Okay, okay, so I’m a little behind in the times reporting this since I saw the shop coming up some time back, but just in case you weren’t aware, Allsports is now in 1Utama. Located near the Bridge, the shop is on level one, just one floor below TGV Cinema.
While I was shopping with my SIL and her friend a couple of days ago, I took a quick squiz through the shop and was pleasantly surprised to find that the price of a decent pair of rock climbing shoes is still going around RM300+ and a Petzl harness can still be purchased also for around RM300+. Ropes, quickdraws and belay devices have gone up considerably, though – nearly double the price I purchased mine for. The 70m Beal ropes were going for around RM800 (I bought a 60m Beal rope for about RM400). I saw a simple quickdraw for about RM110+. Even a Reverso costs about RM100+.
I don’t know the going rate for climbing equipment at the other shops since it has been equally long since I last checked it out. I have yet to find a place that sells a child harness though – not that Gavin is ready to start climbing just yet.
