"Aren't climbing hold brands meant to be started in a garage?"
Upah was started in 2019 in Porto, Portugal. Foam and tools on the table and a full week shaping that block into 150 different shapes.
Every step of the process is made in-house, from the shaping, to the molding and all the way to the pouring.
Our PU formula has been through a lot of changes and now we believe to have achieved the quality we were searching for.
The brand was launched in March 2020, with the Mongos collection, a series that we believe to represent the basics of a climbing hold. Every day of gym training and rock climbing experience was put on to those holds, something we strive to continue doing.
