Competition Time! WIN A HOLD!

slap
Who wants to win a hold? $x worth of hold.. why is it $x? Because it's not made yet!! It's on its way... and let's face it... YOU DO! The hold is 180 x180 and its a stalactite!

All you have to do is name the hold pictured below, it's on its way, it's not on Slap's website, it's not anywhere!! The only images you'll see are here, Slap are making it now, and molding is soon to be done, you'll be the FIRST PERSON to get it!!! BEFORE ME!

As they progress with the hold manufacturer they'll send me more images and I'll keep you updated! Below are some pictures of the foam blank, you should start thinking, and suggesting NOW!!To enter all you need to do is:
  • Post a comment on this post with your suggestion and email address
OR
  • Mail me with your suggestion, with the subject line as "SLAP Comp"
Simple!

The competition closes on March 1st, when done I'll send your suggestions to Dylan and Lucy at Slap, they'll pick their favorite and then will contact you for your mailing address... then voila! You'll be the proud owner of a hold that no-one else has!!! OH! and if you don't want this hold you can pick some from their site instead :P

NOTE:
Oh I totally forgot that Slap made this hold for the comp... how frickin cool is that?? Incase you can't guess it REALLY FRICKIN COOL!

I think that reminds me of a tornado more than anything. That Sick and Twisted (no pun intended)hold should be called

"Twister Valley"

I post the comments in the order that I get them. They all get passed by my inbox before they hit the blog.

weirdness, if there are similar entires I am checking the time stamps on the time I got the email and will use the one that was posted first (i.e: timestamped at the earlier date and time)

Blogger is having trouble with comments right now, they're not always updating.... so best to send a direct email just incase

How about "SOFT SERVE" because of how much it looks like soft serve ice cream. Then again you could call it the "DRIP" or "DRIBBLE". I don't know, I like "SOFT SERVE".

The Hangover, because after after comming in contact with this hold you can't remember what you were climbing on before.

The Hang-under

the Apogee, because this the highest level of climbing hold on the market.

Amnesia, because after climbing on this hold you can't remember why you'd climb on anything else.
