Holds & Volumes

Our holds provide a great solution for all applications; from a home training wall to setting World Cup level competition routes.

Summit Climbing Walls distributes for Gecko King across Australia and New Zealand. We work closely with Gecko to continuously improve and refine products to offer the best possible options for the climbing industry at an affordable price. The extensive range provides a good solution for all applications from a home training wall to setting World Cup level competition routes.

Climbing holds are available in 2 materials;

  • Glass fibre Reinforced Polyester (GRP)
  • Polyurethane.

Both materials have their benefits to any climbing environment so we’ve identified a few key points to consider when choosing the right solution for your wall;

Glass fibre Reinforced Polyester (GRP)
  • Excellent durability
    • Ideal for high traffic environments
    • Material wears far slower than polyurethane
  • Cheaper than polyurethane
  • Brittle material
    • Can crack if overtightened or edges can chip
Polyurethane
  • Significantly lighter than GRP
    • Easier to handle, especially on larger holds
  • Less brittle than GRP
    • Won’t chip or crack as easily
  • Softer material
    • Will wear and polish faster than GRP

We design, manufacture and construct engineer approved rock climbing walls and also provide maintenance, route setting and onsite instruction services.
