Malcolm Smith launches Stonesmith Holds

Malcolm Smith and The Climbing Academy came together 6 months ago to start making holds for climbing walls, and so Stonesmith was born.

Malcolm's history is one of training hard and climbing harder. Hubble (now 9a) at the age of 18, the first ascents of Monk Life Font 8b+ and Hunger 9a are all testament to his hard work on steep boards and his obsessional attention to detail, but barely scratch the surface of his tick list.

Malc brings that attention to detail to the way he carves holds. Creative and aesthetic, they're all brilliantly designed to work on a variety of angles and to give you a real climbing experience, and just some of the Smith training effect.

The video will give you an idea of what's coming but take a look at and get your order in.
