5 Large Steep Wall Granite Pinches (Screw-on)

Pinches for the beginner to the advanced climber, depending on how steep your wall is.


A variety of incuts and thumb catches is the theme of this pinch set. Many of the pinches feel like jugs on vertical walls when oriented horizontally. The feel is V1- on vertical walls and V3/5+ on 45-degree walls. 

What is unique about this set is that most of the grips have room for most of your fingers, and the thumb catch is where the pinching action comes into play. This becomes more obvious the steeper the wall they are route set on. You can expect 1" wide to 2-1/2" wide pinches in this set. 

This set climbs like natural rock, where the granite texture challenges you to find a comfortable spot.
