About Bold

Bold Climbing started out small, and with one, somewhat selfish goal–to bring world class volumes to the American gyms where we climb. In 2015, volumes in the IFSC were transforming global competition climbing, and the limited offerings in North America didn’t satisfy us, as setters or climbers. We wanted better texture, more exciting shapes, and solid construction. With Blocz, the #1 volume producer in the world, we got all of it. 

We quickly got involved in the USAC circuit, helping supply America’s best athletes with the tools they need to compete on the world stage. As the sport and the competition circuit grew and advanced, so did we–expanding our range to macros and holds, and bringing over as many iconic and innovative brands as we could handle. So now, when we (or you) go climbing, we can have it all.
