Southern by the grace of God

We just cut the fabric for about 200 Crash Pads, so I figured this is the time for a little project, a favor to our homeboy in Atlanta, Chris Sierzant.

He wants a custom Crash Pad with the Confederate flag on top, where the shoe-cleaning upholstery fabric usually is. You can almost hear the Dixie National Anthem playing in the background.

More new holds

So I was adding up all the new shapes we've made in the last year. Care to take a guess on how many that is?

Over 500 new holds. That includes the reshaped Training Holds and the ones we just finished today. That's larger than some companies entire lines.

Obviously, this means we need to get our shit together and put new photos of these holds on the main Revolution website. Sorry for the delay on that, the last 5 months have been the busiest I can remember.

Here's what we've got finished today: XL Edges sets 1 and 2, XL Granite sets 1 and 2 (5 holds per set. We're also re-shaping a few of the XXL Slopers and there will be new sets of the Limestone Large 1 and 2. Peep the photos:

Vaya con Dios, Mixing Barrel

Our boy Chris Sierzant, owner of the Escalade Gym in Atlanta, and a few of his crew stopped by for a few days and we put them to work moving the Revolution shop.

For those of you who ever poured plastic for Pusher or Revolution (which is about 75% of the Salt Lake climbing community), we have a bit of nostalgia for you: the mixing barrel/tilt stand rig is no more.

This big-ass contraption mixed and poured about 2.5 million pounds of plastic, from Pusher, S7, Revolution and most recently, a line of custom climbing holds for Backyard Adventures.

A very brief service was held in its honor, then it was given away to a local scrap metal yard. See you in hell, giant chunk of iron.

We'll be movin' on up...

... like George Jefferson.

Yes, it's been almost a month since we put anything on the Blog site. Just busy.

We're moving to a new shop, which means we are putting all the machines, products, office stuff, etc. in a big-ass truck and driving about a half-mile down the road.

One thing that ain't going with us is the climbing wall. 14 feet high, starting at 50 degrees overhanging and curving to a level top-out. That's the benefit of high ceilings.

And it's up for grabs if anyone wants it, free. Here's a shot after we removed the panels and the studs:
