Over the years we often get setters and shapers asking what foam we use. We want to see shaping professionalize and our desire is to make it easy for new shapers to enter the game. We are happy to help navigate a start into shaping and offer our foam and this starter tool kit as a way to make it easy for you. We use a high density Trymers 4000 foam for the majority of our shaping. If you prefer a softer foam we have sourced Smithers Oasis Sahara 2 green 4lb foam (much of the Kingdom Climbing line). As your shaping needs grow we recommend sourcing foam directly from the manufactures where buying a refrigerator sized block gets your price point down. The shaping tool kits are the basics needed to get your shaping journey started. We are listing out the exact items in our kit so you have the ability to source these tools online as you need replacements. If you need an individual tool feel free to email orders@escapeclimbing.com with the request.
