It’s one of the most common questions we get asked. What does Jumar mean? How did you get the name?
A jumar is something you’ve probably seen before, but you just didn’t know what it was called. It’s a piece of mountaineering equipment used for ascending a rope while climbing.
The word ‘jumar’ has also spawned its own verb – and mountaineers and climbers are often described as ‘jumaring’ when they’re using one of these devices.
When we were choosing the name for the company, we wanted something intriguing – and so we chose Jumar. We’d like to think that it was chosen because it reflected our clients’ ability to move onwards and upwards – but actually, one of our Directors came across the term in a climbing magazine, and we just thought it was a great name. And it’s one we’ve all grown very fond of since.
