The roots of Lapis™ extend to the year 1991, when Aljoša Grom started carving his first climbing holds. Borne out of a passion for climbing and route setting his first products were an inspiration to all climbers and Climbing gyms. It had also attracted the attention of Jaka Schlamberger, a successful entrepreneur who had first introduced Slovenia to some of skate and snowboard's most successful brands. With his knowledge of business, brands and brand development acquired through years of experience coupled with his Masters in Economics from the University of Vienna, Jaka saw huge potential in developing a brand of climbing holds. Together they decided to create a partnership forming the Lapis™ brand. Today the brand carries over 1200 different climbing holds, a vast array of unique training accessories, climbing structures, the world renowned 'Lapis™ Brush' and a small complementary selection of clothing. Testimony to the brand's success is the products feature in some of the world's best climbing gyms, are used in competitions worldwide and are found in many stores globally.
All Lapis™ Climbing holds are designed in accordance with safety standards: EN 12572-3 and EN 71-3.
