Agripp launch the Dune climbing hold range. Product News

New for 2018: Beacon Climbing are pleased to announce the latest release from Agripp: the competition orientated Dune range.

A radical departure from Agripp's trademark precision style, Dune embraces the current trend dominating competition climbing for simple, clean shapes that facilitate dynamic and compression movement.


Modern indoor bouldering is evolving and the use of larger, cleaner holds à la Dune, is shifting the setting style away from brute strength orientated moves towards problems that place a greater reliance on technique and co-ordination, in addition to encouraging experimentation with movement.

With Dune, the frustration of not being strong enough is no longer always the barrier to success and it's hard to argue against the more engaging and playful experience that this climbing hold style offers the contemporary climber.

The Dune range is available to order now in a choice of 9 standard colours. Custom colours are available on request.

Key Features

  • Agripp design heritage – shaped by master sculptor Philippe Ceulemans.
  • Clean, simple shapes with large edges, pinches and slopers dominating the range.
  • Multiple screw attachment points for screw-on only mounting.
  • Perfect for competition style boulder and route setting.

About Agripp

The Agripp story begins in the forest, on the rock, under a climber's fingers over thirty years ago when modern climbing was in its infancy.

Founded by master sculptor Philippe Ceulemans, Agripp is a fusion of family sculpting heritage and passion for rock climbing stretching back decades. Philippe received his sculpting heritage from his grandfather and great-grandfather, and completed his education at the Fine Arts Schools of Brussels. 25 years after shaping his first holds in 1991, Philippe still works in the workshop of his grandfather, where as a child his love for sculpting began.

In his early days as a shaper, Philippe was influenced by his friends Arnould T'Kint, one of the world's best climbers at the time and Jean-Marc Blanche, the creator of the first climbing hold.

The Agripp design philosophy has always been to create fluid and original shapes that are ergonomic to use and that also incorporate the latest climbing hold technologies. Each Agripp climbing hold design is crafted by Philippe and represents a unique artwork and climbing experience: a synergy of his two passions.

Agripp products are available in the UK exclusively through Beacon Climbing.
