It’s the moment you all have been waiting for! We just recently updated our retail stock and got a whole load out of crash pads and bouldering buckets from Organic Climbing just in time for the outdoor climbing season to begin.

Organic climbing products are a favorite among climbers for their high quality material, sturdy structure, and unique, vibrant patterns. Each of their products are individually hand-crafted in the U.S.A and made one-of-kind. Below are descriptions of each product directly from Organic Climbing.


With a 36” x 48” landing surface, the Full Pad offers a full 4″ of high-quality cush’ for your bouldering enjoyment (1″ hard foam and 3″ soft foam). A 24″ x 15″ pocket flap securely carries your gear and keeps what you stuff in the pad from sliding out. When open for use, the pouch is designed to secure and cover your shoulder straps, making the hike home from a muddy or wet day a bit dryer. The Full Pad closes securely with simple and clean metal buckles and folds down to 36″ x 24″ x 8″ for hiking. Fully adjustable shoulder straps and a thick 2″ hip belt haul loads with ease. The Full Pad also features closure straps on the pocket flap that enable a Half Pad, Briefcase Pad, or Blubber pad to attach.


A streamlined version of the Full Pad, the Simple Pad is the same exact pad without the pocket. The go-to option for boulderers looking for the highest quality foam and fabrics without any added bells or whistles. This elegant pad closes securely via 4 simple metal buckle closures along the outside of the pad (3 along the 36” height and 1 on the bottom). For extra padding, the new slider easily fits inside when closed, for ease of transport.


The time-tested iconic bucket design provides a secure warehouse for your chalk supply. Burly 1000d nylon fabric is stiff, ensuring the Lunch Bag Bucket stays open while you’re bouldering. The bag seals with a ¾” hook and loop and then rolls down and clips like a boater’s dry bag. A big outer pocket, two elastic brush-loops and signature Organic colors round out this stylish, user-friendly bouldering necessity.


Members can enjoy an additional 10% all retail purchases including items from Organic Climbing. Stop by the retail area at your favorite Planet Granite to check out these great products from Organic Climbing!
