It all started when…

we at Friction Addiction rapidly outgrew the initial offering of FA. We noticed that more and more of our industry partners were looking after assistance, whether a casual chat on the phone to get their head around small facility issues, or bigger things from guidance on how to turn around a failing business, all the way to assistance with opening up climbing gyms.

We believe knowledge should be shared in the Australian climbing industry to grow the sport of climbing, grow the communities involved in the sport and eventually grow the whole industry. We want to do our part by working with you!
