Yep, they are a disgrace. Climb X is a knock off of Mad Rock. The owner of Climb X used to work for Mad Rock. While working there he committed espionage and stole a company computer containing sensitive product development information. He then used his existing knowledge and the data on that computer to completely copy Mad Rock's entire product line. Mad Rock sued Climb X and of course got a settlement. Or at least that is what they say. The only thing that is truly clear is that the owner of Climb X is a very shady and dishonest person. Every person I know that knows the owner of Climb X has had nothing but bad things to say. Dont buy product from Climb X, you are supporting a very shady company.

Dude, that's like saying the CIA ripped off the KGB.
Whatever, the story about the whole ordeal with Joe is all over the net, you can read it and decide for yourself. But I a pretty sure if you owned a manufacturer and one day you logged into your computer to find an ex-employee copied your entire product line, including items that were patented, you would be pretty irate.

So I am advising people not to buy from Climb X because the owner is an a criminal and from what I heard, just a bad person all around. Any dumb ass can copy another's product, that does not require any innovation or intelligence; and scam artists and copycats should not be rewarded for their criminal work.

I am just waiting for Guangzhou to storm in here and tell me how I have it all wrong and Joe is actually a great guy: he attends his kid's PTA meetings, donates his time at the Salvation Army, and all that jazz. I think they are best friends or something - whatever. All I see is a company that opened their doors with a 100% copied ripoff product line. Climb X dident even bother to attempt to modify the ripoff designs in the slightest way, everything was a straight-out copy.
