Fantastic Training Tool

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This board has saved my grip strength during the winter while I was unable to climb outside. Great for warming up for a climb or to burn out after a session in the gym. I try to hang on it every time I go through my door.

could not ask for more

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

this board is great!! it has plenty of holds to get your weakness stronger and improve upper body strength. have used it for about a week and I already feel improvement in my climbing endurance

This board rocks

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've been very pleased with this board. It's hard to tell all of the features from the pictures.... but it's loaded. I was quite pleased to find the two sloper spots either side of center.

This > That

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Those famous lines "you can get with this, or you can get with that" is a perfect example of that. My gym has this exact training board and I absolutely love it. It gives you a lot of places to put your fingers and many that differ in depth and how many fingers you can fit in the spaces and on the outsides of the middle jug you have a nice sloper as well. If you really want to bump up your game, be on the fast track to send that project you just started then, or you just can never get enough climbing but can't make it to the gym or out to your favorite site then this training board was meant for you. Metolius Project Board is a smaller version which I actually bought for my room which is good if you don't want something this big but keep in mind the amount of pockets you have drops significantly. I wish I had just sucked it up and gone with the Simulator 3D. I get ten times more out of this one at my gym then I do the smaller one at my house and in all honesty this one really isn't much bigger than the Metolius Project Board. So get with this, not with that. You will get stronger faster and progress much quicker.

Excellent

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I use this all the time at my local gym. The top row is very good to warm up before starting your routine. The lower row is very narrow, perfect to begin getting used to smaller holds. I got one to use at home, perfect complement to the gym.

Hey all,

What is the difference between this board, the Metolius Project Board, and the Metolius Contact Board?

Best Answer Responded on

The difference between the three are options. The Project is the simplest with only the two jugs, limited slopers, and only the two rows of crimpers this one is pretty basic but might be all you need ( I have this one at home. The Simulator is a step up with the added jug and added row of of crimpers it gives your more options and hand positions to up your game and tone those muscles (we have this one set up here in the office at BC). And the Contact board is yet another step up with even more options and another difficulty level of crimpers. Also, the varying positions on the side really help develop those lats (this one is set up at the gym).

Winter Month Trainer

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

When its too cold to be climbing outdoors, and you don't feel like heading to the gym an equally good workout can come right out of this training board. Increases strength in hands, grip, and overall ability. Great alternative to constant indoor climbing or to just have around the house.

Could someone please explain the difference...

Could someone please explain the difference between this training board and the Metolius Contact Board? Also, which training board would you recommend?

Best Answer Responded on

It's just s different assortment of holds. This one has those big jugs on the top that the Contact doesn't, but the Contact has big pinches down low that this one doesn't have. Overall, the Contact is a more difficult board in terms of holds, so it depends on your current skill/strength. Hope that helps.

Great for training

There is any type of hold that you could imagine. They get your finger sterngth up. They are good for hanging or pull ups. At the moment my school climbing barn has three two new and one old. They are fun and a great climbing workout

Every climber needs one1

Excellent piece of equipment, one of my best buys to date. The amount and variety of holds allow for building maximum finger, wrist, and forearm strength. Great workout when it is to rainy for climbing.

Does anyone know the sizes of the edges/pockets, i.e. 3/4' etc

Responded on

The board is 28'' by 8.75'' if that is what you are looking for.

Responded on

Thanks but no, I am asking how deep the edges are. Example - there is a diagram here for a slightly different board:

Can't find one for this exact board though.

Can you paint it?

Can you paint it?

Responded on

Maybe with the right paint, but most paint will mess up the texture and hurt metolius' feelings.

Responded on

I wouldn't paint it. It will likely chip off but worse still, the texture will be compromised in a major way.

Mounted on 1/2" plywood at the entrance to my garage. Perfect placement for a few reps on my way out to wherever on a daily basis.

Birthday Money, Well Spent!

In a matter of Days, I went from doing One, Nasty pull-up, to Doing Three or Four Good Ones and a few Nasty pull ups every time I work on this fingerboard. The holds are challenging and doing a 'simple' 10 minute routine gives you a pump for a few hours.

Very nice

I've had this board hanging above my door for a while now. Definitely keeps me in shape during the off season or when the weather is bad and I can't make it out to the local crag.

Lotsa holds

Finished up my wall with some additional holds and I really am glad with the way the Simulator 3D fits in to the mix. The workouts and the finger training with it have been great!

. . and I've only cracked my head on the ceiling once so far, and it was because I am an idiot . . :D

Keep in mind the whole thing is below the top of my door frame by about 10 inches or so.

Responded on

6 different slopers
4 different pinches
5 different jugs

. . and about a bazillion pockets lol.

That is a great idea, I just got this and now I have a good idea for what I want to do, thanks for the inspiration!

Great Trainer

I have the old simulator, but I love it all the same. My climbing and bouldering improved significantly after I started training on this baby. Metolius has a great 10 minute power workout on their website. For endurance workouts, I stand on a step stool two feet in front of my door (you should be in a overhung position) while switching hand positions every 5-10 seconds. Time yourself and hang on till you fall off! Your forearms will be screaming by the 2 minute mark.
But be careful; injuries can happen quickly because so much stress is put on your fingers. If there is any discomfort in your fingers before a hangboard session, stop. Take a rest day and let your hands heal. Also, only hold open handed; don't put your thumb over your fingers, as it will lead to injury. Warming up and cooling down is equally important as well! With that in mind, the simulator is an amazing piece of equipment for a climber of any level.

Great Trainer

overkill?

This thing has a lot of holds. The variety is awesome, but I almost feel like the amount is unnecessary; drop 1/3 of the holds and 1/3 of the price and you have one hell of a hangboard!

Responded on

I concure.

The extra jug in the middle is totally rad, but why oh why couldn't they have added in some pinches instead of having 24 pockets?!
They coulda had it all, man . .
