In this post I would like to show a beastmaker backboard and training station that I build for a friend. I will tell some words about the construction, the climbing hold setup and the hangboard training app used on this board.
I started fingerboarding with my beastmaker Motherboard setup a few month ago and I didn't thought to be that weak. It took me three tries until I was able to complete the easiest workout Beasty 5a without any mistake. Afterwards I was motivated to go on with the second easiest workout Beasty 5b. I managed the 25° Sloper set and also the 3 Finger pocket 30 mm set, but both with mistakes. But the Deep 2-finger pocket 50 mm wasn't even possible after all.
Since two years now I am climbing on my home climbing wall. On the initial setup I left some space for more holds. Those free corners have been filled up in the last months.
A few weeks ago a friend visited me for a session on my adjustable home climbing wall. Not only for me, especially for my friends it is sometimes difficult to remember the hand and particularly the footholds of a certain route on my home climbing wall. Unfortunately my home climbing wall has no LED system. But my friend had an alternative idea.
Some weeks ago on the October 29th I joined a SmartBoard training in my local gym Magic Mountain by Jörg Helfrich. Result of the evaluation has been that my upper arms are too weak and I could improve my finger strength.
In the following post I want to present my adjustable home climbing wall. It may help other people by decision making, but it won't cover construction plans or similar. Everything just for boast.
A small tutorial to document my steps with FreeCAD to construct a simple wooden climbing foothold.
I still prefer LaTeX for presentations. There might be more comfortable software for presentations, but LaTeX is in my eyes the way to go for scientific data. The font selection is just pretty limited. The XeTeX project can help you to get TrueType fonts into your documents and presentations.
