Choosing your first climbing sack or a replacement rucksack is a really important decision for anyone spending time in the outdoors whether you want a small backpack for your rock shoes and chalk bag when heading out bouldering or to the wall or you need a larger technical rucksack for that multi-day mountaineering adventure. Here at LD Mountain Centre climbing rucksacks are part of our heritage and early Berghaus rucksacks were manufactured on our premises in Newcastle back in the sixties and seventies. Of course today we still stock Berghaus climbing rucksacks like the Arete and Expedition Light 80 but in addition to this we have some great technical packs from Arcteryx, Deuter, Montane, Haglofs and Black Diamond packed with essential climbing features like axe holders, crampon pouches, haul loops, detachable lids, ski carry etc. you name it one of our climbing backpack will have some or all of these features. If you are unsure which rucksack is going to right for you why not give our experienced team a call.
