New Training Room Toys – Bison Grips
Bison Grips manufacture high quality pinches and training tools to help you project your climbing goals. Made by climbers for climbers, each one of their products is a reflection of their dedication to the climbing community and mutual passion to improve on the wall, at the crag and in the gym.
So what makes them so special? All of their products are entirely handmade and precision shaped using custom tooling in their workshop, bespoke processes that they continue to hone and perfect as our product range evolves. Their commitment to using tough hardwoods such as European Ash ensures their products provide an optimal texture for training that matures with continued use whilst remaining smooth and finger-friendly, improving as you improve.
Bison Grips understand that you don’t need to be strong to get strong, and whether you’re new to climbing or looking to push your physical limits to the next level we’ll be able to help. The only prerequisites are a bag of chalk and a dash of persistence.

Congratulations Dave Rose!
There are only a handful of Climbing Development Coaches in the Midlands and currently only 60 nationwide. Our very own David Rose can now proudly count himself in this small group of coaches trying to help people attain their climbing dreams.
Quote from Daves assessor:-
“Climbing and particularly indoor climbing is coming of age, and I can’t think of a better skilled coach to support this at Redpoint Birmingham. Dave has huge amounts of experience with a diverse range of climbers, he has the knack to developing emphatic communication very quickly with his coachees, and always gets results!”
I think everyone wants to improve their climbing? Why not book an assessment with Dave and plan how to attain that goal.
