Great starter for a home wall
Got these as a "starter set" for my home bouldering wall (8ft wide, 14ft high). Provide a great base, especially for setting routes that kids can climb as well without climbing shoes. If there's one downside is that the holds are very "basic" (which it does state) and I've found myself ordering more specialized holds after getting this one to make my routes more interesting. With this set, you can get good, solid V0-V1 routes, and very crimpy V3-V4 style routes but not a lot in between.

I have to say that for a home wall, I'm very pleasantly surprised at the quality and texture of these holds. I feel I've climbed at climbing gyms where the holds there feel worse than these.

Great set to start out with but you might want to add a few carefully selected packs of other types of holds to make your wall more interesting.

Great starter pack
Bought this for my home wall, which is roughly at a 30 degree angle. Good quality holds, but note that there is large proportion of jugs so this is more of a base pack to start with before adding more complex/specific holds. For now, I'm setting more dynamic problems with these or using some footholds as pinches/crimps to get anything more than a V2 or so. But for the price, this set is great value!
