Metolius Hangboard Review

metolius hangboard reviewThe Metolius Project Training Board features an assortment of climbing holds to help you increase strength and improve your climbing performance.

Holds (pockets and crimps, jugs, slopers) are arranged along a broad arc that tapers outward and downward for an ergonomic shape aimed at preventing injuries.

The Metolius hangboard tapers from top to bottom to provide clearance for your forearms and elbows when pulling on the upper holds.

Fine texture gives you just the right amount of grip. Includes complete instructions, a training guide and mounting hardware (long wood screws). Comes in assorted colors.

Metolius Hangboard Review by Brad – Project Training Board:
I saw this hang board at a local climbing gym and gave it a try out. I was impressed by how well the board fit my hands in terms of comforability and texture. So i picked up one for the garage gym and tried it out. Easy to hang as I just screwed it into a piece of 3/4 inch plywood and mounted it on the beams of the garage. No problem hanging on it (I weigh about 165 lbs) even with a weight belt.

This board is about the right size – not too big and not too small. Yes; you can buy much larger boards with more holds but then you have to make sure you have a place to put it. I would rather have a mid size board and add on holds outside of that to make it more modular.


I try to wash my hands off before I use it so that I dont mank it up with my sweat, excess skin and chalk. It got a little caked up with chalk which I brushed off with a wire brush and then put it in dishwasher which worked out great.
