The first thing to notice when climbing on this set is that there is room for both hands on all the holds.
Because of their width, these edges are excellent for introducing matching hands on a single hold. The incuts are 4" to 6" wide, with enough room for eight fingers.
Once we get into 25-degree overhanging walls, the incuts of 10 to 45 degrees deliver a V4/5 feeling hold. The rounded lip of the hold continues flowing towards the back of the hold, creating a comfortable rounded edge.
On a 45-degree wall, most of the set is down-sloping which cranks their difficulty to V5 at the minimum grade you'll get out of them. As soon as moves are set dynamically, they feel more in the V6 range and could easily yield V8.
5 Wide Basic Edges Set #1 is more incut than 5 Wide Basic Edges Set #2.
