IceHoldz™ are comprised of a two part system consisting of a proprietary composite plastic shell and a unique glacier blue backing. When combined, the shell and backing actually mimic the properties of real water ice. You can actually swing your tool into the IceHoldz™ or look for nooks and crannies for dry-tooling. Once one side of the shell gets worn, simply rotate the IceHoldz™ 90° for a new surface. Rotation provides up to four times the wear and tear. When you’re ready for a new shell, pop the shell off of the backing and send the shell back to us. We’ll give you a discount toward the purchase of a replacement shell and recycle your old one. When you receive your new shell just pop the backing back in and bolt back up on your climbing wall.
IceHoldz™ can easily be mounted onto any indoor climbing wall and interspersed among rock holds simulating a mixed route setting. IceHoldz™ are available in varying shapes and sizes, from the smallest Splatz & Blobz, to the largest, the Himalayan Series.
All IceHoldz™ are evaluated and tested by professional athletes who train year round for ice climbing, allowing us to make the best product possible.

“When climbing on real water ice, you only need a 1/4 inch pick penetration for secure placement - the same is true of IceHoldz™?”
“Just an hour a day on IceHoldz™ will help improve your ice climbing abilities regardless of skill level and is a great cross training tool for rock climbers.”
