Pretty new to it; been spending about an hour a day at the local climbing gym at my school. Hope to do some more serious outdoor climbs in the next two years.

Strength training for rock climbing

Beyond doing mountains of pull-ups (see what I did there?) what are some other ways that you train in the gym for climbing?

I read this post recently that talked about using a rope ergometer (http://www.yourworkoutbook.com/strength-training-for-rock-climbing/) and was wondering if anyone else had tried something like this?

Welcome to our network,


I hope you find the time to look around our site, particularly the upcoming events and check out the FAQ page.

We've been up and running since 2009, you can find us on FaceBookYouTubeVimeo and Twitter.

The heart of our network are the Events. The events are very informal, just RSVP and turn up - it's a great way to meet other climbers. Of course you're free to post your own events and you don't need a partner to join in. As you can see we have been on a fair few Trips - read all about them in Trip-Logs section. 

For more information, I've created a read-me explaining a little more how the network operates.


Feel free to ask if you have any queries/doubts and I hope to see you at an event someday,
