The Story

In 2019 our amazing Singapore climbing community came together to provide climbing shoes to youth climbers in Cambodia. It was extremely successful with over 200 shoes donated and distributed!

This year, we are organising another climbing shoe donation drive to support climbers in Badami, India. Climbing equipment is costly, and getting equipment and shoes is out of their budget. Right now most of their equipment is old and damaged.

Let's support the climbing community by donating your unwanted, but useable climbing shoes.

We are partnering with Climbing For A Reason, their objective is aimed at bringing climbing to the world’s most remote and disadvantaged communities, which, however, are fortunate enough to live near rocks perfect for climbers

How to support?

You can support by:

  • Donating your unwanted (but decent condition) climbing shoes to the participating climbing gyms in Singapore. Full Crimp Milk will be giving you one free 100ml liquid chalk and exclusive stickers for each pair of donated climbing shoes (refer to instructions below for more information on donation)
  • Get exclusive limited addition Casual.SG shorties on this page by donating above $55 sgd. The exclusive colour represents the red sandstone rock in Badami, India and has the Climbing For A Reason logo (refer below for more info)
  • Get Full Crimp Milk liquid chalk & stickers on this page by donating above $15 sgd, you can choose to donate the chalk to youth climbers instead (refer below for more info)

How will the funds raised be used?

The bulk of funding will help to substitute our costs to get the equipment there. Badami is a rural town in a very remote part of Karnataka, India and logistics to getting equipment there isn’t easy. While most of the gear is donated by our local Singapore climbing community, there will be some other equipment e.g. for bolting that will be purchased using the funds raised. Any cost that is not covered will be paid by me, so no matter whether we raise enough, be rest assured that your donated gear will make it to Badami. Any other funds raised above the required amount will be donated to support other Climbing For A Reason projects and gear donation drives in the future.

Why are we doing this?

As a climber, climbing has brought joy to many of us. This time we are partnering with Climbing For A Reason to help bring this joy to more youth climbers around the world, specifically in Badami, India. In Singapore we are fortunate enough to have easy access to climbing equipment and many climbers here have spare gear that they no longer use. Why not give it a better home?

How to donate climbing shoes?

Before donating, ensure that the shoes you want to donate are in relatively decent condition (see images attached), that means:

  • Not too smelly
  • Sole condition - can be worn out, but NO complete holes
  • Shoe upper - small holes are fine, broken velcro / laces are fine

Visit one of our participating climbing gyms in Singapore and look for the donation box.

Place a note with your email address written onto it into the shoes. We will email you a code to claim your Full Crimp Milk 100ml liquid chalk.

Participating climbing gyms:

  • Boulder Planet
  • Lighthouse Climbing
  • Boulder Plus
  • BFF Climb
  • Boulder Movement (Downtown)
  • Ground Up Climbing
