any sharp micro crimp that f#cks your hand up when you pop off. and monos that your finger gets jammed into so if you fall youll either be held by one of your lone rangers or you just rip the finger off completely. not sure which one is more painful but both are bunk.

Give me a big ole slopper any day. Next to a slopper I like to get my hands in bomber jams.

The hardest handholds .For me I think the hardest one are those crimpy and hidden ones on the crag and on the artificial wall still those crimpy ones but here I see them .

I can't figure out slopers, but I would rather have a tough time with slopers than a good time at work anyday.

Slopers are a pain in the ass, but when you stick a hard sloper off a sweet move it's intant self esteem and ego inflation. However, I normally find my hands being repelled from smooth slopers and sometimes I want to take a chain saw and cut a jug into them!

Undeclings kick my ass for some reason, but the ones it really dislike are crimpers that you can barely see, let alone try to pull on them.
Give me jams, slopers and pockets and I'll be happy.

Pinches on overhanging walls, especially when the holds are so small you can only get 2-3 fingers on each one. Oh, and mono pockets suck too.

Pinching. I over come it by avoiding it. Crimps suck, too. And, slopers are out.

Pretty much just stick to cracks and jamming, but will do crimps if they aren't to small and slopers for balance.

Slopers. The way that they can tuck at your wrist just right so that the rest of your time climbing is pretty much ruined.

slopers are the best. the hardest are pinches crimps. especially on problems that seem to pull you away from the boulder. its very easy to pop a tendon on those ones.
