Climb the routes, then wear your tick list with pride. We’ve launched a brand-new range of men’s hoodies and tees – all featuring a unique tick design made up from the names of 61 classic climbs.

New men's Hard Rock hoodies and tees

Once more, we’ve teamed up with acclaimed illustrator Liam Dangerfield, who created our legendary trad sun design. To pay tribute to Hard Rock, the ultimate tick list, he’s designed this unique tick which is made up from the names of all the climbs in Hard Rock.

There are two super-warm organic hoodies in cloud grey or Navy. Alternatively, choose from one of the three tee colours: slate heather, sandstone or stone.

Buy for yourself to inspire your climbing in 2017, or these are the ideal present for the climber in your life.

Buy them in the BMC Shop.

Organic Hoodies

Look at that tick. You won't be getting cold at the crag either, with one our new super heavyweight hoodies, made with organic combed cotton, a heavy 2x2 rib and a soft hand-feel.

Organic Tees

These 100% organic cotton tees are perfect for layering or wearing by themselves, available in three colours: stone, slate, or sandstone.

What is the Hard Rock book?

It’s the ultimate climbing ticklist. Many books have been written about British climbing, but one stands head-and-shoulders above the rest: the iconic Hard Rock, compiled by the late Ken Wilson. It might have first hit the shelves in 1974, but this feast of climbing literature has weathered the following years as easily as a granite crag.

Many of the routes listed continue to be at the top of any trad climber's ticklist. These 61 routes share 173 gleaming stars and all perfectly capture that unique feeling of British climbing adventure.

Wear the clothing - and be one of the first to watch the film

To celebrate the life of Ken Wilson (1941 – 2016), BMC TV teamed up with Hot Aches Productions to release this new film. Featuring never-seen-before interview footage with Ken describing just why he was so passionate about British trad climbing, reconstructions of his early climbing adventures and Steve McClure, Calum Muskett and Michaela Tracey climbing three iconic routes, this film is a 20-minute trad treat.

READ: Ken Wilson, Mountain Man

Hard Rock premiered at Kendal Mountain Festival 2016 to a welcoming audience. We showed the film twice in the Basecamp and once during BMC TV’s excitingly off-the-wall event Breakfast Club. The crowds laughed and gasped in all the right places and cheered and clapped when the credits rolled; we count that as winning. 

If you missed it at Kendal, don't worry, we've got a special Xmas pressie for you. It’s not available on BMC TV yet, but every person who buys a Hard Rock hoody or tee will be emailed an exclusive access code to be one of the first to watch the film. 


We've got Christmas wrapped up

We know the stress of trying to find the perfect Christmas present, especially when you're like us and have left all your shopping to the last minute! That's why we've packed the BMC Shop with great gift-bundles that cater to everybody.

Make your climbing partner look super cool with the Classic Climbing Essentials Bundle, which includes a pair of belay glasses and DMM chalk bag, amongst others. Or if that's not your bag, grab the Walking Essentials Bundle which saves you more than £22!

So check out the rest of the range of offers available to you from the BMC Shop and save yourself from unnecessarily gaining any extra grey hairs this December. 

Designer gear: the new BMC clothing range

Inspired by our new BMC TV films, we’ve created a brand new range of designs for our organic tees, hoodies, vests and jumpers. 

There's a funky new women's clothing range, with unique designs from the incredibly talented Tessa Lyons, and a men's clothing range celebrating Ken Wilson's tome of classic climbs: Hard Rock

Be the first to wear them!
