CityROCK is delighted to announce that we are now the official EDELRID importers and retailers in SA.
Many of the company’s products are now available at CityROCK Cape Town and CityROCK Johannesburg as well as online at www.mountainmailorder.co.za.
“We at CityROCK are proud of the fact that we are a truly world-class gear shop, owned and staffed by climbers. To do this we need to make sure we are working with all the world’s best climbing gear brands. In the past we’ve had regular requests for Edelrid ropes, or their innovative belay devices such as the Jul. We even bought some Ohms for our customers to use for safer lead climbing in the gym. So it made sense to include Edelrid in that lineup. ” – Robert Breyer
What happened to Vertigo and Bloc?
Tristan says: “We’ve had a decade long relationship with this great brand, but as our business shifted – partly with our close association with Bloc11 – Vertigo felt that we were not able to give the brand the attention and focus it deserved in the market place. As CityROCK already have a relationship with Vaude (Edelrid’s holding company), it made sense to pass it on and wish both all the success.” – Tristan Firman
