XXL Granite Feature #6 (Sloper/Crimp)

Thumb-scum sloper with the bonus of a crimp rail!


This three-finger pads deep sloper is a must-have for your home wall.  The sloper rounds from the face of the hold to the back with a slight incut. This makes for a great intro sloper for beginners on vertical walls feeling in the V1/2 range. You can expect V3/4 on a 25-degree overhanging wall and V8+ on a 45-degree wall. You get multiple locations to thumb scum on the opposite side of the sloper where no locations are perfect sweet spots. This design climbs rock-like, teaching you to find your "just right" way to grip the hold. 

The bonus on this hold is the 1/4" to 3/4" deep crimp rail that runs across the face of the hold. You can set V2 crimp problems on vertical walls and on anything steeper, rotating the hold can get you a deep variety of more difficult grades. 

  • SIZE: 11" wide x 4-7/8" tall x 3-1/8" standing off the wall. 
  • A beginner ledge on vertical feeling V1/2.
  • An intermediate ledge on 25-degree overhanging walls feeling V3/4.
  • Advanced hold in steep terrain feeling V8+ on 45-degree walls and steeper. 
  • TEXTURE: Rock-like granite texture.
