As a boutique bouldering gym located only 11 minutes away from the CWA Summit, we are elated to host the climbing industry in our home town of Loveland, CO.

In collaboration with the CWA, we will be offering our gym as a resource to the climbing hold industry. Rather than just drooling over the holds hanging in your booth, you can send patrons our way to actually climb on them, in a curated gallery setting. The concept has been very well received, and we are excited to make this a reality.

We look forward to hosting and promoting your brand in our gym. When you arrive in Loveland, you will find us waiting like an eager flock of teenagers behind stage at a Justin Bieber concert; more than psyched to meet the folks who make the shapes this industry depends on, and adores.


 

An entire gym reserved for a hold industry takeover

4,000 sf of bouldering terrain

minimal, aesthetic, and accessible lines

crafted from the latest shapes in the industry

A myriad of eager fingers, ready to grasp

 

HOW WE SEE THIS WORKING

  • We will have room for 25-35 boulders (think one boulder every ~10 linear feet).

  • We plan to strip our entire gym Sunday, May 12th and start setting new boulders.

  • Setting can be managed by our team, however, you (and any setter friends) are invited to assist with this process.

  • For the sake of accessibility, we plan to set V1-V6 (let us know if you have specific grades you want us to hit with your shapes).

  • Each boulder can be labeled with any marketing materials you provide (think bolt-able, wall mounted, up to ~3 square feet).

  • Feel free to add The Shape Gallery to any promotional materials you bring to the CWA.

  • The Shape Gallery after-party is scheduled for Friday the 17th, after all CWA programming. Climbing, then Beer.

  • We will be offering a discounted day pass of $10 for any CWA pass holder. You will get 3 free passes for you and your team.

  • We ask nothing for compensation, except for the opportunity to keep your shapes at the sweetest discount you can provide:)

    • We are not obligated to purchase your holds, if only we could…


HOW TO PARTICIPATE

  1. Fill out the little form dude below.

  2. Marc (our Head Setter) will be in touch with you to pick colors and shapes. You get them poured and shipped.

  3. Ideally, the holds should arrive at our gym before Saturday, May 11th, so we have time to organize the sets/colors/wall location/density.

  4. Include any marketing and promotional materials for us to mount adjacent to each boulder.

  5. Invite the industry to climb your shapes. Use any and all media outlets. Smoke signals work too.
