We offer a wide range of Hanging Pinches, which divided into three big classes with respect to its training functionality:
- Flat. Fully symmetrical shape. Side planes of Pinches are parallel to each other. These are regular pinches of average gripping difficulty.
- Incut. Asymmetrical shape. These Pinches thicken to the base, ending with a smooth rounding. Obviously, gripping these pinches is the easiest.
- Open. Asymmetrical shape. These Pinches become thinner to the base, ending with a smooth rounding. Obviously, gripping these pinches is the hardest.
In turn, each above type of Pinches is divided into two subclasses:
“Pinch strength is hard to gain and easy to ignore … until you need”, said famous British climber and coach, Neil Gresham in his paper published recently in Rock and Ice magazine. According to him, while elite boulderers seem to be able to crush the most marginal sloping features, many sport and trad climbers lag behind in this respect, and favor routes and problems with incut holds. With sloper strength and pinch strength linked, since most slopers require the use of the thumb, many climbers are weak in both. Conversely, training in either improves the other.
Hanging Pinches rewards you with amazing training days and makes you happy with your climbing!
Attention! Hanging Pinches are not training devices for beginners! Proper warming up before climbing or climbing exercises is strongly recommended. Warming up before training sessions prevents injuries and guarantees maximal performance. Keep your fingers warm before training with Hanging Pinches!
