Although officially founded in 2003, Cypher can trace it's roots back decades before. In the early 1970's Mike Sturm closed his business, Eiger Mountain Sports Corp, a climbing distributor and manufacturer from the late 1950's and 60's. Mike quickly got to work building a similar climbing program. This climbing gear was sold under the Liberty Mountain name until the early 1980's when it was changed to Advanced Base Camp (ABC). In 2003, it was reborn as Cypher with updated equipment, materials, and mindset. For every problem, there is a solution and Cypher works tirelessly to figure them out so you can send at your best!
Seeing others experience the outdoors through the world of climbing is what motivates us here at Cypher. Because of this, we create quality products that help you get outside - no matter your age or climbing ability. Whether you're gearing up for your first multi-pitch adventure, spending a day at the local crag or just training at the gym, count on Cypher gear to make your experience safe and enjoyable.
Cypher Ambassadors are climbers who, just like us, have a passion for crack jamming, technical sport climbs, and powerful boulder problems. They have climbed around the world including sought after crags in Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, & France. They send hard, but more importantly have a blast on their climbing adventures and sharing their experiences. Learn more about Cypher's Ambassadors here.
Whether you're a newcomer to climbing, a weekend warrior who gets after it when they can, a young gun with a thirst to project and get stronger, or just an adventurous soul who loves to seek out new thrills...Cypher has the solution. Our gear is built for anyone with a spirit to climb on. Follow us on social media and tag #cypherclimbing on your adventures. We can't wait to see your epic climbs!
