Wild Country came about as the brainchild of a UK based climber Mark Vallance and was set up to manufacture what was to become the most famous piece of rock climbing gear of all time, the Friend. Friends were the brainchild of US climber Ray Jardine who Mark had met in the USA a few years earlier. Then when Ray couldn’t find a partner in the US to develop and produce his revolutionary new unit Mark and he joined forces and Wild Country was born.
They now make a huge selection of kit, including, cams, harnesses, Nuts, karbiners, quickdraws, helmets, clothing and much much more. As always they make everything to an extremely high standard and are one of the bed rocks of climbing across the globe.
