Only, compared to other stores I've seen (including other Sport Chalets), they had considerably more climbing merchandise. In fact, I think every mountain boot I've bought is from there, which is saying something considering I live nowhere near there.
The riverside sport chalet is just getting back into selling climbing stuff after a period of not stocking anything. They are good for things like webbing and maybe a harness, but lately they only had two pairs of climbing shoes in stock for about six months. And when I say to pairs I don't mean two styles I mean a set of coyotes in size ten and a set of something else in womans size 2. PLus they have not stocked dry ropes until about a month ago.
