Who We Are

world's most advanced climbing wall manufacturer

Manufacturing innovative and industry-leading climbing walls in Bend, OR since 1988.

Inspired by the hometown crag, Smith Rock State Park, EP USA was established through a partnership with EP France in 1988 with a mission to make world-class climbing accessible to everyone. Since our first artificial climbing walls rolled out over 30 years ago, EP has built more than 7,200 climbing walls and boulders worldwide, using state-of-the-art technology and design.

Working with EP means working with the most reliable partner in the industry. You will be working hand-in-hand with an expert team of craftsmen and climbers who also happen to be industry-leading consultants, designers, engineers and project managers, who provide custom products with high quality service. EP designs and manufactures the most innovative and advanced climbing walls that evolve with the sport of climbing.

From sparking the first sport climbing revolution with our Freeform walls, to making history as the official supplier of climbing walls at the Tokyo Olympics in 2021, EP brings climbing to everyone from beginners to professional athletes.

EP is a proud partner and supplier to the International Federation of Sport Climbing, (IFSC), and USA Climbing.
