The original Beacon climbing hold range, tried and tested on climbing walls throughout the UK and Europe for over 20 years.

Born out of our passion for climbing on the world-class mountains, cliffs and boulders of North Wales, Beacon is located near Llanberis within the heart of the Welsh climbing scene and has been producing climbing holds and operating Beacon Climbing Centre since 1994.

Our 20 years of accumulated experience and knowledge, as both end user and manufacturer, allows us to exactly understand the process behind shaping and manufacturing premium climbing holds. This is what we produce.

Features & Technology


All Beacon climbing holds (except the smallest sizes) are fitted with a safety coil manufactured into the hold. In the unlikely event that a climbing hold should break in use, the safety coil binds the broken pieces together and prevents large parts of the hold falling to the ground and injuring people below.


Spinning climbing holds are a cause of unexpected falls on climbing walls. All Beacon climbing holds (except XS bolt-on sizes) feature a secondary fixing point in addition to the main bolt hole. This smaller fixing point accepts a regular 5mm diameter wood screw and prevents the climbing hold from spinning in use.


All Beacon bolt-on climbing holds use a dual bolt washer that allows either M10 countersunk or cap head bolts to be used to mount the holds. This metal insert creates a more even stress distribution within the climbing hold – thus increasing the force required to break the hold through the bolt hole.


All Beacon climbing holds (except for XS and larger sizes) are moulded using CX200 polyester (PE) resin. The benchmark material for climbing holds, PE provides the best combination of surface texture feel, surface wear resistance and colour resilience whilst retaining low manufacturing costs.


Our larger climbing holds are moulded in Dannomond polyurethane (PU) with a lightweight hollow back design. Not only is PU significantly lighter than PE making route setting with large holds easier, it is also stronger and more durable making it less prone to chipping and breaking.


Every Beacon climbing hold is individually inspected and stamped with a traceable quality control stamp on the base of the hold along with the date of manufacture. Samples from batches are regularly tested to failure in order to ensure that our stringent manufacturing standards are consistently maintained.


Suitable for use on children’s play areas, these climbing holds are positive and easy for little hands to grip and importantly all feature a non-hooking design to prevent accidentally snagging clothing. Tried and tested on numerous playgrounds and children’s climbing walls throughout the UK.


All Beacon Climbing Holds comply with EN 12572-3 Artificial Climbing Structures. Part 3: Safety requirements and testing methods for climbing holds.
