I ordered these holds when they were on sale, but even at full price these holds are worth it! I have been climbing for 10 years at a 5.14 level and own close to 700 holds from 17 different climbing hold manufactures and these holds are always going to be on my wall! The texture is not as rough as some of the other Metolius holds I have but that is one of the reasons these slopes are great. On steeper angles these holds will work your open hand strength while on a flat wall can be orientated to work your foot work. Does that sentence make sense? Anyways, I highly recommend these holds for climbers of all abilities.
