In the undercling, the hands (palms up) push up beneath a lip of rock while the body leans out and the feet push against rock (fig. 9-12). The arms pull while the feet push, creating a counterforce. Try to keep your arms extended. Both hands can undercling at the same time, or one hand can undercling while the other uses a different type of hold.
An undercling hold may have multiple uses. For example, you can hold the bottom edge of a rock flake in a pinch grip from below, then convert to an undercling as you move up to the flake.
