Revolution & Pusher Closing Up Shop In The U.S.

Unfortunate news from The Cordless Group, parent company of Revolution pads and Pusher holds:

To keep this company going, I am facing a hard reality; make huge financial investments into the company and make big ethical compromises. But I am not able to do either of those things right now. That’s how it goes.

On December 19th, 2014, The Cordless Group (Pusher and Revolution) in North America will be closing shop indefinitely. We will still continue producing and selling our holds from our manufacturing spot in Germany and ship them anywhere in the world.

Lots of good history in that post about the backstory of Cordless, Pusher and Revolution.

My formative years in climbing were spent climbing indoors on those classic Pusher shapes and bouldering outside over those classic Cordless pads.  They will definitely be missed.

Dave Pegg, Prominent Climber And Guidebook Publisher Is Gone

DPM‘s Mikey Williams, writing about the passing of Dave Pegg:

Dave founded Wolverine Publishing in the early 2000s and quickly changed the landscape of climbing guidebooks forever. His first major publication was a collaborative effort with author Ray Ellington on a guidebook to the Red River Gorge. It had all the elements we now expect from a quality guide: full color action shots, essays written by prominent locals, digital images of the cliff face with the topo lines drawn in, and thorough, entertaining route descriptions. Over the last decade, Wolverine Publishing seized the reins as the leader in quality guidebooks releasing dozens of books to America’s most popular climbing areas like Smith Rock, Rifle, Maple Canyon, Bishop, Hueco, and the New River Gorge.

Dave Pegg

Sad news from Rock & Ice about the passing of prolific route developer and guidebook publisher Dave Pegg:

To say that Dave was a serious climber is an understatement. Rifle, and then Main Elk Canyon, were his loves, and he was one of those people you could find on the rock, in any weather, just about every day. Dave was perpetually eager, always beaming about a project or near send even when his knees and shins were bloodied and scabbed—I never saw them any other way—from working kneebars.
