Iron it! Climbing! is a clothing brand born in Feb. 2012 in Fontainebleau and developed in Barcelona by two climbers. Its concept arises as a literal Spanish translation from "planchar la vía" (iron the route) which in slang is the way to say you have sent a line.
During a Rock Trip in the french boulder Mecca, we met an Irish gang. They were strong climbers and that morning they were fully committed to succeed in a hard line which had been trying in the previous days. It was their last chance, next morning a plane will be waiting to take them back home. That day the boulder seemed to be harder, the grip was not good, and the motivation was lowering down but the glory of sending the project was too close to let it go. We had to find a way to encourage those fellows to keep on pushing the hardest they could to grab the top so from the deepest part of our soul the most fanatic yell roared in the magical forest...
- Come on dudes! You gotta Iron it!
Like a sacred gobbled, the doors of Heaven had been opened and the boulder was utterly cruised... They had accomplished the goal!
Late in night, while celebrating the day, when the atmosphere got too murky and the number of beers got lost, we all realized the importance of that sentence... Its power could not be kept as a secret. For the Jesus nails we had to spread out the iron among all climbers...
May the Iron be with you!
The aim of this project is to depict the passion lived in the world of climbing.
Iron it! wants to reinforce the power of those who fight till death in the vertical battlefield.
It has born as definition of hard climbing and the worst enemy of the acid lactic. Iron it! is the perfect partner for your ultimate sendings.
In order to achieve it, we work hard developing the greatest designs and creating the coolest climbing clothing for your ultimate sendings!
