    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.
    • Deluxe hangboard made of wood for skin-friendly climbing training
    • Large assortment of jugs, slopers, edges, and pockets

    Beautiful and functional

      Gave this as a Christmas present to a friend. He said it mounted easily over a door. He likes the different finger holds and can do "little practices" throughout the day as he's walking around the house. I saw it after he put it up and just thought it looked good. Hope he gets a lot of use out of it

      Beautiful, Yet Functional

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Excellent fingerboard! Does not destroy your fingers and has all the pockets you could need. This hangboard is mounted in our living room and looks very ascetically pleasing.

      Strong fingers, strong mind

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      I gave this to my mega cool super strong sister! She is a great climber already, but wanted an extra little way to improve her performance on the wall. She is excited to use the different sized holes, and different spaces to improve her form while climbing big walls.

      Very Efficient Hangboard

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This hangboard has everything you need to maintain finger strength through the winter or when you cannot get to the gym or crag. I wanted to switch to the wood version, and have been super happy with the purchase. It is a little easier on the fingers if you are training quite a bit throughout the week on top of climbing as well. This paired with my gymnastic rings have been the best training setup I've had so far.

      Feel good

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I've enjoyed training on this hang board. The wood is smooth so I can train until my forearms burn out, not until the skin on my hands is burning too much, which usually happens for me first. I'm happy with the variety of the holds.

      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!


      • 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.

        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 ...

          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.

            Unanswered Question

            What kind of wood is it made of? Is this a common wood for fingerboards?

            Is it ok to use chalk on this board? I'm...

            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.

            Wood Grips vs Simulator 3D? I'm new to...

            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!

            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.

            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.
