Beta – About

Makers of the BetaStick remote clipping device for sport climbing and industrial access/rescue.
UK importer and distributor of quality products for the ClimbingOutdoor and Ultra-running retail trades.


Beta Climbing Designs was set up by Si Berry and Ian Barnes at the turn of the milenium to get their new remote clipping device “The Betastick” into the market place. The Betasick went global and more products were bought in to turn Beta Climbing Designs into a distribution service for other climbing equipment.

Tony Whitehouse joined the team as more brands were taken on board and now there is a team of people helping to promote, distribute and send out climbing equipment, outdoor brands and ultra-running kit to the UK retail trade.
