Part gloss, part texture; so the route setter can dictate exactly how this shape will be used in the competition, no matter how hard the competitor tries to fight it. If you want a gold medal, you are going to have to earn it!
The majority of the work and technical engineering is in the rest of these macro holds. This part creates no edge where the macro joins the climbing wall, so the climber is forced to use the part of the hold that the route setters want to insist the climber has to. This is even more useless when the macro is in dual texture.
Designed specifically for the highest level of competition climbing, the IFSC World Cup and Championships and the Olympic Games 2020 in Tokyo.
