The hold formerly known as XL-E24.

Very deep, slightly positive symetrical edge. Perfect and huge on vertical walls, but more suited for steeper terrain, even up to 30 as you can get a thumb involved and pinch it.

Requires 1 x 2.5" bolt.

View on Your Wall

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.

So much fun to add to my super crimp 30 degree board, great sloping edge. - you can rotate it to make it more tensiony and harder.

Straight forward fat sloper

Sinker sloper on face walls, becomes just right at around 15 degrees to spit you off mid dyno.

Perfect on a 45 - you really have to hang on. There's enough room for matching too.

Perfect edge!

We have this on our 45 degree wall and it makes for problems requiring excellent body tension.
