The 10 Pack Joes Pockets are climbing holds that have dishes for your fingers to lay in. They are all one and a half to two finger pads deep with great thumb catches. Thumb catches are a plus because it makes it easier to grab on to the hold as the angle of your walls gets steeper.
They are not jugs for steep wall climbing but are relatively easy on vertical walls. If looking at these for a vertical wall, expect V2, which is a grade too hard for the beginner child climber.
These climbing holds feel like pocketed sandstone with undulations on the insides of the holds. On really steep walls, seven of the set offer a decent-sized grip that ends up feeling like a pinch. When spaced closely together, they will yield V4 (intermediate to an advanced level climber) on steeper walls.
