Here at Kinetik we believe that a climbing company has a responsibility to the climbing community to help foster the progression of the sport, as well as a responsibility to the athletes we endorse. Typically climbing companies sponsor athletes that are pushing the limits of the sport by giving them free gear and sometimes a small stipend. Once these athletes are no longer able to climb hard enough for the company to trade on the athletes name recognition, the support goes away. At Kinetik we want to do things a little differently. We sponsor people that climb hard, but also people who use their talents to pursue a life long passion that is there long after the ascents that gave them a name in this sport are over.  If you feel you or someone you know can help us move our sport and our dream forward, please e-mail us at
