Alien Hold

This dual-purpose hold features a flat, 20mm deep slope angled downward at 15 degrees on one side, and two "organic" 10mm crimp surfaces on the other - one slightly pocketed and the other slightly rounded. It is a great hold for those wishing to train on both positive and non-positive surfaces. The 10mm crimp side is designed to closer mimic the irregular non-flat surface features one might expect from real rock, and has a very nice positive feel to it.  The sloper side is non-positive, but it's size and grippy texture instill plenty of confidence. It ends up being angled downward about 23 degrees when suspended from a QC2 plate.

CrimpWerks holds are made from masters that are crafted out of special high-quality, high-density phenolic foam. This results in a refined surface texture that delivers subtle yet ample friction while also being gentle on the skin. For more aggressive finger strength training, you can gently sand the hold surfaces with high-grit sandpaper to any desired level of smoothness, giving them a distinct wood-like feel. The decrease in surface friction will demand greater finger strength to engage comparable levels of resistance.

All holds are rated to 250 lbs (113 Kg) per hold.

Each hold is sold separately. For a set, please order 2.

Note to existing customers: The new QC2 holds are not compatible with the original QC plates. This is because of the shape of the cavity on the back of the hold that seats the cleat. If you wish to use QC2 holds on the original QC plate, please use the QC2 Conversion Kit that can be found here
