Defying Gravity would like to welcome our newest competition sponsor Rocky Mountain Climbing Gear. Rocky Mountain Climbing Gear uses recycled materials to manufacture rock climbing holds. Owner Carl Keene has worked in the aerospace industry for over 16 years, building and designing high performance, composite aircraft parts. While working in aerospace, Carl was always looking for a way to use the materials that he saw being wasted on a daily basis. Carl now recycles everything from plastics to epoxy, to make a strong and durable, very realistic nontoxic climbing hold products. Rocky Mountain Climbing Gear holds have been tested our all environments. Our test holds have been smashed, beaten, thrown and left out in the elements. Rocky Mountain Climbing Holds will not chip, crack or fade in any environment.
