Connect Climbing is Our Newest Favorite Brand
Three Reasons we are Psyched on Connect Climbing
1. The founder, Glen Ritter, grew up in Ohio and cut his climbing teeth here at the New River Gorge and the sandstone of Tennessee. We know him, and he knows and loves the New. He acquired his business expertise working for Black Diamond but he wanted to do something more soulful so after decades in the outdoor industry he started his own company.
2. Connect Climbing tees have fresh, fun designs. The tees Glenn made specifically for us and our region have been selling like mad.
3. “We are the brand that gives back. Connect Climbing was founded on the concept of creating a climbing brand focused on the core values of supporting the climbing community and the crags in which we play.” Hear, Hear!! Connect Climbing gives an astonishing 20% of their profits to climbing related causes. We have already received checks for New River Alliance of Climbers for the tees we have sold.
These days, as the Outdoor Industry becomes increasingly corporatized and bottom line sensitive, we salute companies like Connect Climbing that realize that the values of stewardship and giving back to the sport we love need to be nurtured. We are proud to represent this brand.
