10 Dripstone Flat Crimps #2 (Screw-On)

Flat edges.


If you can grab onto small holds, a screw-on crimp is a budget-friendly choice. 

This set offers about 3/4" of flat to slightly incut edges. That depth of hold means they are an introduction to crimping on vertical walls. It also means Crimptown in steep terrain. 

As a handhold on a vertical wall, you are in the V2 range. V2 is hard for the beginner. However, the beginner can use them as footholds. 

Where this set shines is in steep terrain. You will get a V3 crimp on a 20-degree overhanging wall and a V9 on a 45-degree overhanging wall. 

The "legs" on these shapes add more variety, such as grabbing a thumb-catch here and there. In steep terrain, openhanded crimping is a good grip position on them. 

The Dripstone design style is rock-like, which means a grippier texture than more simple design styles.

  • SIZE: On average, measures 3-3/8" wide x 1-3/4" tall x 7/8" standing off the wall. 
  • V2 on vertical walls. 
  • V4 on 20-degree walls. 
  • V9 on 45-degree walls. 
  • Texture: The Dripstone texture is skin-friendly that feels like natural rock.
