    Too Small

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Great texture and nice colors! But the holds are very small and can barely grip. Looks nice, but most of them were useless.

    Great for Kids

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I bought this set to help my nephew build a rock climbing wall up to his fort. The size is perfect for him and what we are using the holds for. The are a lot more chalky and seem to be a different material than pictured.

    Less isn't always more...

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I was so pumped for these, perhaps I had unrealistic expectations? They are much smaller than I pictured them being and not very tough. You can break them easily and I don't think they're going to work for the small climbing wall that I am making in my garage. I would strongly encourage against you buying these, unless you're using them for incredibly small climbers. Save your money and buy a different pack or set.

    Nice Variety

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Cool mix of colors and shapes, was surprised at the variety of holds. The ability to use a majority of them as hand holds was nice. And as a bonus they arrived without any broken ones!

    I'm buying another!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I'm buying my 3rd set of these little guys, they are great for vertical and slightly overhanging walls as crimps, and feet at any angle.
    Be careful when screwing them into your wall as over screwing it can break them.

    Jibs

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Some small jibs. They don't like to be moved around too much as they are brittle and will crack over time. Put them at the bottom of your woody and leave them there.

    Too Small

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Good quality and price but they are very very SMALL. Hard to grip and some pieces are not even worth installing.

    Fantastic pack

      There is a nice variety of little holds in here. I think they are mostly designed as foot chips and tiny crimps so don't expect big hand holds. If you're looking for a bunch of little chips and crimps for a great price then this is for you

      Smaller than I thought.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Great price for 40 holds, but they were a little smaller than expected. I'd say 15 were barely OK for my teenage girls to use as hand holds. I guess they'll just have to learn quicker. Most of them we set up between t-nut holes to help fill foot hold voids and that has worked out quite well. I did put a few right next to jug hand holds so there was an option if we want to test our skills a bit. No problems with the quality. Did not crack any during installation. Also if you just want your wall to look really cool and full of holds this is a great way to go:)

      Small and shallow grips

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I attached these to a big tree. They are small and the grip parts are very shallow so I won't put them up high. Suitable for angled climbs perhaps but not for vertical. I don't feel safe to send the kids up to a higher level with these, they don't have enough grip/hold.

      Works Great on Playset (too)

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Following the suggestion of another reviewer, I predrilled all of the holes (mounting on pressure treated lumber as part of a playset) then used electric drill with torque set fairly low so I wouldn't bust any of them. Took a while to complete installing all of them, but worked perfectly. The holds are quite a bit smaller than the holds sold for a swingset, but at this price I was able to put a LOT more holds on the playset. My 3 year was able to climb instantly.

      You've got some SERIOUSLY lucky 'kids' !!!

      Holds for Various Applications/Abilities

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I have a small training area that I set up and this pack offers plenty of variety to duplicate entire projects or cruxes so I can train at home. Right now I have it set up for Gastons, pockets and smaller pinches. This pack has quite a nice selection though there are several holds that I can only use as footholds. Having ample screws included for this price, well that is one of the reasons I've bought so many Metolius products. I would like to repeat the advice I've seen in other reviews, there are a couple of holds that are just too fragile to hold up when attached with an impact driver. I shattered the thinner parts of two holds, so use caution. This should be seen as a simple warning to be careful, not something to dissuade someone looking to put together a training/climbing wall. This is a good pack for someone looking to improve their contact strength and climbing technique regardless of climbing level, because of the variety of sizes and shapes of the holds.

      What is the average dimensions for most...

      What is the average dimensions for most of these? From the picture it is hard to tell if they are small holds or not. I read one review saying that if your wall is sloped you may get mostly foot holds. But are they good for foot holds if you have a high angle wall? I am in the planning process to build a climbing wall in my attic and was not sure if I should even bother getting these.

      These holds are really small. to put it in perspective those holes you see in the holds are just big enough to sit your standard drywall screw through. I would bother getting these because if you are only climbing on jugs then your footwork is going to be shot, get some footchips so you can get some practice some technical foot placement.

      average dimension is about 2.5" x 1.5" average depth is maybe a half pad to 3/4 pad. some are a full pad crimp. i had maybe 10 incut crimps.

      good addition

        you ever been setting and thought "damn, i wish there was a bolt hole right here!"? that's why we have screw on holds. the pack has a great assortment of hand holds and foot holds. certainly no roof jugs though. and if all you got is a 45 wall, you'll probably mostly get feet out of this. it's easy enough to over torque these and split 'em (especially with an impact driver), so be careful.

        Is it hard enough for ya?

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I bought these for our local climbing gym in Kyrgyzstan. Up until that time, they had never had holds that small. We immediately had diabolical crimper routes all over the place. Don't buy these if you are looking for massive jugs. These are for the tougher guys (and gals).

        Do you need to buy T-nuts or screws with...

        Do you need to buy T-nuts or screws with this or does the package come with them?

        Best Answer

        comes with everything you need except plywood.

        Crimpers

        Crimpers

        Nice Crimpers, many similars

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I like the holds a lot. They are great for setting sexy crimper routes. The only issue I have is that a lot of them are pretty much the same hold over and over. I was hoping for more variety in the actual hold design, especially among the blue and yellow colored holds. I have 5 yellow holds that are exactly the same thing. I have 7 blue holds that are very very similar to each other.

        Other than that the pack really is a lot of holds for the money. I bought the Metolious 60 pack (it included a lot of jugs and bigger holds) for $120 so it was nice getting 40 more hold for only $35.

        Hi there! Do you have the dimensions of...

        Hi there! Do you have the dimensions of these individual holds? 'bout how many inches tall and wide are they? Thanks!

        They are pretty small. like 2x2 inches. Great for crimpers of foot holds.

        Bouldering Pit

          We are turning a room in our house into a bouldering pit, and these just add to the fun. They are really, really small, but will be great for crimping, or for foot holds. pictures to come soon on this project!
