      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Rock Shoe Naming Contest

Recommended Posts

The Shoe Formerly Known as the Rad Moc

 

Hello Fellow Northwest Climbers,

 

We need some help renaming our Rad Moc. Whoever has the best name gets a free pair and others with clever names might get some swag anyways. But it will have to be pretty clever.

 

They are an awesome slipper style shoe with a single strap over the top to ensure they stay put while heel hooking. The 3D compression molded climbing rubber leads into a descent tread on the sole. Great for cracks and face climbing.

 

Thanks for your help!

Gotta love Lawyers :rolleyes: especially one's from L.A. First thought would be the Kardashian or perhaps the Cochran or even better yet the Shapiro but to avoid further run ins with scum of the earth lawyers, why don't you call it "THE GLOVE" ;) or would that cause another riot :)

How about the Trad Moc?

 

Alternatively, the Gecko, and Kermit the Shoe, and high moc come to mind.

 

Also what about naming it after a route/area in the PNW - the Malamute, Chief, Index, ect

Green and "Organic Hemp foot beds" ...Grass Moc?

 

Or a pair of Benjamins - b/c their green and worth that much? but in that case you got to print them with a overly xeroxed and contrary pattern of Benjamins - would be really cool

I love 'em I love 'em keep them coming. Since we are the first and only climbing shoe company in the Pacific Northwest (and if someone can lay claim to someone who was here first, please educate me) I am not opposed to something PNW themed.

 

Thanks to everyone participating and brain storming - this is fun.

How about: The Shoe is on the Other Foot Now, its Not So Fun is it Young Chu?. Now you know how Charles Cole Feels.

 

That's kind of long. How about: The Apple as in "Do you like apples?" "How do you like these apples".

Sure is, amazing what a little research digs up! Now did your company really say this?

 

“… a new name has been chosen to set us apart and differentiate this company from the previous one: we are now Climb X. Same sales team. Same distributors. Same production facility. Same product development staff. The same award-winning products.”

 

Found that here:

Vikki Weldon blog

 

She seems to suggest you were implying that you were a reincarnated Mad Rock.

 

So I'd be interested to hear your take on this here on CC.com, care to reply?

haha, I came up with the Rad Moc name in the Madrock/rc.com naming contest 5-6 years ago.

 

Yep, the LA attorneys are at your door right now with a cease and desist letter. D'oh!

Anyone else gone over ClimbX's website? ALL of their gear looks to be Mad Rock product that they've re-stamped with ClimbX. Sketchy operation if you ask me.

 

EDIT: Gone through the whole site now. The only thing I can find on their entire site that is not a direct copy of Mad Rock design, pattern, etc. They didn't even bother changing the name for the Galaxy Harness they stole from Mad Rock.

Is their incredibly bulky looking Gold Locking Carabiner. These fuckers aren't even a well run scam.
