Momentum Bouldering

     It's nice to see a grass roots business springing to life in Yorkshire in these austere times.  Gareth, the founder of Momentum Bouldering, works in his kitchen in the little village of Austwick in the Yorkshire Dales, a seemingly unlikely business premises when you consider the products he makes.  Creating a new range of chalk bags, buckets and bouldering mats, his ideas are to create top quality products, rugged and functional and using only the best materials.

Momentum was featured recently on UKClimbing.

     Having recently checked out some of Momentum's prototype mats I was incredibly impressed.  Not only were they looking and feeling great but it was good to hear about the effort that has gone into research and development, in particular using different foam types that will set them apart from many other mats.  More technical talk can be found on Momentum's Blog.
