*NEW* BEASTMAKER MICRO RUNGS IN THE EDEN ROCK SHOP

Micros Tube LargeIf you haven’t yet seen them in the training room, go have a peak and/or play (over 18's only of course!). The Beastmaker ‘Micro Rungs’ come in 6mm, 8mm and 10mm and are sold together in one very pleasing package. On one side, they are a flat edge and the other is a 45degree sloper. They are perfect for improving finger strength and are much more discreet than a BeastmakerMicros Isometric Large.

Review: Logo Charko High TRousers

Women's Taglia Leggings

Full Size RenderIt’s becoming chillier outside and as the ¾ legging were such a big hit in summer, we thought we would review our more autumn appropriate full-length leggings for you. Charko designed them with climbing, yoga and other sports in mind. The stretchiness of the cotton-elastane blend means you are in no way restricted when bridging and making high rockovers. The are super soft and comfortable to wear and look elegant. The adjustable waist feels pretty secure and to boot!

Men's Navajo Trousers

Alex’s thoughts: The Charko Navajo trousers are a back to basic classic climbing Altrouser that does it all with out breaking the bank. The elastic waistband is simple, comfortable and practical so whether you're bouldering, getting on the ropes or off to your nan's house for dinner the Navajo has you covered. And as always with Charko these trousers are made with minimal environmental impact.

Charko clothing is manufactured in Barcelona, Spain, and the materials are sourced locally and nationally. They strive to be socially and environmentally sustainable in all areas of their company. An all round, pretty great organisation. We stock both the Taglia leggings and Navajo Trousers in our shop along with various other Charko styles. Feel free to come and try them on and see what you think.

Goodbye Nicole

For those of you who hadn’t heard, Nicole has set her sails west to the Nicolelands of maple syrup and brown bears. Our youth team were sorry to see her go (as were we) and we wish her all the best for her new Canadian adventures. Thank you Nicole for all you have contributed to Eden Rock over the years. You will be missed.
