Trainingstone 30 Degree Pockets

P270Z3748
$70.04

The whole idea of a pocket is to force a climber to hold it open-handed. These +30º Pockets are ideal for training on steeper boards to improve pocket strength and will help develop pocket strength on flatter-less steep boards.

Having a super-friendly radii these pockets, even the mono, wont feel like it's attacking your tendon/s.

Each hold is paired so you can easily set up a symmetrical system board.

The famous Bleaustone fine surface-texture has also been used to great effect on these holds, resembling the skin preserving properties of wood but with all the predictable friction of resin.

This is a set of 6 holds.

See also my reviews of 45 degree slopers and positive crimps. Like the other Bleaustone holds, the 30 degree pockets are easy to fit and once fitted remain secure. Use of these holds requires a bit more practrice than the slopers or crimps, since to get the best out of them you should really be trying to isolate different groups of fingers, i.e the two closet the thumb, then the middle two and then the two furthest from thumb. See Eric Horst's book "Training for Climbing" for a full description of an open hand grip. Using these pockets is hard work and your climbing muscles should be well warmed first. I have to add a note of caution for the single finger pockets. These monos can place a real strain on the tendons in your fingers and the potential training benefit has to weighed against the risk of injury. I tend only to use these when I know that I have a good grip with the other hand and that my feet won't slip. Like the other holds I have reviewed, I try to exercise on these holds in three sets of 4 to 6 moves and a 1 to 2 minute rest between sets.
