Pongoose Climber 700 Launch

August 01, 2017

The Pongoose Climber 700 launch is finally here! So PSYCHED!!! 

The journey to this point has been a long and crazy adventure, but the launch is here at last! It's very exciting to be making it official and getting the Pongoose Climber 700 to market after many years of prototypes and challenges in the manufacturing process. From concept to launch, there has been blood, sweat and tears, but Pongoose is proud to finally be releasing the first multi-directional 3in1 clipstick, brushing stick and camera boom, that also retrieves quickdraws. There will always be people who will be happy taping a quickdraw, brush or action camera to the end of a stick, but for those of you that want something better quality that will last, there is finally a product that hopefully ticks all your boxes.

Pongoose would not be at this point now without the support and skills of family and friends. It has been a humbling time when people have gone out of their way in the climbing community to help in any way they could to get this project off the ground. Very special thanks goes to:

Katie - my fantastic wife and climbing partner

My parents and Auntie Val 

Steph - the 'Pongoose' sister-in-law

Luke A - the genius 3D guy

Paulski - logo creater and artist 

Aaron L - the cutter guy

Sam & Emmie - the 'After the Send' photographer dude and model

Tom E - Osprey sales guru

Sam B - film man extraordinaire

Marti H - Rockfax pin-up clipstick tester

Andy W - website SEO genius

Freddie N - The Project Climbing Centre's brushing stick road tester

Ian C - Flash's inspiration spreader

and all the other climbers and non-climbers that have been supportive, given advice, shared social media posts and given feedback. There are too many to mention by name!

Thank you everyone.

All the best.

Rob.
