What is a pocket hold climbing?
Pockets are holds that basically act as holes in the wall. They are usually really deep, but very small so as to not fit more than 3 fingers. Pockets are categorized by how many fingers you can fit inside, for example, a “mono-pocket” accommodates one digit, a “two finger pocket” of course houses two.
What is a climbing jug?
Jugs are great holds for climbing beginners or those who want an easier climb. These holds are smooth with a deep incut, giving your hands more of a handle to hold as you pull yourself up the wall face.
What are the different climbing holds?
- Jug/Bucket. Jugs are big, open holds that you can get your whole hand around.
- Edge/Ledge. Edges are the most common holds you find.
- Crimp. A crimp is a very small edge that’s only big enough for the pads of your fingers.
