Arctic Grips

Sparked in Trondheim, Norway, as an Australian, a Nordlending and a Trønder, (with a dash of Stavanger in there also), were having a well deserved coffee break from their weekly route setting session; impatient creativity, and an ambition to spice up their boulder problems inspired a conversation leading up to the launch of Arctic Grips.

Aiming to be a local, yet global provider of handcrafted, inspiring new school climbing holds, we are excited to see the launch of our little company fitting timely into the boasting movement of the climbing community both locally and abroad. Using our years of experience as both route setters and climbers, with a slightly odd and mixed background from carpentry, bike repair and audio/visual arts, we hope to meet the demand for progressive and inspiring new climbing holds. Keeping our northern roots alive whilst converting our inspirations, lead by the spectacularity of nature, into indoor climbing holds can -and should be a daunting task- and we do it in awe.
