Irresistible holds that will make you wish you reached for something else. Slab to 25 degrees, they are fun slopers and challenging pinches. At 30-50 degrees, they become the crux of the climb. The 2nd to largest width is so much fun and easily matched on. Agree with other review that the largest pyramid shaped hold is ridiculously challenging, but love that it keeps you trying! So close to sticking at 30 degrees. They all have sweet spots that never seem that sweet when in the moment. These are the holds that will make any climber mindful of body position, tension, and core. Loving the Smooth Series!
As a new climber I bought these to get some bigger holds on the home wall. The largest is better as a foothold for me until my grip strength improves. The other 3 are large enough for both hands or make great foot holds to rest on. Looking forward to trying more holds in this series
This set has nice hand width variety, but are more slopey than I expected for a 35 degree home wall. The fattest pinch is almost impossible to hold at 35 without screw-ons, but makes a fantastic and challenging foot hold. The other 3 holds are great for long one-handed grabs but are hard to match. I would say they are at the v7+ range at 35 degrees so anything steeper would be even harder. Fun holds. I would buy them again.
These have made quarantine less boring and are a fun challenge.
