ABOUT ICP

ICP Cares About the Climbing Community

ICP Route Setting Masterclass

Why we do what we do:
Get amazing climbs into the hands of climbers

That is the goal that excites us. That drives us. That motivates us through the late nights and early mornings. Whether it’s providing beautiful walls, sleek holds or state of the art route setting, everything we do is driven by the need to get more amazing climbs out into the world.

ICP Wall Installers

We do it all for your wall:
Design, build, deliver, install, route set and provide maintenance

Keeping climbers safe is something we believe and practice every day. We helped write the book on climbing wall standards, literally (our CEO was a consultant when the standards were being drawn up). We have the best boulder matting on the planet – clients using our custom safety mats have far less incidents than climbing gym industry averages.

LET’S GET STARTED

ICP HISTORY AND MAJOR EVENTS

The story begins with ICP CEO and Director Robert Parer. Rob has been a heavy influence on the climbing scene not only in Brisbane and Queensland, but also at a national level and beyond. Competing for fun, coaching for over 12 years and setting at least 5000 routes over the last 20 years, Rob understands everything climbing and loves promoting the industry.

ICP was formed in 2009 to address shortcomings in climbing accessories. Originally we were building training boards, specifically streamlined boards that sat nicely above door frames. Rob then wanted to build home climbing walls and started pouring his own holds in the 4m² foyer of his apartment block.

In 2012 we established the ICP Social Series which ran for around 3 years, bringing together local gyms through a range of themed nights. ICP also brought out Chris Sharma from the States to give a series of presentations across Australia in 2013. Rob was on the board for Sport Climbing Australia and was one of two founders who setup and ran Sport Climbing Queensland.

It was around this time ICP partnered with Walltopia and started selling climbing walls in Australia using overseas installers. A few years later we created our own design department and formed our own installer team so now we could do complete wall builds on our own – from start to finish.

In 2019 ICP established its own factory in Europe to get access to the best climbing wall materials in the world. We then started designing and building our own boulder matting because we thought “we can do better and safer”.
