"When setting out to create my first ever range of holds, I had one central idea in mind; to make a range that could be used to set fun, creative problems for climbers of all abilities.
Everything has been designed with the climber in mind. All the edges are rounded and comfortable so they feel good in your hands and the texture of each hold feels nice on your skin.
The simple geometric shapes lend themselves to all styles of climbing from fundamental climbing movements, right up to elite level climbs of all styles. I really wanted the holds to work on lots of different styles.
Also, some of the holds across the range interconnect to generate endless possibilities of hold configurations. I am so excited to see what routesetters do with these holds and hopefully, climbers will get as much fun climbing on these holds as I had creating them!"
"I am so excited to share the latest set of holds from my range with EP Climbing. The vision for the latest set is that a route setter could create an entire circuit with these holds alongside the previous range which is why I was really busy creating lots of new shapes to add to the collection!
Continuing the principles from the previous set, these holds are designed to interconnect with each other so setters can create stoppers or improve holds by pairing them together increases the number of possibilities for the setter. It was so good seeing what setters produced with the last range and I am looking forward to what they come up with using this set in 2021!"
