    You can do without that free gym bag.

    The multiple holds and natural arc of the Metolius Project Board brings the gym to your bedroom so you can train year-round without the worthless meathead carbo-jargon. Before the canyon warms up, you’ll train hard every day on the fine-textured Project, so when it does, you’ll top out your route before your friends can say ‘climb on.’ It is compact (24.5 x 6in) so it’ll fit in your tiny apartment without disturbing the feng shui. 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.

    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

    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.

      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.

      For those with Little Head Space

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Of the training boards on the market, Metolius consistently makes the best training boards out there. Their line of training boards is by far better than all others. I picked up this training board because it is not at 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 for days! You can hang on these forever and bust out pull ups for as long as you'd like.

      These are a tad harder than the middle sloper and smaller width wise. I prefer doing dead hangs or pull ups on these.

      Middle Sloper:
      This is the easiest sloper on the board. Since it is one big sloper, it is great for offset pull ups or working through a sequence from the middle out.

      The number of crimps across the board is great.I like that I can do sequences across the 2-finger, 3-finger and 4-finger crimps. Some are deep enough that they feel more like pulling on an edge/ledge.

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

      There is gentle curvature to this training board which is great as you're working through training sequences across the board.

      I like the texture far more than any of the SoIll or Trango training boards I've tried. Those are greasy, slick and just not pleasant in my opinion. The cavities on the surface fill with chalk and that is what makes them greasy and slick. Instead of a negative texture, the Metolius boards have a positive texture which I prefer for training boards.

      It is a heavier training board because of the material. It is not hollow backed but that is alright because you put it up once and that is it. No remounting required like other climbing holds, etc.

      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.

      Shoot me an email anytime you have questions about this training board or any other gear!

      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!

      Almost Perfect

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I needed a hangboard that isn't too hard to start and small enough so my other fingers don't smash against the board will hanging. This board is perfect for that. It has a wide range of holds from 2 finger to 4 and sloppers as well. They have deep enough pockets for beginners and smaller ones for more of a challenge. I would recommend only one thing and that is that they should also install a hold for pinches at this size so fingers don't get smashed again. Then it would be perfect. Other then that I love using it and use it anytime I have a chance.

      Easy 5 Stars here...

      The Metolius project board is awesome!

      On the Metolius website you can find a hang-board workout for everything; from the beginner climber struggling with a pull up, to a professional athlete, Metolius has you covered with ease.

      I started hang-board routines on this a month ago and instantly started seeing results. The project board is easy to mount, sturdy and dependable. It's a fun and fast way to bring your climbing to the next level and I would venture to say the hang-board is stylish as well, thus being a nice addition to home walls or simply a nice way to work out within a door frame of your apartment. Easy!

      In ten minutes every other day, my contact strength has doubled and I'm getting better at advancing hang-board routines as well. To stave off injury and progress, there's no other way that is as effective in my opinion. For the size and price, if you take climbing seriously, get one!

      Warning, very addicting!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I use my hang board every day without exception. Building strength without even thinking about it. Becoming a stronger climber. These are all things we could use.

      I highly recommend this quality product.

      OH! One more thing, its quick and easy install is great.

      Awesome for ice climbers too!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have used it to improve my contact strength for gym climbing, but have found that it's great with ice tools - I use the deep two-finger pockets for my picks and can do squat-stand exercises or even pull ups on my tools.

      When Price or Space are the key factors

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I would like to have something fresh or original to add to the chorus of reviews but it seems like others share the same criteria for their training purchases. Yes, this Project board is compact and offers a variety holds, so whether this collects climbing chalk or dust is up to you. I have been using this in conjunction with other holds at home several days a week for a couple months and I've improved 2 grades bouldering and from 5.8/9 to 5.10+/11- (top rope/lead) rope climbing in the gym in those two months. If you are willing to get a few calluses and achy muscles then your climbing will certainly improve with this board. There are various exercises that are thoroughly explained in the included instructions flier and there are no shortage of routines easily found online. This product will certainly deliver variety, not take up much space for a really sensible price, and the hardware (screws) is included.

      Best Answer

      While metolius products can be shipped internationally, 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 debating between this one and the So iLL Blister Board. Does anyone have a recommendation?
