About Us

Breadhouse Climbing is a young startup that was born in Montréal, Canada in Spring 2020. The co-founders and friends are engineering students with complementary passions that led to this entrepreneurial adventure. They merged their expertise in all things climbing and machining to enable the design of Breadhouse's first product: The Pretzel.
The name Breadhouse Climbing comes from the climbing club in their living room (read: home bouldering wall) and the infinite supply of bread that their roommate is constantly making. Combining the two was essential, and who doesn’t like bread?
Eli Dannenbaum, Co-founder

Eli is a mechanical engineering student who is constantly climbing anything he can get his hands on. Since gyms have been closed he has built five homemade climbing walls for himself and friends, and has designed many more. He started prototyping the first pretzel design by hand, and has since created hangboards for Breadhouse and others.

Benjamin St-Pierre, Co-founder

If Ben isn't CADing, 3D printing or machining his next project he's probably outside - hiking or climbing. Since buying his first CNC, a day hasn't passed without machining a board or improving the router in some way.
