Our sport is growing fast! It will make its Olympic debut at Tokyo 2020. It’s an exciting time and we’re stoked to be helping it grow through our giving back programs.
Competition Series Grant Program
Climbing is entering the Olympic games for the first time ever at the 2020 games in Tokyo!! We understand that to compete at this high level means great coaching, physiotherapy, weight training programs and, of course, as much competition experience as you can get. All of this comes at a significant cost and we want to try and hep out where possible.
Flashed is proud to announce a grant program to directly support Athletes in their pursuit of climbing competition excellence! The program launched July 1st, 2018 and a portion of the proceeds from select performance driven products are collected and awarded to athletes.
Our team of athletes consists of outdoor developers, photographers, routesetters as well as world class competition climbers and we try to help them achieve their goals and dreams while they help us develop the best gear.
Local climbing area access and initiatives
Launched in 2019, the Drifter bouldering pad will be offered in two versions, plain and Limited Edition (LE). The LE will be used to showcase different bouldering areas around North America. We’ll endeavor to work with an artist to paint a local scene of the chosen area which reflects it’s essence. Some of the proceeds from the LE will then be set asside and donated to local climbing access groups or towards initiatives to improve the area for climbers.
The first area selected for this will be Squamish, BC. All collected funds will be donated to the Squamish Access Society and we’ll keep you updated on how the project helps climbers who visit the area. Let’s all work together to improve and preserve these beautiful places!
