In History – A Look At Climbing Mats of the Past
Rope climbing mats have come a long way in the last 100 years. It is rumoured that Pierre Allain was using mats made of straw (like a door mat) in the late 1930’s. In 1984 Ron Kauk used stolen mattresses on wooden pallets on some climbs in the Yosemite. There are also some mentions of sofa cushions being wrapped in duct tape again used on wooden pallets.
By the mid 80’s indoor rope climbers were using old offcuts of carpet to help keep their shoes clean. It didn’t really offer any padding but it did help with abrasions. Soon climbers started sewing pieces of carpet foam (underlay), sheets of lightweight rubber and carpet together. A while later some started attaching handles and sometimes including a hinge to help with maneuverability during transportation.
Many think of the Sketch Pad, released in 1992, as the first commercialised climbing mat.
