The Training Area
Train your weakness
Is there an area of your climbing you would like to improve? Our training area has been specifically designed with a variety of functions, to enable you to isolate and train different weaknesses that might be holding your climbing back. The Training Area is ideal for those lonely sessions when your climbing partner can’t make it, as you can still get a good pump going, on your own!
Basically there are no excuses. Train hard, Climb hard, Climb More.
Similar in concept to the original "Woody" training walls, our training board is just a massive wall of rubbish holds! Make your own problems up and set long term projects, this is a wall for the serious climber, wanting to get seriously strong. We can not be held responsible for the state of your finger tendons by the end of a session - have fun!
Endurance wall – Develop your anaerobic endurance and stamina on our 45+ move circuits. There are 2 circuits to chose from, (one easy one hard) both get progressively harder. It is an excellent training method for improving your overall climbing performance regardless of whether you are a hardened boulderer or traditional climber.
Campus board – Designed to improve explosive power and contract strength in the fingers and arms. A good supplement to a work out once you have gained a solid foundation of straight through bouldering and routes. We recommend you should be pretty comfortable on 6B before you try the Campus board out.
Systems Board – Isolate a particular grip or body position and train it in a systematic way to allow symmetrical gains on both hands. Design a work out to improve contact strength, lock-off strength, wrist strength, finger strength, and core stability. The walls here can provide an excellent workout for any number of primary climbing muscles; such as the shoulders by performing a shoulder presses, or biceps by emphasising the deep lock-off on undercuts.
Finger boards – What training area would be complete without a legendary 'beastmaker' finger board?! We have both sizes, plus the enormous Fender from Beacon, as well as both open and closed hand pull up bars.

Rock Rings – similar to the Gymnastic Rings, they are ideal for training body tension and core strength as well as contact strength and general upper body strength. There suspension allows them to move freely thus relieving the stress on your joints and reducing your susceptibility to injury.
These are also available from our online shop, they're great for training if your are on the road a lot. Check them out here
