The roots of Lapis™ extend to the year 1991, when Aljoša Grom started carving his first climbing holds. Born out of a passion for climbing and route setting his first products were an inspiration to many climbers and route-setters. It had also sparked the attention of Jaka Schlamberger, a successful entrepreneur.  With his knowledge of business, brands and brand development acquired through years of experience coupled with his Masters in Economics from the University of Vienna, Jaka saw huge potential in developing a brand of climbing holds. Together they decided to create a partnership forming the Lapis™ brand. Today the brand carries over 2500 different climbing holds.
