Now in it’s sixth year, the Climbing Business Journal’s Grip List is the industry’s annual survey of routesetters—to determine their favorite brands of climbing holds and volumes.
The survey runs from May 20 through June 2 and can be accessed with the link below. We want opinions from as many routesetters as possible, so please share the link with the other setters on your team.
Which holds are your favorite?
Before completing the survey, we recommend taking a moment to check out the latest shapes. Currently there are more than 40 brands shaping and producing holds with distribution in North America… and a vast majority of those brands have introduced new shape lines since last year’s survey. For convenience we have links to hold brand websites for your research.
