Renting winter climbing gear

by Isaac Rayner
(New Zealand)

Hi everyone. I am planning on climbing Mt. Fuji this year on the 23rd of April (or around abouts). I have done a significant amount of ice climbing here in NZ and am relatively experienced and so is my partner.

However, as I am travelling from NZ, it's hard to bring over all the gear (i.e. boots and ice axes, etc). For the life of me, I can't find a provider of rentable climbing gear in Japan. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks, Isaac

Here are a few ideas on renting winter cimbing gear

Isaac, some of the info on this page, regarding a similar question I answered last August, may help you: https://www.garyjwolff.com/can-i-rent-simple-bootsjacket-and-trousers-to-climb-mt-fuji.html

I'm not a winter climber, so I'm afraid that's all the leads I have for you at this time. :-)

Best wishes....

Gary
