I bought these for a casual climbing wall that leads to the sleeping loft in my bedroom - my girlfriends idea. Chose these so that they could be ascended and descended barefoot. Worked out well.
I used my chunks (the light blue set in the photo) to make a continuous route with the few finishing holds from a different set. The route starts on an 80o wall that traverses to a 75o wall before finishing up a 45o kickout (right to left in the picture). The chunks require delicate handwork where your grip changes substantially between how your left and right hands will use the holds. The multiple angles on each hold create a wide variety of pinches and sloper shelfs. The chunks can be rotated to increase or decrease the respective difficulty of the grip allowing you to set a route and then making it progressively more difficult with minor tweaking as you get it dialed. The holds are pleasant to use and do not tweak your fingers allowing you to work a route without fear of tweaking something. Definitely the chunks are one of my favorite holds on my near vertical wall.
Set on a mostly vertical wall with a ‘cave’ feature. Easy to tweak the character by rotation and placement. These are pleasant to grab and to look at, they make the most challenging and longest route at home thanks to good amount of holds in the set.
MEET THE CHUNKS FAMILY
Not your simple block set, these sloping sidewalls make it hard to hang on and are wide enough to for thumb catches in specific areas.
The Chunks Family set looks positive but can be deceivingly difficult on steeper angles.
The Chunks Family takes simple to a new level, forcing powerful movements and subtle body positions.
