XXL Granite Feature #5 (Edge/Crimp/Pinch)

A lot like Tiger Tail in Little Cottonwood Canyon, Utah.


Granite Feature #5 is 12-3/4" inches wide and offers two different edges. The main edge is 1-1/4" to 1-5/8" deep with 15 to 20-degree incuts. This means when you set with this hold on a 20-degree overhanging wall, the edge will be horizontal to the ground feeling in the V5 difficulty range. 

The small crimp at the base of the hold is 1/4" to 1/2" deep, barely incut rounded crimp. This is a V2 feeling crimp on vertical walls and V6/7 on 25-degree overhanging walls. 

For the pinch, this grip happens when you orient the hold vertically. This 4" wide pinch resembles holds found on Little Cottonwood's Tiger Stripe boulder. With your fingers on the big side of the hold, the smaller crimp side offers thumb scums rather than traditional thumb catches. 

This hold feels very realistic compared to outdoor granite boulders and offers a ton of versatility to your home wall. 

  • SIZE: 12-3/4" wide x 4-3/8" tall x 1-5/8" standing off the wall. 
  • A beginner ledge on vertical feeling V1
  • An intermediate ledge on 25-degree overhanging walls feeling V4/5
  • Advanced hold in steep terrain feeling V8+ on 45-degree walls and steeper. 
  • TEXTURE: Rock-like granite texture.
