The Ground Up Gear Haul

In an effort to grow our reach, we want to do a good ol’ fashioned giveaway. Original, right? If you live in the following states, you can participate in our Ground Up Gear Haul: MI, IN, OH, KY, WV, VA, NC, SC, GA, FL, MS, AL, AR, TN (honor system please).


We believe that storytelling is the one of the greatest things about getting out. There’s nothing better than playing outside on splitter day. Second to that is sharing your story. We want to hear and see those stories in a series of three posts over three months: one in October, one in November and one in December.

October: In the first post, we are looking for the What: What gets you outside? What are you psyched on? What is your favorite sport/activity/hobby?  Seeing that this contest is starting in the middle of the month, contestants can enter as late as 11/15 but must post twice in November.

Tag @groundupclimbing and two friends in the photo. Mention two friends in your post or comments.  Hashtag the state you live in. Use #groundupgearhaul (not optional) #iwannawinalldatshit (optional)

November: In the second post, we are looking for the Where: Where do you go outside? Where do you want to go outside? Where is your favorite place to play?  

Tag @groundupclimbing and two friends in the photo. Mention two friends in the post or comments. Use #groundupgearhaul #iwannawinalldatshit (optional)

December: In the third post, we are looking for the Who: Who is your favorite person/people to go outside with? If you’re your own favorite person to go outside with, that’s cool! Tell us about yo’self!
