Handmade Unique Holds
OUT OF STOCK FOR A WEEK TO PRIORITISE THE FINGERBOARDS
Each one of these wooden holds is a one off. They are designed for feet follow boards primarily where the user puts their feet on the hold as well as their hands.
The advantages of feet follow climbing are that it is often more realistic for hard steep bouldering, where the climber has to deal with good feet in awkward places. If combined with poor footholds at the base of the board (or throughout if you like) this is a fantastic way to develop a varied strong core and powerful set of shoulders.
We have always been a fan of wood holds retaining a grippy rather than slick feel so we step down and then up with our sanding grades to leave a really nice skin friendly bite on the holds, this helps avoid dry firing and ligament straining over gripping that can occur with holds sanded with >120grad sandpaper.
Wooden holds excel in both warm and cold temperatures. If there is a period when you really need to train hard but don't want to then it is often on hot summer days. Wooden holds and training equipment really help on these occasions and make the difference once those cooler autumn days finally set in.
The holds are handmade in Cumbria, UK from sustainable electricity (micro hydro)
We are also working with UK tree planting schemes to offset the wood use.
PLEASE leave a comment in the comments/notes section when you order if you'd like the holds tailored to a grade/ board angle or if there are any particular hold biases you'd prefer.
