Smooth, round and pure fun. These comfortable shapes work great on any angle. They excel on steep terrain for V3+ climbers offering slopers, rounded jugs, incuts and knobs. As an entry level/beginner climber on less steep walls, you should have these on your wall. Get a taste of what "holding" on to a hold feels like rather than just pulling on all positive holds.

Rounded design Hours of tendon friendly training
Sandstone texture Offers you a longer contact time to complete harder moves
Cobble design forces forearm and pinch strength training
Open handed training when you get tired your hand opens up...so train open handed to squeeze out a few more moves on your next project
When training on holds that force you to use more of the palm of your hand such as cobbles and slopers, it is usually best to keep the hold above your shoulder height before committing to the next move. The farther above your head that the hold is, the easier it will be to hold on to it because you have more of your "skin" or "palm" on the hold creating a larger surface area of contact on the hold. The closer the hold gets to your shoulder or below, your wrist rotates out decreasing the amount of "skin" on the hold.
