Join the Gang! Memberships available once again for DRCC holds! March 24, 2016 13:35

The Detroit Rock Climbing Company is happy to announce the return of our monthly Gang Membership and Holds Subscription!

The Gang Membership is geared towards the pro-routesetters, climbing hold connoisseurs and collectors. To those looking to have the latest and greatest DRCC climbing holds, before they’re available anywhere else.

But wait... there's more!  

You will also get goodies that are exclusive only to our Gang members. Starting with a new members welcome pack. Which includes a DRCC gang shirt plus a couple of other little surprises.

  • You will have and own the newest DRCC creations a full one month before they are available anywhere else. We regularly create new designs and only the best will ever do. Sometimes many small holds and sometimes giant features.
  • Premium Gang Members (Limited number of Premium Memberships available) - 30% more holds... and then some!
    This is the greatest value, plus has other unique perks. It is essentially the same as the standard Gang membership but we send you over 30% more holds with every order! But there is a catch, we ask that you participate a little bit with us. (details below)
  • In addition to your holds, we’ll also send you exclusive extras with every shipment. These could be functional prototype holds, early versions, limited run holds, short pours, or modified mold holds. And may be cool novelty items such as refrigerator magnets, bottle openers, etc. It’s a bonus surprise. Better than any Cracker Jack.

To become a Premium Gang Member you agree to give us your feedback on every new set. We also require that you share images or video with us of how you use and have fun with our holds. You may post directly to the current social networks or send them directly to us. And then allow us to use this media in our social networks and possibly other advertisements.


Premium Gang Membership is available with any level of Gang Membership.

We have three levels of Gang Membership available.


Silver - $49.95 per month

Gold - $99.95 per month

Platinum - $149.95 per month

The holds that we will send you in every shipment will be based on the weight to ensure a fair value every time.

Here is an example: if the newest set of holds has 10 pieces and they are on the large side then with the silver level you might get 3 or 4 pieces in the set, the gold level 5-6 pieces, and the platinum level would be the whole set. And the Premium gang member agreement, you would get extra holds (not necessarily the newest set but something good) in exchange for your feedback that we can share on social media. It helps us spread the word and learn what you guys like or don’t like about our holds.


By signing up for this subscription you are agreeing to allow us to enable Automatic Recurring Billing (A.R.B.) in the amount you select, Once per month for one (1) full year. When you sign up for a gang membership, we will contact you personally via phone or email to confirm that you agree to the A.R.B. payments and to the requirements of Premium Membership if selected.

You may cancel your membership at anytime however there is a cancellation fee of 50% of one months payment.

Footwork February. Four Fantastic Tips for Fabulous Footwork. February 05, 2016 13:39

Good footwork goes a long way for rock climbing. Here are four fantastic tips for fabulous footwork.

4. Fancy Feet
This is a training exercise that will help you to better understand how your feet positions affect your climbing. On easier routes, make a conscience effort to move your feet at least twice for every hand move you make. Work on inside edges of your feet, outside edges, switching feet on a hold, flagging, etc.

3. Strong Toes
This is a mindset to have as you climb. Make a conscience effort to push more with your feet by feeling the pressure of your weight on your toes, and increase it while simultaneously lessening the energy of your grip. Think about it.

2. Be Precise / Quiet Feet
Be deliberate, precise and quiet. Look directly where you want your foot to go, and put it right there.

1. Take advantage of DRCCs February Footwork special and get 10 FREE FOOTHOLDS for every hundred bucks you spend.

 


'tis The Season! October 14, 2015 11:46

Cooler temperatures are here in the northern hemisphere… For us that means trips to our favorite outdoor climbing spots in the Southeastern U.S. Yay!
It also means we’ve been extra busy in between those climbing trips gearing up for the indoor climbing season. We’re upgrading our website by adding new product images in high resolution and 360 degrees. And more features and functions are in the works.

And all the while we’ve been keeping active in the social media scene so if your out there… connect with us. Including LIVE video broadcasts via “Periscope” a new App from Twitter. Tour the workshop or just hang out with us in the shaping studio (on that note) while we work hard to bring you over a hundred new shapes before the years out.

And finally... climbing competition season is here too. We enjoy being involved in that bunch of fun so if you’re hosting a comp and seeking sponsorship, consider us. Our hangboards make great prizes and our trophies are coolest.

A few things we already sponsor - Backyard Bouldering Series, RRG Fixed Gear Initiative, RRGCC, Planet Rock Climbing Team, ABC Boulder Climbing Team, and more.


New Website Going Live in 3... 2... uhh... wait... August 31, 2015 11:11

Well it's been a couple of challenging months for us here. Getting our new websites functionalities to all function properly. I think we've got it good to go now though. There are some "bells and whistles" yet to be added including high resolution product photos and videos. 

Most importantly orders are processing and you can get your dose of DRCC climbing holds and training gear. 

Amongst the upgrades coming is: better bulk orders for climbing gyms, retailers, and distributers. In the meantime climbing gyms may simply shop as usual but check out with the discount code "gym" to get your special discount. 

And of course you can always call us directly with your order and we'll take care of you over the phone. Monday through Friday 10AM to 6PM EST. (734) 744-7314
