Final sale

All discounted products are final sale.

Due to the inherently dangerous nature of climbing, NO RETURNS will be accepted on climbing and safety equipment. Climbing and safety equipment includes, but is not limited to, any piece of equipment that has a certification, rating or load limit (kN). Example: carabiner, quickdraw, rope, harness, helmet, ice axe, cam, nuts, belay device, lanyards and slings, etc.


To reduce our ecological footprint:

Please note that because we try to reduce the amount of waste we produce, you may receive your order in a different product box than what you ordered (e.g. a pair of climbing pants in a box of climbing shoes) or in a reused padded envelope.



All items purchased at regular price may be returned within ten (10) business days of receipt, for any reason, for a product refund.

Shipping charges are non-refundable and you are responsible for the return shipping charges. Please note that it may take 5-10 days for the refund to appear on your credit card statement.

All items must be in new condition, labeled, unmarked and in their original, undamaged packaging. All returns must have a Return Authorization Number (RA#) clearly marked on the outside of the package.

Any merchandise indicated as being on clearance or sale is considered a final sale and cannot be returned or exchanged.

* The customer is responsible for all costs related to the return of an item.



EXCEPTION: We do not accept returns or exchanges on climbing safety equipment.



After the 30-day period, only the manufacturer's warranty will apply. If your equipment breaks due to a manufacturing defect, we invite you to contact us for more information on the manufacturer's warranty. This warranty does not cover abuse, accidental damage or normal wear and tear.


Before returning any item, you must contact us either by email: [email protected] or by phone at 1-403-609-8226 and we will provide you with a Return Authorization Number (RA #) that you must write on the outside of your package.

Once you have your RA number, you can mail the package, at your own expense, to the following address:

Vertical Addiction
Returns Department
1300 Railway Avenue
Canmore, Alberta
T1W 1P6


Note: We strongly recommend that you insure your package and request a tracking number, as we cannot be held responsible for the loss of returned packages.
