A New Climbing Shop in Leeds – Mountain Intelligence

by UKC Gear Opening Saturday October 11th, Mountain Intelligence is a new climbing and mountaineering shop situated at 70 North Street in the centre of Leeds. Mountain Intelligence is the brainchild of 36 year old Chris Hague. Many of the outdoor chains concentrate on a few key pieces from the major outdoor companies and cater for the masses. However, Chris plans to focus on the leading brands such as Arcteryx, Black Diamond, DMM, Evolv, Five Ten, Grivel, La Sportiva, Scarpa, Metolius, Patagonia and Prana – offering a greater range of products for the more discerning boulderer, climber and mountaineer. And not just for shopping! The Mountain Intelligence Winter ´08 Lecture Series will commence with James Pearson on Wednesday 22nd October, followed by Steph Davis November 19th and Ian Parnell on December 10th. Tickets are available by contacting the store direct on 0113 246 9843
