Screw-On Rails by Metolius are yet another radical new addition to the Metolius training line. They are, like the plates, mini features for your wall. Their intricate micro-features are excellent for use as miniature hand or footholds for increased difficulty. They are cool because you can cross or match on them, something you can't do easily on most small to medium holds. And they attach to the wall via our heavyweight, self-driving decking screws, so they can be mounted ANYWHERE and are not dependant upon your t-nut grid.
Rails provide yet another way to keep your training fun by adding variety to your wall.

Pretty cool. Adds variety, or great for a (wooden) wall where putting up bolt-ons might be tricky.Good for adding some finger strength building moves to a wall, or just for mixing things up. Self-drilling screw-on mounts make it easier to put up for some locations, but won't work on your existing t-nut grid so that may be a problem... I'm throwing mine up above a long open stretch of a beam in my living room so I can play with some traverse work in the warm and cozy of my house during these long winter months. Seems like I should get some decent variety from what I've played with so far, and I think I'll flip em over or change up the order if/when I get bored with it - not bad for the $$ so far... Plus, I got a killer deal which made it even better!

These holds are toughies!!First I want to say the holds I got look nothing like the ones pictured, so don't be shocked if you get a different version of the rails than pictured. That said these little babies are super crimpy, two or three finger, one pad kinda jams. I got some kinda bubbly backbone looking light green colored rails and they can be crimped, pinched and serve as some slopey clings. I work as a rock wall setter and these holds are definitely moderate to hard holds, not so great for dyno moves or beginner climbers, but if your looking to get tough these should help you get mean with the finger tip strength. ,,They are screw in holds which is cool, and come with some pretty beef 1-3/4 screws. ,,,,Hope this helps and might post a video on the tube since I couldn't find any when I was looking to buy these. ,,
