The Project comes in assorted colors, so although we're not sure what color you'll get, we do know you'll develop tendons like steel cable. In addition to all the mounting hardware, the Project comes with instructions and a training guide to get you off the ground in no time.

    Love it so far!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I recently entered the rock climbing world and immediately realized i need to get stronger. This is my first hangboard and so far I love it. Im working up to really being able to finger hang but for now I love doing pull-ups on the top, side jugs.

    Train at home

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This board is easy to install and has plenty of great holds on it. It's a great piece of equipment to have installed and practice on once in a while to increase your strength. Now that I don't have a gym pass, it's nice having this at home so I can do some form of training.

    First board I've purchased

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    It is a great board! It took me a minute to install because I needed to purchase an extra ply of wood.
    The patterns are beautiful too! Great holds :)

    Great little board

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Easy to install and plenty of holds for a novice like myself. I can already see some improvements after only having this a few weeks. Great little board.

    Awesome board, but a little awkward

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This Metolius board had been awesome so far! Plenty of holds, awesome feel and quality, and good look. The only gripe I have with this board is the screw-hole mounts are not sized to meet standard studs, and thus makes the board a little awkward to mount directly to a wall. This is easily remedied by a wooden board on the back and a little knowhow.

    Great Beginner/Low Head Space Hangboard

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Here's an updated review now that I've had it for a long time.

    Of the training boards on the market, Metolius is making some of the best training boards out there. I picked up this training board because it is not as tall as the Contact or the Simulator 3D so it's perfect for going above a door that does not have enough space for a taller training board.

    Jugs:
    Jugs for days! You can hang on these forever and bust out pull ups for as long as you'd like. Plus I like these for offset hangs when working up to harder holds.

    Slopers:
    These are a tad harder than the middle sloper and smaller width wise.

    Middle Sloper:
    This is the easiest sloper on the board. But it's one big sloper so if you're aiming to get two hands on it for an easy sloper hang, that can be a bit tough to maintain because of how close your hands are.

    Crimps:
    The number of crimps across the board is great. There are a couple edges/crimps that are deep 4-fingers, a mid depth 4 -finger and a shallow 3-finger. Great for progressing as you get stronger from training. If you find the shallower holds harder to use, try doing an offset hang to easy up the difficulty.

    Inner Rails:
    I love the inner rails for offset pull ups or offset hangs and working on general finger strength!

    Ease of Installing:
    This training board is super easy to install. Eight screws total. I'd recommend attaching this to a backer board with the backer board secured properly into studs.

    Chalk:
    I've covered mine in chalk to try and remove the greasy feeling that the board has when you get it. Sometimes they use to much mold release agent when making them and they have a greasy feel.

    Stuck on v5? this will help

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Every climber hits this plateau around V5 it just happens to EVERY climber. If you want to get better you have to facilitate your climbing with training. Professional climbers are professionals because they train for it. YOU HAVE TO DO THE SAME. This hang board was one of the first that I got and it helped me condition my fingers arms and shoulders so that I could push past my plateau. It's pretty reasonably priced and below is a link to a youtube vid on how to mount it without drilling holes in your walls :D

    Great for beginners

      I love this thing. I hung it by my door and hang on it every time I walk by. With constant practicing even a little a day your hands strengthen rapidly. Climbing becomes easier before you can realize what is happening.

      Cheapest board, best quality

        First of all, this board delivers all the necessary holds to become serious about hangboard training with the exception of any pinch grips.
        When I first got this board, I could barely stay on the slopers and could maybe get my feet off the ground on the small 3F pockets and edge. Now, just after THREE sessions I can hang for 5 seconds easily on the smallest edge, and crank out pullups on both the slopers. I was blown away. But this could be with any board I assume.
        I rent an apt and I set up the board so there aren't any holes in the wall or marks. I also made my own wooden jugs, slopers and campus rung on the sides.

        Excellent Product

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        We're new to the climbing world (just started about 4 months ago) and have a very long way to go before we can hang with the big boys at our climbing gym... I purchased this product in November and after a few weeks of hanging, we have noticed definite improvement in our grip strength! The quality is excellent (it's way heavier than you think), great texture, and feels very secure when installed properly to the studs (we used additional deck screws for added security). Since we're newbies, we've only been able to use the bigger/deeper holds but I have no doubt that this board will help us continue our progress.

        Excellent Product

        Brings the whole house together

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Me and all my roommates share this hang board and we love it. It is a great first hang board . The only flaw is that the middle holds are useless. Other than that I love this board.

        The Real Deal

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This board is great, has excellent grip and a lot of holds. Don't think it is necessary to get a big board unless you are doing some serious training.

        Great hang board for training

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This board is just what I needed for mid-week, non climbing gym workouts. I use it 2x per week (along with 2-3 gym workouts per week). The only reason I didn't give it 5stars is because the training guide that comes with it is horrible. Luckily there are plenty of youtube videos available to give you ideas.

        Great addition to Grip Training

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        The variety of grips encourage a great range of grip strength training for all activities - awesome addition to Performance Training Systems Gym in Chicago, IL.

        Great addition to Grip Training

        Simply perfect.

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I didn't want anything fancy or over the top, but wanted something that had the durability and reliability needed for a long lasting hang board. This has fit the bill perfectly. It's been used regularly, and has held up, keeping my finger strength up when I'm not able to make it to the crag or gym. No complaints!

        super duper!

          this thing is great! it's perfect size and has a good amount of holds to work with. my only problem was screwing in the wood board behind it, I had a hard time finding the studs in the wall but I found them eventually! great product double thumbs up!!

          Unanswered Question

          How deep are the holds? I don't think it was listed anywhere in the dimensions.

          Is shipping available to Malaysia ??

          Is shipping available to Malaysia ??

          Best Answer

          While metolius products can be shipped internationally, backcountry.com does not currently list Malaysia as one of the countries they ship to. I would give them a call or an email and see if they can do anything. I recently chatted with them, and the staff is super helpful and courteous. I'm sure if there is any way they can help you, they will. Have fun climbing out there!

          Is it possible to mount this on a door...

          Is it possible to mount this on a door mounted pull up bar? I live in an apartment where we aren't allowed to drill into the walls

          It looks like you used hooks to attach to the bar, but doesn't that cause a lot of swing? you could run a 1X6 on the back of your hangboard, the exterior width of your door so it hits your door frame and prevents swing. kinda late, sorry, but it's an idea.

          Looking for a hangboard around $50 and am...

          Looking for a hangboard around $50 and am debating between this one and the So iLL Blister Board. Does anyone have a recommendation?

          To be honest, it's not really the hangboard that matters, it's the USER!

          Purchase which ever hangboard you think will get you pumped to train on it more.

          You could do pull ups and train on anything, so the key is to get whatever will get you the most motivated :)
