any know where I can get those round climbing holds that you can hang?

Can't find them anywhere!

Simple balls with metal eyelet imbedded into them!

Any URL's appreciated as I'm stumped!

thx

Lucky you! Every wall I go on seems to have them, usually exactly where you don't want them.

In reply to jazzyjackson: I think you are after lapis rolls balls by te sound of it? They sell them at v12 amongst other shops. There also some wooden ones which are more blocks than spheres, called Metolius wood grips ( that are slightly cheaper).

they are a great addition to a finger board/chin up set up!
According to the blog they make a beast out of a man!

Hunter S thomson would have approved!

Pretty nice to handle actually. Very easy on the skin but no problems holding on to them, provided you squeeze hard enough!

cool. and the steel screw in eyelets seem to bare the weight ok?
pilot hole first I assume!

Gonna get some. nice one ; )

Provided you've got a drill bit long enough, it probably will be stronger to make through holes and thread them with the cord like Metolius Portable Power Grips.

But that's just me.

Yeah got some heavy duty looking eyelets from the DIY shop, 5 mm ish probably. They are bomber. Definitely drill a generously sized pilot hole, it's very hard wood. I had to use a lever to finish screwing the eyelets in all the way. Enjoy!
