Looking to add even more versatility to the natural climbing surface? Look no further. Climbing Holds are the answer! They come in all shapes, sizes, designs, and colors and allow the client to customize and adjust places for the hands and feet to go while controlling the difficulty of climbing the Boulder.
So how do Climbing Holds work?
For the Climbing Hold process Evolve Play finds appropriate locations on the boulders surface where a Climbing Hold can be located. A surface hole is drilled and a T-nut installed. A T-nut is essentially a threaded nut with a connection flange. The T-nut is installed on the interior of the boulder and from the exterior; only a small hole can be seen. Wherever a T-nut is located a Climbing Hold can be placed by simply face bolting it on.
Average number of Climbing Hold locations per Boulder:
Little Foot – 7 Horseshoe Bend – 12 Giants Chair – 35 Elephant Rock – 55
Handholds with a purpose:
So you have a Boulder that is ready for Climbing Holds, now what? The possible layout and configuration of Climbing Holds is only limited by your imagination. Configuring the Climbing Holds to meet a specific purpose or goal is known as route setting. Goals of route setting can include but aren’t limited to endurance, strength, muscle memory, balance, sensory play or simple enjoyment. Remember to have fun and be creative while keeping safety in mind.
