That sweet gnarley set should be called the "Little Titans".

They are for kids, and they are smaller in dimension, bu like the titans they pack a punch. Good luck with the renaming.

I think that they should be named "Bruce Lee," after the great martial arts master.

Able to do more with less.

I think they should be called "The Diehards" cause no matter how much you've got these holds are ready for more.

How about "afterburners" ?

You're fingers are on fire when you're done climbing them.

They should be called the Juggernauts. These holds are so good they will destroy all other holds.

I'm thinking, "ape index". They are bound to stretch you out.

They are intended for kids right, but they are also great for any level climber. Maybe "Hand Candy" because of the variety of holds, all them being sweet.

The South African flag has Red, Blue, and Green in it. Oh, and it also has Rocklands in it. So that's my suggestion, Rocklands

I suggest "Nom Nom Nom," cause when little kids climb they're so cute you just want to eat them up.

"Monkey Business" for the pesky but funny way of kids and the easeful joy of monkees swinging on the vines.

The Tadpoles - In line with your naming conventions (guppies/leapers)

The sizing seems to fit as well.

Cheers!

The hold have horizontal lines as if two forces were at work. In Mechanics or geology this can be called Shear. So I think the holds should be called

"Sheer Frictions".

I hope you like the name.

Hey,

NoahZ said...

Id also like to leave some other proposals for you guys

'Radja' Fred Nicoles first V14
'Aspiro' to climb in Latin
'Crimpin' Ain't Easy'


Im not sure if you plan to do this set in three different colors or if there are three different themes with-in the set but you guys could call them 'Trilogy' or 'New Trilogy' or something along the lines of that :D?

Note from Three Ball Climbing:

Just an FYI for the contributors,
The winner will receive their choice of any holds totalling $115 from the website. It will not be limited to winning the pictured set.

Keep em comin!

zlonewolfe said...

Perhaps "Jibbidy Doo Dahs"?

Dunno if that counts as copyright infringement . . .

Another option, since there seems to be quite a variety of sweet holds, and variety is the spice of life, would be "sugar and spice"

call 'em

"Rickshaws"

small things used for movement that rely on human strength and endurance.

How about "rock nuggets" or just "nuggets." They're kind of smaller holds, but meaty enough to still leave you satisfied.
