About Us

Breadhouse Climbing is a young startup that was born in Montréal, Canada in Spring 2020. The co-founders, Eli and Ben, are friends and engineering students with complementary passions that led to this entrepreneurial adventure. Our merged expertise in all things climbing and manufacturing led to the release of Breadhouse's first product: The Pretzel Hangboard. 
The name Breadhouse Climbing comes from the pre-pandemic climbing club on Eli's living room homewall, and the infinite supply of exquisite bread that his roommate was constantly making. Combining the two was essential, and after all, who doesn’t like bread?
Eli Dannenbaum, Co-founder

Eli is a mechanical engineering student and tree planter who is constantly climbing anything he comes across, from trees, to rock to buildings. As a student, his goal of making affordable home climbing walls (now over 16 unique designs) and training gear has blossomed through Breadhouse. He has designed hangboards for Breadhouse and other companies, and is always looking for new ways to hang on things.

Benjamin St-Pierre, Co-founder

Ben is an aerospace engineering student with a love of robotics. If Ben isn't CADing, 3D printing or machining his next project he's probably outside - hiking or climbing. Since buying his first CNC mill, a day hasn't passed without machining a board or improving the router in some way. His love of CNC's has helped optimize Breadhouse's manufacturing processes.
