Por­ta­ble hang­board]

Climbing - - GEAR TESTED -


“Now there’s no ex­cuse not to train,” one tester said after us­ing this hang­board in ho­tels on work trips, at pop­u­lar Cal­i­for­nia crags, and at home over the hol­i­days. Two sides pro­vide large edges, pock­ets (1-, 2-, and 3-fin­ger), small edges, and pull-up han­dles. The hanging sys­tem al­lows for two po­si­tions to make it harder or eas­ier, and at about 2 lbs. and 13” by 8”, the board fits in a back­pack—great for warm­ing up at the crag. Said a tester: “Bring a biner and sling, and you can hang it any­where; it’s rev­o­lu­tion­ized my fin­ger-strength train­ing be­cause I can fi­nally stick to a rou­tine.” $150 AUD (about $112 US); awe­some­woodys.com
