Team Ram Mount​aineering

Since 1996 Ram Mountaineering has been importing some of the finest outdoor and industrial safety gear on the planet. We source the world’s best brands and deliver quality gear. Whether it’s alpinism, climbing, trekking, camping, rescues, or working at height – we’ve got it!

We are proud to bring such outstanding brands as Black Diamond Equipment, Beal Ropes, Vango packs & tents, Nikwax care products, and Singing Rock industrial & rescue equipment within easy reach of the South African mountaineering community.  Ram Mountaineering is run by a group of individuals who are passionate outdoor activists – folk with extensive experience in rock climbing, alpinism, ice climbing, adventure racing, mountain biking and international travel.  As a result, we are intimately involved in using the equipment that we distribute – we climb with it,  we fall on it, sit in storms in it … and more.   All this ensures that we are very well positioned to choose the best gear to fit the South African outdoor market. We want the kit that we distribute to be the very best option – so that you can be confident when you buy it. We are always able to give you first hand feedback on our products and offer practical advice on the best options to meet your equipment needs. Check out our gear advice pages here.
