I’ve only just recently biught climbing magazines, so I don’t have a good back reference, but I’m after prices for crash pads and can’t seem to find them on shop websites like MainPeak and Mountain Designs, would anyone be able to tell me where I can buy the things?
I’m assuming htat you don’t just cart a whopping great mattress everywhere and there are specialist things, right? 😉
Try the outdoor stores like Paddy Pallin, Mountain Designs, Mainpeak, Snowgum. Give them a phone call. I haven’t tried to buy a crash pad but I know you can get them locally and have seen one for sale at the Rockface climbing gym.
Glad you reminded me, old chap! We found a fantastic…. supplement! Doing any of you have a daggy old 70s caravan, or a friend, or relly perhaps?
They have matresses with a very dense foam and they’re lovely to fall on! They worked a charm at boulder rock a few weeks back (and hopefully tomorrow’s trip). Plus there’s usually about 4-6 a caravan, huzzah!
