If you are the go big homewaller, keep on reading because the XXL Golfus Sloper Model #2 delivers in a big way.
The height of this hold is around the size of a basketball, while it is also three inches wider. This hold also sticks off the wall by six inches. It's big for a home wall, but we have had great success with it on 20-degrees. At 45-degrees, this is a V10 hold.
With that size, there is ample room for both hands. This is assuming you are strong enough to stick it with both hands. If you are the "Challenge Accepted!" kind of climber, expect V2 on vertical and V2/4 on a 20-degree overhanging wall. And that's just grabbing on to it. Any move beyond static will jack up the grade very quickly. You are looking at V6 to V10 in steep terrain.
What you are grabbing on to is a 30-degree sloper and a 45-degree sloper. The Golfus dimples are in these sections, which adds a little bit of help for you to stay on. You'll find that your hand size will engage the dimples one way and a larger hand another way: lots and lots of variety and variations.
There is also a third sloper location. It is the traditional smooth sloper section. This sloper is V4 on a vertical wall.
Setting this hold so that it looks like a raindrop, pointy side up and wide side down, is the easiest orientation when moving from right to left across the hold. It is harder to move from left to right across the hold. It is the kind of sloper that keeps you guessing and offers a lot of variations. We recommend putting XXL Golfus Sloper Vertical Wall #1 on your wall first. After that, if you want variety, get this listing which is Model #2.
