A jug is a large, secure climbing hold.  These are the favourites of all new climbers, as they provide a  point of contact, either for hands or feet.  Indoors, jugs are often used on easier grade climbs, or on some of the harder grade climbs, where a dyno, or tricky committing move is required to reach it. 

It can be truly said that here at climbing explained, we love jugs (now that’s a bumper sticker slogan waiting to happen!)
