This collection of holds introduces shapes beyond big, comfy jugs. Climbers in gyms and outside encounter holds that vary in shape, orientation, and use. When you add Apprentice-level holds to routes, you provide the opportunity for novice climbers to build new skills and take on a little more challenge.Apprentice holds offer smaller jugs, and moderately sized and comfortably shaped edges, pinches, and slopers. Climbers will need to try different techniques and body position. These holds are still shaped gently enough that climbers can practice and learn without experiencing frustration.
