Sponsor Post – Maxim Ropes


It’s light enough for redpointing, but still has the legendary durability for which New England Ropes is known. Pinnacle is also an option for the trad climber who wants to climb longer pitches without adding weight or sacrificing durability and abrasion resistance. All Pinnacle ropes have an Endura Dry-treated core and 3 versions feature a 2X Dry cover, making Pinnacle a good choice for a lightweight single ice rope as well.


Manufacturing costs are minimized by incorporating more white yarns in the sheath construction, which reduces the expensive yarn dying processes. The durable Equinox features an Endura Dry treated core and is made to the same high standards as our Apex series. With its excellent knotability, ease of clipping, and its slim 9.9mm and 10.2mm diameters, the versatile Equinox is ideal for sport climbing or multi-pitch routes. EN 1892

Paddy Pallin – Sponsor Post

Some 85 years ago, a young bushwalker’s dissatisfaction with the limited and heavy bushwalking equipment available prompted him to design and make his own. Before long, word spread, and Paddy Pallin’s lightweight and functional designs were soon in demand among fellow bushwalkers. Such was the demand for his specialist equipment (mainly rucksacks, tents and sleeping bags) he opened his first store in Sydney in the early 1930’s.

From its early days Paddy Pallin has concentrated on supplying adventure enthusiast and travellers with the highest quality and most advanced products, not only from the past Paddy Pallin equipment and clothing labels, but also by sourcing a broad range of equipment, footwear and clothing from some of the world’s leading manufacturers.

Still owned by the Pallin family, the company has grown to 12 stores throughout Australia and continues its tradition of suppling quality technical adventure gear to bushwalkers, adventure travellers and climbers.
