A short history of Figfour development 2004 - 2010

By Pete Dollman


It was way back in 2004 that Pete began developing a tool that could simulate the actions of dry tooling and ice climbing indoors without damaging the holds. The initial prototypes were simply knotted lengths of rope but these soon progressed to a wooden shaft while studying product design at Dundee University. Since joining Alpkit Pete has developed the product further which importantly has included an intensive testing period before launching the product.
