Climb On History

Climb On Equipment was originally founded in 1992 by George and Berget Hanzel. At that time, Squamish was a much smaller, and much rougher place, but George and Berget had the dream, and knew that one day rock climbing would take off in Squamish.

The early years were challenging with a small community and long wet winters. Over time, George and Berget passed the business on to Dan Butler, and eventually to Ashley Green in 2013. Ashley was able to combine Climb On, with her existing Outdoor Gear Consignment business to make a winning combination of outdoor rock climbing specialty equipment and top quality outdoor adventure gear on consignment.

These days, Climb On is known to have the best selection of top climbing brand equipment, shoes and apparel, and the most eclectic collection of climbing specialty items that are hard to find elsewhere. A visit to the shop also gives you the opportunity to browse second-hand outdoor goods on consignment from local athletes, sales reps, and the public, plus browse a great deal of samples and close-out products.
