I did try it and it worked but it took a bit of tinkering, it is a bit of a mess but when you get it right it will produce a lighter hold then a standard hold and will have a similar texture.
I like the acetone-then-sand Idea. Have you tried that yet? Did it give good results?
 I don't think there is any easy way to do that -- but you can post your raw Autodesk files then at least others that use Inventor can modify it.

Instructions

I have not fully tested it but when printing use at least 4-5 shells, I am testing different % of object fill and will update when I find a good mix.
!!!!WARNING!!!!
Climbing can be dangerous. All climbing hold that are tested on your own, is your responsibility and should be tested in a safe and controlled environment.

I just finished testing on the holds and it will depending on the use of the holds, here are the minimum requirements;
For just a hand hold: 4 Shells with a 20% object fill, but if the hole on the wall is bigger I would suggest 5 shells.
For Hand and foot hold: 5 Shells with 35-40% object, also if the wall has a bigger hole I would put 7 shells.
Remember these are just the min requirements!

The biggest problem that I had was when i would tighten the bolt to the wall and the wall hole was big enough to fit the bolt and 4 shells so with the lower object fill it would pull the inner shells out of the hold.
This has been on my list of things to do for awhile -- very nice. Thank you. Can you publish a SCAD so we can all play with it a bit?

Have you tried anything to get the finish non slippery? I was thinking if you print in ABS - you can roll it in acetone then sand and get a decent finish.

I am using Autodesk Inventor and have never had to a SCAD how would I get a SCAD from an .iam or .ipt file

I will try to put up a SCAD design. I do print in ABS and scratch it with a knife this has worked will the few times I have tested it but for long term I was planning on rolling it a cement or sand mix.
