Derek donated some of his Climbing Gear

Over this last year we have been working on a book celebrating the legacy of the passionate climbers behind our shop. We wanted to retrace the journeys and routes first taken by the Abraham brothers and to tell new stories that recapture the essence of adventure that inspired them. The walk up to the crag, the time it takes to climb a route, the experience you have with the people along the way adds up to so much more than an hour on an indoor wall. Climbing is about the excitement of exploration that the Abraham brothers pioneered. So we followed in their footsteps to rediscover adventure for ourselves.

As part of the book and to help us tell these stories, we need you. We would love to see your old climbing photos and hear the stories behind them. If this is something you would like to be a part of head to: http://bit.ly/George-Fisher-Climbing-Photos to get involved.
