Wood Holds - Set B
Made in Sheffield from sustainably sourced high-quality birch plywood, Wood Holds Set B is the newest edition of holds to join the MoonBoard system. Aimed at climbers who wish to train at Font 6b+ (V4) level and above, Wood Holds Set B are exceptional hardwearing, skin-friendly and will not polish over time.
Wood Holds Set B will feature on the new MoonBoard Masters 2019 setup which will be available in the MoonBoard app at the end of November 2019.
New for 2019, Wood Hold Set B contains 24 new wood hold shapes for your MoonBoard setup. Perfect for intermediate to advanced climbers, this collection of holds has undergone rigorous testing at The School Room in Sheffield, and have passed with flying colours. They are hardwearing, skin-friendly and will not polish over time.
There are three different hold thicknesses:
- 8 x 23mm
- 8 x 35mm
- 8 x 50mm
Hold numbers 51 and 77 are mirrored shapes.
Hold Set B is made in the UK from sustainably sourced high-quality birch plywood.

The pandemic has provoked an unprecedented rush on home walls, including the iconic MoonBoard. In 2019, MoonClimbing came out with their third hold set using the app-driven interface, the near-perfect Masters 2019, which adds two wood sets (Set B and Set C) to wood Set A from 2017. The result is a board that’s 40 percent wood and 60 percent resin, with the wood denser in the high-use middle rows. The new wood grips are some of the best, most user-friendly shapes on the market—Sets B and C are larger, smoother, and more ergonomic than Set A (which was basically for V8-plus climbers), letting anyone sending V3/V4 sample the lightly ridged, skin-friendly birch plywood. Favorites have been the biting—but not tweaky—crimps, incut flanges, boomerang-bananas, and squeeze-hard-or-die pinches. The wood holds brush clean nicely, and don’t need to be removed to be power-washed. To my mind, the 2019 set represents the best of 2016 and 2017—nothing’s too big (like 2017’s reds), and nothing’s too small (ahem, yellow Original School Holds), meaning all 198 holds are essentially usable at reasonable grades. Plus, by grabbing so much wood, you can session longer or hit the board post-rock.
