LYN [ˈlyˀn] is the Danish word for lightning, the sudden electrostatic discharge of energy in the atmosphere, and derived from the Danish word for light, lys [ˈlyˀs]. In english, LYN is also a name, short for LYNN, which instantly makes you think of one of the most inspiring and talented climbers of all times. Like the stroke of lightning, the idea for the first Slate Woodies hit us, but it has taken almost a year of dedicated effort to bring our new shapes into life. LYN is the best name we can think of for our first line of revolutionary new big shapes, which raises the bar and sets a new standard in natural shaping.
Nature Climbing Slate Woodies are made exclusively from carefully selected strong UK slate and European FSC certified oak. Our shapers handpick the raw material. After the selection, every single wood base and slate piece is cut on high precision machinery, shaped and finished by hand. The slate is then attached to the wood base relying on our years of experience in working with wood and stone. The result: a line of natural climbing holds that are made out of 99% natural materials, comparable in weight to artificial holds, has a lot more mileage.
Our SHIELDED series relies on a gentle treating of the wood as you would a wooden surfboard. The wood base is treated with Eco Epoxy (and a touch of magic) to achieve a completely water-sealed and slick surface. Our SHIELDED series are made especially for commercial setting, where long lasting durability, easy maintenance, and durability when it comes to using high pressure cold water for cleaning are top priority.
Our RAW series keeps the surface and friction of the wood natural, resulting in the most stunning natural climbing hold we have ever created. Use sandpaper for cleaning the wood base; brushing and cold water for cleaning the slate surface.
