Conditions: • Cash refunds are not given. • You must retain your original purchase receipt. • The comfort guarantee is valid for 6 weeks from date of purchase. • Wear and tear will be taken into consideration. • This guarantee is in addition to your statutory rights.

98

VAT Refunds & b.f.p.o. The minimum purchase value for VAT refunding is £50 excluding delivery, per order. To ensure receiving VAT refund under B.F.P.O. status, please enclose your ‘certificate of entitlement’ with each order. VAT Free shopping is available through our UK shops and mail order department for non EEC residents. B.F.P.O. orders take from 5 working days to process. All VAT orders are processed at full UK rate, with the VAT refunded by the same payment method used to order, in a minimum of 30 days after posting. Amex cards excluded.

Delivery of Telephone, Post & Internet Orders:

(subject to availability of stock) We use insured, traceable delivery services. 48 hour standard delivery is from the date of despatch not the date of ordering, and is subject to stock availability from our warehouse. Express delivery is available to the UK mainland at an extra cost. Where stock has to be picked from one of our stores, the delivery time may be extended. For goods out of stock, we will update you with our anticipated delivery date within 2 working days of receiving the order. Scottish Highlands and Islands may take up to 2 working days. Payment for goods will be taken up to 24 hours prior to despatching the goods. Deliveries are made between 8am and 6pm, Monday to Friday, with parcels requiring a signature. If there is normally no one at home, a card will be left to re-arrange delivery. Alternatively, please supply an address that can receive the parcel on your behalf. Snow+Rock’s acceptance of your order commences when your order is despatched. At this point the purchase contract starts and you will be charged for the goods. for full details on delivery charges please go online:

www.snowandrock.com

Clothing & Glove Care Crampons, axes and other sharp equipment will damage clothing and gloves if they come into direct contact with them. Damage can occur during normal use and whilst carrying your equipment and is not covered by warranty. Damage can be limited by keeping your equipment regularly serviced and carrying crampons, axes, etc. so that any sharp points or edges do not come into contact with your clothing. With gloves, especially leather, dry away from direct heat and use a leather protection cream to prolong useful life. When washing clothing we recommend the use of a mild soap, a cool wash and extra rinsing for technical fabrics; however, always follow manufacturers recommendations and never use strong detergents or fabric conditioner as these can cause damage.

Colours Whilst every effort has been made to present the true likeness of the product colours, variations may occur in catalogue print and on different screen resolutions. We therefore cannot guarantee colours will be as seen in the catalogue or on your screen.

Gift Vouchers Don’t forget Snow+Rock gift vouchers are available in-store and are redeemable on products and services in any one of our stores nationwide and also through our call centre (excl. Harrods).

Refunds

(internet & mail order purchases) Goods can be returned for a prompt refund or exchange if they are received back at our Mail Order Shopping Department within 21 days in new condition, with the original packaging, labelling and Snow+Rock receipt. The 21 days start from the day of despatch, but as a minimum includes a period of 7 working days from the day after delivery to you as the permitted cancellation period. This would not apply for special orders taken on behalf of the customer. We recommend that items being returned be sent via insured, traceable delivery for your protection. Please note: all return postage charges to be met by customer, unless returning due to a fault. We will be unable to refund or exchange any lady’s swimwear where the hygiene strip has been removed. Please note all warranty returns must be clean and free from dirt and mud to comply with the current Health and Safety Regulations. Note: DVD’s, CD-Roms, videos, books, safety equipment and ropes are non-exchangeable and non-returnable, unless faulty. All of the above does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer. If you have any queries please contact Snow+Rock: enquiries@snowandrock.com or phone 01483 445355.

Statutory Rights These terms and conditions do not affect your statutory rights as a consumer.

Prices The prices in this catalogue include VAT at the prevailing rate and are accurate at the time of going to print. However, situations may occur where prices are incorrectly quoted or changed after the catalogue has been published as a result of circumstances beyond our control. In those situations, you will be informed of the correct or revised prices once your order is received by us, and if you should not wish to purchase the product concerned at that price we will cancel that part of the order. Our website will reflect the latest prices or enquire in-store. When calling Snow+Rock your call may be recorded for training purposes.

Safety Statement All outdoor sport activities are potentially hazardous, and we recommend that training on how to use the safety & hardware products we sell is carried out by a qualified trainer before venturing into your chosen activity.

Errors & Omissions Excepted Not all stores stock our full ranges. Please visit our website for store telephone numbers to confirm availability.

Powerhinge: A technology used in climbing shoes where

the bottom of the outsole has a hole cut in it. The slingshot rand is then engineered to connect to the sole of the shoe in this area. When the toe of the shoe is weighted on an edge the weight of the climber stretches from the heel forward. The hole cut in the sole causes the shoe to only stretch in the back half of the shoe effectively leaving the toes in place on the surface of the rock.

Primaloft One: The ultimate microfibre insulation, it has one of the highest warmth-to-weight ratios of any synthetic insulation. Ultra fine fibres are specially treated and then combined into an insulating core that is incredibly soft, lightweight and water resistant.

which the upper is sewn into a sock and then slipped onto the last. Slip lasted shoes normally do not have an insole and get their “stiffness” from the midsole which is located just above the outsole. Slip lasted rock climbing shoes tend to be sensitive and less stiff than board lasted shoes.

Thermic Micro: Insulation made from a combination

of hollow and solid staple fibres that provides excellent loft, durability, softness and compression.

Training Effect: An accurate measurement of how

hard you have trained. To calculate your personal Training Effect, Suunto heart rate monitors use data from your personal profile and combine it with a real-time analysis of your physiological progress. Your heart rate monitor then formulates your Training Effect, presented on a scale from 1-5.
