Home / About Us

Our Denver based team developed the Rocky Talkie because of all the dangerous miscommunications that we were witnessing. As we began testing and refining prototypes, the utility of the system became increasingly clear. With reliable communication, we found we could reduce our risk doing the activities we loved, feel more comfortable pushing our own limits, and have more fun in the process.

 
Rock climbing is our passion. We initially designed the radio for on-wall communication and tested it on the big walls of Yosemite and El Potrero Chico in Mexico. As we refined the system, we tested it in the other wide-range of activities that we pursue and optimized it to excel in cold weather. Be it skiing, ice-climbing, hiking Colorado 14ers, packrafting & flyfishing in the Montana wilderness, or cragging with a large group around the Red River Gorge - we hope you enjoy Rocky Talkies as much as we have!
