Love Letters direct from Climb On!
Thank you! I continue to appreciate your products. I am a drummer/climber and have been in the Yosemite area for about 18 years. Both activities can be hard on fingers so thanks for keeping it pure.

Thank you, dears! I am an artist and a gardener; my hands really take a beating from the dirt and the paint and the everything; Climb On! is the best stuff around
- G. Griffin, Birmingham, Alabama
Climb On! Creme helps me when I have gobies all over my hands from the crack climbing in Yosemite. Is spreads on easily and helps the gobies and allows much more climbing time! Always a good thing!

"I have used Chap Stick for years and had to use it 6-7 times a day. And my lips were still dry. I now use Lip Lube morning and night and no more dry lips."

My daughter, Judy, found Climb On! last year and it so saved my bleeding fingers. I moved to Michigan a year ago and could not understand why my fingers were cracking to the point that they were bleeding. After using Climb On! my fingers werenﾒt cracking anymore in just a few days. Your product is really a miracle. Judy has also shared her discovery with the nurses she works with and everyone is totally pleased. THANK YOU It is early but my hands are starting to become extremely dry. I had some left from last year but to make sure I placed the enclosed order. Again, THANK YOU! - M. Garcia, Michigan
I can't say enough great things about the Climb On! SPF 30 Mineral Sunscreen....it rocks. It is almost too good to be true. What I mean is that my skin actually looks and feels better with the Sunscreen on than the regular Climb On! Creme. I have been using the SPF 30 Mineral Sunscreen on all my long rides (4 hours) and have had zero sunburned skin.

I was having trouble with my face for the last year and a half to the point that I was using tetracycline daily (for acne) and a prescription gel for rosacea. I have now used the Bast Face Wash, Tonic, and Serum for about two weeks. I love them. I have stopped the prescription gel and antibiotics. And my face is great.
Thanks so much,
- K. Hill, Austin, Texas
I especially love your Bast Face Wash. I think it contains a secret ingredient--it is so refreshing and enlivening to use. Have you figured out a way to add peace and joy to the active ingredients? Because, when I get into the shower in the morning, I find that if my mind is zooming into the day (or, on the other hand, if I'm not quite feeling in my body yet), when I wash with Face Wash (I use it all over my body, not just on my face), I am brought into the Present Moment, and all is well! Thank you for your wonderful products and the consciousness that goes into formulating and marketing them. In a world of fast food, they could be likened to a skillfully presented, deliciously satisfying meal prepared just for one unique individual by a marvelous and experienced chef.
With sincere gratitude,
- Jessica Bishea, Houston, Texas
I said I'd let you know what I thought of the Bast products I bought the other evening at Clifford's. It may sound like a cliché, but I mean it truly when I say I could tell the difference in my skin almost immediately. I really like everything I bought. Just wanted to let you know that I am very pleased!

Not sure if you get many people praising you....but I am.
I have used your climb on bars for a while, and often thought it helps my hands to heal after a tough session at the climbing wall. Friends have also said it has helped cuts to heal.
But, on Sunday I protected an innocent log from a nasty sharp axe, with my left index finger. The cut went to the bone and required stitches at the local A&E. This is bad enough, but made worse by the fact this coming weekend is a trip to the Roaches in the Peak District for some grit climbing. I have been looking forward to this trip since October, and to get a finger injury at this point is incredibly bad luck.
Yesterday my finger was too tender to touch, and I though about cancelling my place on the trip. Out of desperation I removed my finger dressing, caked the cut in "climb on" and wrapped it back up. This morning, no word of a lie, I can now squeeze the finger firmly with little\no discomfort! It now feels like a little scratch!
Thank you guys! I will be singing your praises from rooftops and climbing forums alike.

I want to thank you for inventing a product that has really worked for me. I have had a problem with painful splitting and cracking of my hands. Every fall and all winter long I suffered from open splits on my fingertips. I have gone to doctors and used what they prescribed. Still every fall the splits would begin and then last until late spring. Having open splits make doing anything and everything painful. Often the splits would bleed and even wearing band aids all the time didn't help much. I was in constant pain. This fall I saw in the Women's Sports and Fitness Magazine a reference to Climb On!® - a product for rock climber, etc. that helped heal and keep hands healthy. I figure I didn't have anything to lose so I called the number and ordered. My fingertips were already split and quite painful when my first can of Climb On!® arrived. I used it immediately -twice a day and within two days the splits were gone and I haven't felt this healthy or pain free for a long time. It is like a miracle for me. I have suffered for 30 years with split fingertips every winter. Your product is the first (and I have tried everything out there from Eucerine to Bag Balm to Badger Healing Balm to every hand cream in the drugstore) and only to keep me pain free and healed. Thank you so much and please don't ever stop making Climb On!®

I'm a vascular surgeon in MI. My shoes (unfortunately) go on at 6 am and don't come off many times till 9 pm so my feet end up in a moist environment all day. One heel gets deep painful cracks due to that routine. I found you guys about 5 or 6 years ago and use your bar every morning before my sock goes on. Long as I stick to that routine, no cracks/no pain. If I drop off for 3 or 4 days in a row I pay the price. Great stuff. I tell my patients with similar problems your website address.

My 6 year old daughter, Louisa, is in her third season of a rash around her mouth. The first year, it wasn't so bad. Last year, it was nasty. I tried all kinds of cremes, cortisone, etc. and nothing helped much. (Interestingly, being in the sun seems to help -- it disappeared during a week in St. Thomas in March.) I had her tested for food allergies -- none. The allergist put her on Benedryl at night. Anyway, in June, we went to Yosemite and took a rock climbing lesson. As I am always on the lookout for another, preferably natural, skin product to try, I bought a Climb On Bar at the gift shop. It is the absolute best product for her rash that I have found. When the rash came back this year after taking the summer off, The Bar, combined with a 500 mg chewable Vitamin C each day cleared the rash. Thank you so much for this great product. I just bought a bunch to give away at Christmas.

Just a note to say thanks. Someone referred me to your product and I picked up a tin on a recent climbing trip to Boulder, CO. After three days of climbing, my hands usually look (and feel) like the stones they've been caressing. But now after daily use, my wife is not afraid to hold hands with me. I'm sold on Climb On!® and so is my climbing partner (and my wife... that's two different peeps!)

I've been using the Climb On Bar for years and have turned a large number of people on to it. I work in a lab and we now have a large bar in the lab (and now all of my co-workers also use it). I am also a sheep farmer and there is a bar in our bathroom and bedroom, one in my hold all that goes everywhere with me and I keep one in my pack on a permanent basis just so I don't find myself on a mountain (summer or winter) without it. But the place in Red Deer, Alberta that used to carry it has discontinued it. I've seen it from time to time in Banff but always the little bars, and the larger ones (was disappointed to see on the site that you are discontinuing this size) are more economic! I do go to Edmonton from time to time and if I knew there was a place that carried your products, I would make an effort to get there.

Good Day ! I am from Saskatchewan, Canada and wanted to RAVE about your Climb On!® Cream. My son, 5yrs old, had Molluscum Contagiosum--these little wart looking spots all over his body. Most commonly in the armpit area. They were scary looking and very contagious. I had some of your cream around and thought that I would try it ( as I've tried using everything else other than Climb On!®) after applying it in the AM and the PM we noticed they started fading and NOT spreading. This was amazing to me. My daughter also had them this past summer but hers were not as bad and seemed to go away on their own. I visited a friend on New Years and noticed her 3 yr old had the same spots as my son. I asked her what they were and she told me the same thing. That it was a virus and that the doctor said it will go away on its own in time. I told her about your cream and she said that she heard of it as she uses the 'Bar' for dry skin and eczema. I mentioned what I tried on my son and she is getting some. So that's my story to you! Hope it inspired you.

I used some of your Climb On!® Crème when I was mountaineering in Kyrghyzstan last year - awesome stuff!! It cured chapped hands, lips and noses - the problem is I can't find any here in the UK. Can you give me some ideas where I can get my (sore) hands on some?

Well, I've been climbing almost every weekend now in Bishop the past few months on the super coarse granite, and the only thing that has saved my skin is Climb On ! Its much better then the hand lotion I had been using. It feels great on my skin, smells great, those flappers and raw pads seem to heal overnight! I just picked up the super 2.8 oz can and I can't keep away from using it, its like crack for my hands ! So, yah, you got great stuff, can I have some free cans now :)

Hello, My name is Chris Lemons I work for Wachovia Bank in Roanoke Virginia. Being an avid climber for years, I swear by your products but this e-mail is a little different. We are currently sponsoring soldiers that are stationed in Iraq and they are in need of many things what I was wondering is if you would be willing to donate a box of your Lip Lube. Things like this are crucial to reacting to a desert environment and companies like Blistex, Chapstik, etc. just don't cut it. I know how much I cherish and use Climb On!® and I know that the ingredients would be perfect for the arid desert. Could you please help us out? We would be forever grateful for your help.
Thanks so Much,
- Chris Lemons Roanoke, Virginia
I am a skydiver, and skin/lip care products are a must have for the skydiving community. Your lip balm is the best and longest lasting I have ever used, the Climb-On Bar heals my dry cracked hands (from packing parachutes) like nothing I have ever used, and the Climb On Crème heals rough knees & elbows.
