Climbing Holds with Scandinavian Touch

Kitka is a climbing holds company based in northern Finland. Around here we’ve got reindeers, northern lights, and very long & dark winters. It’s a perfect environment for indoor climbing.

Kitka holds are shaped with minimalistic and functional Scandinavian design, with a special focus on ergonomics. Everything we put onto a hold is there to be grabbed. Add a little bit of chalk, and you’re good to go.
