For this unique cross-industry collaboration, Far Yeast Brewing teamed up with rock climbing gym, HIROS UP! CLIMBING CLUB and local digital fabricator, TSUKURUZA to create the “Nobo-Con” Climbing Board to help beginner and intermediate rock climbers improve their climbing technique from the comfort of their own home. The “Nobo-Con” Climbing Board is named after the Nobo-Con rock climbing competition held annually in September.
In commemoration of this release, Far Yeast Brewing launched two unique product sets containing either 6 or 12 cans of beer, a climbing board, and a hotsprings towel on their online store on Wednesday, July 15th. Far Yeast has been working to connect climbers and craft beer culture for several years, supporting climbing club events including “Nobo-Con”, held by HIROS UP! CLIMBING CLUB, and “Beer Session”, held by Fish and Bird climbing gym in Koto-Ku, Tokyo. Although all climbing events were canceled this year due to the rise of COVID-19, Far Yeast hopes to continue supporting the climbing community through the development and sale of the Nobo-Con Climbing Board.
Currently, there are many training tools for advanced climbers in the market. However, there were few tools for beginner/intermediate climbers to train at home. Nowadays, COVID-19 prevents climbers from training in gyms or at outdoor public spaces, but with the Nobo-con board, beginner and intermediate climbers can train at home.
Under the supervision of Mr. Hiroki Ota, the representative of HIROS UP! CLIMBING CLUB, Nobo-Con Climbing Boards are produced by neighboring Kosuge village company, TUKURUZA, using their digital fabrication technology.
