    Get strong without leaving skin behind.

    Want to get strong? Of course you do. The problem is that the more you train the more skin you take off your fingers. You can pick up a fire hydrant with one hand but can hardly get the keys out of your pocket. The smooth texture of the Wood Grips Training Board keeps those fingers feeling good while you get super strong.

    Easy direct attachment

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Yep, mounting on plywood is ideal, but if you want to put this handsome board directly into studs, you can.
    Screw holes are 16 inches apart, for standard stud spacing. That'll cover most homes, even older ones like ours.
    Still, not all studs span a 16 inch gap. It's another 2 inches to the thick ridge between the outermost finger holes and the next set in, so you could drill a set 18 or 20 inches apart.
    A few old homes have 24 inch studs, and while the board is wide enough, that's so far apart, you'd probably want a plywood layer to start.
    Great board! Functional and comfortable!

    Easier on the skin, good for the pump!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Mounted this bad boy next to a plastic hangboard for the combination. This thing is awesome! Easy on the skin so you can session even after long days out or training.



    Excellent minimal set up, not too many holds, but the perfect variety.



    Excellent starter board - will keep you confidently pulling even when you hands feel like fire.



    Wood is the new plastic!

    Stylish Trainer

      Works extremely well and is the only training board my wife will agree to let me hang in the house.

      yep

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Nice looking wood, big ol' jugs on top plus a slopey(ish) middle section. I've got tendon issues at the moment so I haven't gotten much use out of the shallower pockets, but they feel nice and there's all kinds of variety.

      Title: Title

        Awesome board and then some. Great for keeping it up between bouldering trips. Enough holds to keep it interesting. I put mine above the door and find myself doing extra holds throughout the day and it really adds up quickly in developing contact strength.

        It really makes my muscles "HOWL" after a workout

          This is a great training board, and it is easy on the fingers/paws!

          Eyesore?

            No. Looks great inside the house. If you get hurt, leave it there as wall art.

            Smooth wood is easy on the skin too.

            Also, if you get too fat and can't use it, it easily doubles as a nice spice rack.

            Looks Good

              Lots of good holds, the wood is smooth, and it looks great in a room.

              Great finger-friendly training board

                I'm trying to get back into rock-climbing after a fall a few years ago. Alongside climbing, I wanted to get something for home that would let me train when I can't get to the wall. The Metolius training board is perfect - doesn't tear up my hands, which helps with long training periods. Looks great in the house too ...

                Soooo Smooooooth

                  Lots of holds, lots of variety, and doesn't look too bad hung up. And the wood -- smoooooth.

                  WOOD is GOOD

                    This is the perfect training tool for around the house. Easy to hang and sits firmly against the wall, plenty of holds for a variety of pulls and the wood really is SO SWEET on the fingers.

                    Has anyone tried this with the blank slate door hanger? Do you know if it fits?

                    The measurements for this are 28.25" x 6.9" and the measurements for the backboard are 32" x 9.5". It fits.

                    Does this fit with the back board made by Metolius?

                    Yes. The measurements for this are 28.25" x 6.9" and the measurements for the backboard are 32" x 9.5"

                    Is it ok to use chalk on this board? I'm afraid that it may dry out/crack the wood compared to a regular synthetic board.

                    Having seen chalk used on Metolius' wood holds in the gym, I don't think it'll do too much damage. I also find that I need it less on wood than I do on synthetics, so it might not be an issue for you.

                    Is size (and price) the only difference between the compact and the deluxe?

                    Wood Grips vs Simulator 3D?
                    I'm new to climbing in the past few months and want to be able to train at home to ramp up my strength so I can focus on learning while at the gym. I'm in need for sure of pull-ups (limited back strength right now for sure) in addition to finger strengthening.
                    Anyone have a strong opinion about either of these boards to put me in one direction or another? I appreciate it, y'all!

                    Best Answer

                    You'd get a similar level of exercise but the wood board is way nicer on your skin, meaning you can train longer without tearing your hands apart.

                    Does this bad boy have slopers anywhere?...

                    Does this bad boy have slopers anywhere? I can't tell if the top center part is angled/sloped or flat.

                    Best Answer

                    There are no slopers on this board. The top has two jugs on each side of the top. Then in the middle it has a 3 pad flat rail.

                    I have the smaller version and it has a sloper between the two jugs on the top.

                    I have this board installed at home. I would call the top section between the two jugs a sloper. Holds are as follows.

                    Top: two wide-spaced jugs with broad sloper in between
                    1st row: shallow three-finger pockets, two finger pockets
                    2nd row: deep edge, deep three-finger pockets, deep four-finger pockets
                    3rd row: shallow edge, medium four-finger pockets, shallow four-finger pockets.

                    Hey how easy is it to do standard pull ups on here? It doesn't seem to have any bomber knobs?

                    It has two big jugs on either side. You just can't see in BC's picture.
