FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
16 MARCH 2022
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA - Climbing Anchors is excited to announce that we have been appointed the exclusive Australian distributor of Unleashed CIimbing holds. Combining Will’s hold shaping expertise and Climbing Anchors distribution network, this partnership aims to simplify how rock climbing gyms purchase climbing holds in Australia.
Designed by Will Watkins in Sydney Australia, Unleashed Climbing holds offers route setters and gym owners a line of climbing holds that are cost effective and easily available. Manufactured in Europe to meet international hold standards, Unleashed Climbing provides local gyms with access to 780+ shapes in addition to other international brands in our commercial hold range - RockCity (UK), NEO (ROK), Lynx (EU), and Metolius (USA).
Will is widely recognised for producing creative hold shapes using the best quality materials from Composite-X in Bulgaria, who are regarded in the industry as the leading polyurethane manufacturer of Dannomond. Fibreglass is manufactured by Walltopia. The distribution partnership will allow Will to focus solely on his expertise in shaping holds for a growing rock climbing gym market here in Australia.
With over two decades of experience in the UK and Australia, Will’s philosophy translates to his design ethic: “I was fascinated with the way holds should look and blend in to create a seamless transition to the wall.” In 2016, Will started Unleashed Climbing to build large families of holds that blend style and functionality, “from smooth lines of the Eclipse to the detail of the Drift” each hold design is “as comfortable and user friendly as possible”. Will has since received greater recognition across the industry having shaped holds for Kilter Grips (2018), featured in the Australian Nationals (2020) and recognised in the Climbing Business Journal Grip List (2021).
If you have already purchased Unleashed Climbing holds in Australia rest assured Climbing Anchors will continue the great service that Will provided you. The distribution partnership will simplify the ordering process and include sea freight costs, which will benefit hold pricing.
Available stock on hand can be viewed or purchased directly from the Climbing Anchors warehouse in Regents Park, NSW. Australian rock climbing gyms and route setters will be able to place orders at any time with a 12-week factory lead time (plus shipping time) with discounts available on forward orders placed in advance.
