We have been making wooden holds for walls for over a decade now and have made hold sets for all the major angles of training board. When we make a full board we need to get information from the customer as follows.
Angle: E.G. 45˚
rough grade range: E.G. font 6C (V4) to font 7B+ (V9)
any specific style: E.G. Circuits, really burly, really crimpy.
Please do answer the above and leave it in the order notes/comments when you order. That way we can choose the hold types most suited to those angles and the desired difficulty.
We take pride in making boards which are unique to the customers needs. We appreciate that some climbers may wish to have their own unique set up to cater for their specific goals, weaknesses and rock types, sometimes it's nice just to know you have your own board that is perfect for you.
Symmetrical boards: These are a fantastic mix of the systems approach to training, yet with enough creativity to stop it feeling like work. Our symmetrical boards offer a varied mix of hold styles to try and pump the board full of mirrored variety. It is up to you whether you want it to be feet follow or whether to use footholds, you can easily do both if the board is for home use.
Non Symmetrical boards: These have a slightly higher creativity value and uniqueness of movement thanks to 50% more of the holds being unique than the symmetrical boards. You lose the ability to make a mirror image of the problem but if a good feet follow non symmetrical board is made they can be great for bizarre hold combinations and flowing moves.
Wood treated with respect and used for its natural training benefits. Ergonomics and hold types selected from the cutting edge right back to help those just entering the sport to see a progression path.
