Nicros, Inc. – The Evolution of Climbing

Our Logo

Do you see the Letter N?
Do you see the arrows pointing up and pointing down?
Do you see matching or opposing handholds?

What is the story behind our logo?

The ups, the downs.
The highs, the lows.
The ascent, the rappel.
Balance, power.
Holding on, letting go.
The yin, the yang.
Climbing, like life, is full of opposites.
In training you must tear muscles down
before you can build them up.
In climbing there is not an ascent without a descent.
In life you must experience the lows to appreciate the highs.
At NICROS, we not only understand this, but revel in it.
Our logo symbolizes this constant interplay.
Life, like climbing, is full of vastly different experiences.
Enjoy them all.
