Jared on Talking Holds

Do not park in the residential neighborhood! Park in the designated lot MORE INFO >>>


Talking Holds follows a finger/hand crack straight up the steep wall and then left, with some juggy broken blocks to grab for variety. Fun, overhanging and pumpy.


In the Crag X area, just around the corner left and uphill from Supervalue.


Standard trad rack to 3". Anchor is bolted and a 60m rope is long enough to TR.

Start feels a little bouldery but the rest of the climb is positive and well-protected overhanging fun. Climb is in the shade for most of the day and you can TR Turbocharger from the anchor.

Super fun and burly. You'll feel like a pro on the sick, overhanging features. Awesome protection throughout, highly recommend doubling up on BD #2s for the crux (Found it to be the flaring handcrack just above the roof-blocks about half way up.)
