Gripped - - BACK TO BASICS -

Keep your picks and front points sharp Sharp picks are less likely to skate off tech­ni­cal holds. A sharp, prop­erly shaped pick is also less likely to break holds. Dull, mis­shaped picks tend to load the out­side edge of the hold rather than the back of the hold where it is strong­est. Use a half-moon file to re­move the first tooth and hook the tip of your pick. The end of your thumb­nail makes a good guide to the pro­file of the hook.
