About Us

Welcome to Rock Hardware

I'm Steve Morris, founder of Rock Hardware, and I'm here to help with all your climbing gear needs. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to call 0427 418 886 during office hours, or email me at steve@rockhardware.com.au

I have extensive industry knowledge. I am an active rock climber, climbing guide and height and safety instructor. I'm here to help you with any advice that I can pass on. Almost all items listed here on our website are in stock and can be shipped immediately.

Please at least give me the opportunity to match or better a competitor's price before committing to a sale. Simply navigate through the home page to check out our wide range of climbing gear.

Why buy from Rock Hardware?

 

You're buying more than just a product

I can give you sound advice about the best equipment for you and what you need, based on decades of experience. I am a multi-pitch guide with the Australian Climbing Instructors Association (ACIA), have been an active Height Safety and Rescue Trainer in wind farms for the past 12 years and I regularly give talks about climbing to climbing clubs and social groups. I am also the co-author, with my son John Morris, of 17 Down Under: A celebration of moderate grade rock climbing in Victoria.

We use what we sell

All retail decisions are based on first-hand experience in the field and feedback from reliable sources in the industry. We only sell products we would happily use ourselves.

We stand by our reputation

Rock Hardware is a family-run business, established in 1995. We have forged a solid reputation amongst our peers for more than 23 years, welcoming everyone like a friend. We stand by the products we sell and are committed to the strength and sustainability of the rock climbing community.

In 2016, my son John and I were the subjects of the Sydney Morning Herald/The Age "The Two of Us" section. You can read our story here.
