XXL Granite Sloper #2 Steep-Wall (Screw-On)

V1 incut sloper on vertical walls. V2/3 on 25-degree walls. V5+ on 45-degree walls.


If you envision the long granite rails that classic granite boulders have, the Granite Sloper #2 is as close to the real thing as it gets. The incut has a concave curvature like the granite boulders in Little Cottonwood Canyon, Utah, which, as the wall it is set on gets steeper, forces you to crimp on the lip. The far left and right of the main lip lets you thumb catch on the side; however, if you want no place to hide and want to up your granite game, gripping the lip in the middle is a test for the brave. Setting this hold so that you have to grip it with both hands is one of our favorite ways to set with it. 

On lower angled walls, your hand gets deeper into the hold where your fingers can "hang" on the lip. Otherwise, the above description applies only in a much easier way. 

We have added detailed cracks along the lip and around the sides so you can "feel" how you want to dig into it. This is a very common practice when climbing on granite outdoors. 

This hold will yield V5+ on a 45-degree wall. It will not yield a hold feeling less than V5. 

On a 25-degree overhanging wall, the easiest you can get from this hold is V3 though a very cool V3 feeling hold. Setting the hold with the incut horizontal to the ground, you will find a 3/4" to 1" deep granite texture lip with no incut.
