A gorgeous day up in Montreal filming random people off the street climbing the Boulderboard for the TV show  Le Banc D'Essai Du Peuple (The People's gadgets to any of us non francophones out there).

We had about a dozen different people up on the wall. I was very impressed with everyone's willingness to step out of their comfort zone and try something different. The show airs October 2nd and all of us non-French-Canadians can checkit out online here: http://www.ztele.com/emissions/le-banc-d-essai-du-peuple/emission 


The good people at coloradocrackgear.com have taken the time to give us some good insight into the gear needed to supplement a home climbing wall and some of the safety considerations that we should all take to keep training and climbing for many years to come. The info is so good that I've broken it into several posts. This first post will be all about the gear that you can use to maximize your home training.Enjoy!

Safety & Gear Considerations for In-Home Climbing Walls
Working out on an in-home climbing wall can be a lot of fun. It can also
help you develop your climbing skills and get you some excellent exercise.
But before you jump into the world of at-home indoor climbing, there are
some things to take into consideration, namely staying safe and getting the
right gear.


Yep, you can ice climb inside now. And I don't mean dry tooling on chain links or hanging on urethane holds waiting for the plastic to crack. 

A relatively new company, Iceholdz, has been perfecting the process of usable indoor ice features for a couple years and they are really turning out a usable, and unique, product. Think of a healable cutting mat, but harder, and 3 dimensional. The maleable plastic of the icehold can be used hundreds of times before your pick won't stick anymore. Iceholdz even recycle old holds and offer you discounts on the replacements.
A lot of people ask these questions: How do they feel? or Do they even work?


 That's right! We're going to be posting up our tour schedules, the latest news around the shop, some info about our friends, some awesome climbing news, and whatever else comes to our minds. 

Feel free to comment, request specific articles, and ask questions! We'd love to hear as much from you as you'll hear from us.

We're going to have a busy year with a lot of events, some new products, and more and more training information. We'll get you climbing better, stronger, and longer. Or we'll just get you in shape if climbing's not your thing.

Come on in, grab some nachos, and enjoy!
