Plas y Brenin equipment Stores

Whilst you are on a course with us all your equipment hire is included in the cost of your course.

Winter Mountaineering Equipment

We hire out boots, crampons and ice axes to members of the public and our prices are given below. However we must make sure that our courses have been kitted out fully first. Therefore, we ask that, if you'd like to hire some kit, please come in at 10 am or after on Mondays and Saturdays. You can come in at 9am on any other day.

If you would like to collect the night before or need large numbers – give us a call on 01690 720214. and we will see what we can do. Any loans are subject to availability.

We also ask you to leave a security deposit, usually a drivers licence or a credit card. If you're returning after stores is closed at 5:30, we can arrange for this to be left at reception – you just need to let us know. Any security deposits are kept securely. Unfortunately, we cannot take bookings for public hire, though we often have plenty left.

Many thanks for your understanding, hopefully we'll see you in our equipment stores soon!
