Are you Chicken, or fishy?

Back around 7 years ago my friend had these sweet Urethane screw on crimps that you could get half a pad on. They were around 4 inches long and 2 inches wide. I'm pretty sure whatever company was making them is no longer around. Anyone have any suggestions on where to find something similar?

Also does anyone have some good leads on great deals for climbing holds? My new wall will be 35 degrees from horizontal (55 from vert), so I need holds big enough that I can actually hold em.

Make 'em out of wood. For free.

Only free if you already have the tools and wood.

So buy a piece of pine at the lumber store, use a jack knife, kitchen knife etcetera. You can whittle like Uncle Jed. I use a band saw and belt sander, which I can understand that not everyone has, but can churn them out very quickly.

I would recomend whittling them from a long piece, shaping an end of a one foot piece, then cutting it off and doing it again. Try splitting the board into strips after cutting it into 1 foot lengths.

You will need a cheap hand saw, a knife and a drill.
