The next evolution of our flagship hangboard. Combining unmatched comfort, improved design, and the utility of our former hangboard models, the Grindstone represents everything we’ve learned about designing and producing single piece hangboards.
The Grindstone is based around an asymmetrical edge layout to ensure equal grip spacing for each edge size to deliver a more consistent training stimulus.
The custom edge profile eliminates the typical pressure points of a standard rounded edge. Making it possible to train 4, 3, 2, or even 1 finger at a time without the need for designated pockets.

The Honestone is a purpose-built tool for preparing athletes for their hardest sends. We have incorporated all the necessities for climbers looking to push their limits.
We traded a top jug for a set of asymmetrically aligned slopers with continuously variable curvature and a skin-friendly macro-texture to offer a unique and trainable sloper experience.
1-finger pockets are one of the most demanding grips in climbing. We couldn’t (and wouldn’t) make them easy, so we settled on making them comfortable. As comfortable as 25mm 1-finger pockets can be.
For the large edge selection, we went with 20mm and 15mm edges with our custom edge radius for maximum comfort during repeated efforts and frequent training sessions.
For small edge selection, we provide 10mm and 8mm edges with a 1/8th inch edge radius to balance bite and comfort.
The center edge on the board is 25mm deep and incut at 10 degrees, with a custom edge radius and rounded inside corner. An edge that is designed specifically for 1-handed hanging progression.
Logo Crop Top$27.00
Simple and clean.
The loose/baggy style fits in different ways depending on your style preference.
Power Strips (Pair)$16.00
When Coach Nate Drolet approached us about a gap in today’s campus boards, we agreed that something was missing. We teamed up with our friends over at Power Company Climbing to create the Power Strips.
Sold as a pair and designed with both 10mm and 15mm edges, the Power Strips are wide enough to be an easy target, but compact enough to fit onto a busy campus board. The split design means you can get your thumb in on the training (if you choose to) and gives you the ability to place the strips at a width that suits your needs. And whenever you’re ready to change up the edge size, simply invert and reinstall the holds.
From advanced contact strength to foot-on endurance training, the Power Strips are the next logical step in your campus board training.
10mm and 15mm rounded wooden edges
5 inches x 2 inches
Metal screw inserts and hardware included.

Shoe Spray$2.99 – $20.00
This unique combination of natural cleaning, conditioning, and drying agents is specifically formulated to increase shoe rubber performance while protecting the rock from the polishing effect of dirty shoes.
It revives the tackiness of your shoes, allowing you to stick better to volumes and footholds. And no… it’s not just rubbing alcohol.
The Shoe Spray is a non-toxic, biodegradable, plant based climbing shoe cleaner. This unique solution is formulated to clean and restore climbing shoe rubber to its original tacky feel. Over time rubber becomes stiff and slick due to exposure to oxygen. The Shoe Spray is specially formulated to perform three key functions. First, the solution removes dirt and chalk leaving the shoe rubber free of debris. Second, the spray deoxidizes the rubber which restores it to its original tacky feel. Finally, the conditioning agent protects the rubber and helps maintain its tacky feel by slowing oxidation.
Small particles of dirt on your shoes act like sandpaper and can contribute to holds becoming polished. By removing dirt and other small particles you are helping prolong the life of the rock. While some amount of polishing is inevitable due to climbing, with clean shoes we can help reduce our impact on the rock. Shoe cleaning is one small change that can have a huge impact over the course of a lifetime of climbing.
Once your shoes are completely dry you can enjoy their enhanced performance. The alcohol in our solution acts as a drying agent to help your shoes dry fast so you can get back to climbing. We have found our spray to be incredibly useful for all types of climbing, but especially with volumes in gyms, climbing in cold weather, and on polished feet.
- Apply 2-3 sprays of Tension Climbing Shoe Spray to the climbing shoe rubber.
- Wait 10-20 seconds to allow the solution to deoxidize the rubber.
- Wipe off the remaining solution with a lint free cloth and allow rubber to air dry completely before climbing.
- Enjoy increased shoe rubber performance!
