New fingerboard

Not really bouldering ireland related but anyway. Finished my new finger board, the patent is pending. Had to go with this approach rather than hang it from a pull up bar as the door lintels are weird. But I think this hanging design works well. Its stable, can be used on both sides, easily removable and is nice and high, in fact it would be possible to make a short campus board in this style. In the second phase I'm going to put more holds - slopey rungs of various degrees - on the back side but I want to get an idea for what works first.


  1. Is there any movement in it? Is it fixed above?

  2. Not fixed, it just sits on the rafters. There is a small bit of movement and I had planned to double the width of the cross pieces at the top but I don't think I will bother, probably would need to if one was planning to campus about on it.
