A set of 6 medium sized pinches that resemble the shape of an hourglass.

  • The degree of pinchability varies from hold to hold across the set
  • Designed for vertical orientation for a full value pinch
  • They can also be used as edges when you orient them horizontally
  • Each hold has an anit-rotation screw hole
  • This set requires 6 x 1.5" bolts

Depending on your MOBILE device and browser you may have the option to view this hold/set in Augmented Reality (AR) on your wall. Will not work on desktop.

How to view in AR:

  1. If you see the link "View on Your Wall", simply tap the link and wait for 1-4 seconds.  Link not visible?  Your device/browser is not AR capable.
  2. When your camera opens and the 3D model of the hold appears, point your camera at a well lit wall and the hold will be "placed" there.  If your camera does not open, your device/browser is not AR capable.
  3. Once placed, you can move your device around the hold, get close, move out, above, below, place your hand close to it, rotate using two fingers.

I have tested using an iphone 12 pro (ios 17.1) and latest versions of Chrome, Firefox and Safari and they work perfect.


  • Best results seem to be with Chrome, Firefox and Safari.
  • Wall/surface needs to be well lit
  • Seems to help for there to be something else on the wall, like art, light switch, door/window frame close to where you want to place object, needs reference points
  • If hold moves around, then it needs some reference point close by, see point above
  • Brick/textured walls work well
  • Object can be placed on flat surfaces too, but since it is a climbing hold it will be oriented vertically
  • You can rotate the hold with 2 fingers
  • Hopefully soon you will be able to place object on overhanging walls in the correct orientation
  • Not working but you feel it should?  There are so many variables that could prevent it from working, but the code I am using is written by a third party and I have zero control over it.
  • All bolt-on holds/sets require socket head type bolts, except for the Classic Footholds Set which requires countersunk head bolts.
  • All bolts Uncarved Block sells are imperial 3/8" diameter with UNC threads.
  • Unless otherwise stated, t-nuts are not included with holds or sets.
  • Any items shown in pictures other than holds are to show scale and are not included with purchase.
  • More information about hold colors click here.
  • Bolts optionally supplied with holds/sets are suited for 17-20 mm thick climbing walls, if you require longer bolts order these separately.
  • It is cheaper & faster to select random colours.

An absolute staple.

These are fantastic holds, great value, amazing texture and finishing, very directional but versatile as pinches or edges. I am loving them as edges, each of the 12 individual edges is slightly different from sloping to almost incut. For the price it is an absolute no brainer. Of all the UCB holds, I think I would like to see this set expanded on over all others. An addition of another 4-6 in this style but a bit larger would be unreal. Just add them to your next order.
