For home climbing walls, space is at a premium. Smaller walls often lack XXL shapes, but we love them, right? We all do!
This XXL sloper is just the right size as it has room for both holds yet doesn't take up a lot of wall space. It does stand off the wall by 5" inches, so it is best to set this higher up on your wall. Setting with this hold low on your wall creates a protrusion that you can clip your elbow. So, this sloper is big enough to be fantastic yet small enough for your home wall.
This sloper offers just a little bit more than the standard smooth-shaped designs on the market. However, the divots are what you climb on, so whether you have giant man-hands or small lady-like hands, a design like this evens the playing field.
This sloper is an excellent choice for the beginner for their vertical wall. It is large enough to wrap most, if not all, of your hands at the same time. However, the Golfus divots do add a little more purchase.
In overhanging terrain, this sloper is spicy. Only the advanced climber will be able to move off of this hold. Since the hold is already sloping on a vertical wall, it becomes V6 on slightly overhanging terrain and V8 on a 45-degree wall.
