New Holds – Capital Climbing!

In packaging.

In packaging. Poured/shipped by Element.

Hold shaper Chris Neal sent us some new holds to check out from his new company Capital Climbing. Here are some pictures of the holds, and where to find ‘em on the walls to check ‘em out. We’ll report back with a more thorough review (and the names of the sets) in the near future.

Pink Font Slopers. You can find one on the Beach and the other four on a cool outward-facing problem just left of the River arete.

Comfortable rounded edges.

The Clasts. Comfortable rounded edges. Another angle below:

You can find these on the River, on a yellow problem mid-right river, a pink 4 by the river arete, and on a dark green 5- that runs across the left river.

Awesome!

Awesome feature!

Another shot of it with a wrench for size.

The feature is on the River as well, just right of the arete about head-height on the pink problem that also has two of the green edges on it.

First impressions are very positive. The texture of the holds is great, the shapes are comfortable and professional, and they are poured by Element, which we’ve had good luck with so far. The edges are a bit softer than an Aragon hold, but nothing we’re concerned about. All in all an impressive offering from a brand-new company.

Check out the holds and let us know what you think!
