Yeah those boards at City Rock look really cool. Or get your craft on, whip out the router and get animal on some pine!

If you're serious contact Olaf De Wet on 084 51 50 857.

He hand designs wooden finger friendly hangboards that are better than the Beastmaker.

If you have access to regular climbing either indoors and outdoors I would personally say no, it wil probably leave you with chronic tendon overuse injuries. At this stage you will probably be fine with a pullup bar, and learning climbing movement by getting climbing on as wide a variety of rock and indoors as much asd possible.

Waaaay too soon for a fingerboard. You'll make massive, quick gains at this stage just by climbing more. Wait for the fingerboard until you're training for that crimpy 7c project one day.

You'll probably be better off with a few grips in the wall or a bouldering wall to traverse.

If you do get a hangboard, make sure you warm up well first, and just use the big jugs at the top. Going straight for the crimpers and injuring yourself won't help your climbing.

For normal pull up routines its a good idea to have a hangboard of sorts, or even dead hangs(with slightly bent elbows :thumleft: ) on slopers, but do stay away from the smaller crimps or 3 and 2 finger holds until you climb grade 25 comfortably - that advice given to me way back by Justin Hawkins, he was crushing HARD at that time!

Warm up and down regularly, stretch, and you'll be ok if you stay on the big stuff...

But nothing trains for climbing like climbing!

awê :mrgreen:

Stay away from fingerboards until you're climbing at least grade 25... Once you're confident on 25, then you can look into "advanced training" that is associated with fingerboards. You want to prevent yourself from getting injured, not invite injury at the beginning of your climbing career :D
