Grip Showcase Portland: New Climbing Holds and Volumes of Spring 2024

Grip Showcase Portland

Grip Showcase Portland

Congrats to SupR, winner of the CBJ Grip Showcase Portland!

There’s nothing quite like an aesthetic wall in a new climbing gym with a path of fresh, colorful holds leading the way up and a community of climbers looking on, ready to crush…

That was the scene at the Grip Showcase Portland for the official CWA Summit afterparty. Kudos to Portland Rock Gym for hosting a great event and space for all of us industry insiders to hang out and climb! It was awesome to see so many guest setters—many representing the sponsor brands—accompanying the ace in-house team at PRG. Everyone got to check out the first Titan Boulder in the U.S. while enjoying music, drinks, and good friends.

Every hold from every brand was beautiful and professionally made, but we must congratulate SupR for winning the vote for the Grip Showcase Portland Award! Everyone loved climbing on their new Shields family of holds. SupR also won the previous Grip Showcase, so major props are due!
