Crimp

Crimps

Crimp is usually small, slightly positive edge that is just deep enough to fit the tips of fingers into. A technique called “crimping” is used to gain maximum adhesion to these holds. Crimps are slightly larger than chips, but not big enough to be easy. Crimps require careful finger placement and force technique and control over brute strength. They are some of the most common holds you’ll find in climbing, both indoor and out. Crimps are small edges of rock or plastic that are only big enough to fit your fingertips. Crimps may vary from larger edges fitting several finger pads to tiny “credit card” crimps that may only have room enough for a thin sliver of your fingertips.
