The Climbing Store in Big Bear!
Housed in the North Shore Trading Company, we’re a mix of locals with over 10 years of retail experience and helpful climbing beta (info) for Big Bear Valley.
Created by a climber for climbers, we’re committed to selling gear at the same price you’d find down the hill – no cruel price gouging here!
Five percent of our sales will benefit clean-ups of local crags and support the local climbing community.
Bear Climbing Co. is Big Bear’s only climbing store, specializing in the basics to keep you supplied in the mountains. Whether you’re up here for the weekend and need a bit more chalk or a local climber adding a few quick-draws to your rack, our prices are the same as you’ll find down the hill. Owned by a climber to serve other climbers, you can count on us to get your back. Additionally, proceeds contribute to clean-ups at all the community crags. Support your community – buy local!
