With the local climbing centres putting the word out for winter comps, I’m going to have to hit the board hard and fast. I’ve been shredding the calluses off my hand for the past few weeks courtesy of the Beastmaker board in the GCC.
Winter is a busy time for me these days so I’m utilising my finger board and hold more and more to squeeze every ounce out of my training each day. In the quest of searching new gizmos to help you get to the next level, I have discovered the Blank Slate.
The Blank Slate from the company of the same name allows for the set up of a small campus board system hanging from your door frame. The board can accommodate a selection of up to 17 holds including a finger board, giving you a good variety for your daily routine. The base unit features quality treated birch wood, powder coated steel frame and comes in 90o and 105o versions to suit your preferred style.
The Blank Slate locks onto your door frame with no need for bolts or fixings, this is the Ideal home workout device for those renting or staying hotels as it doesn’t require being permanently attached to the walls.
As if this wasn’t enough the Blank Slate can also hold a smart phone or small media device so you can watch TV, listen to music or chat while you work out.
This is truly a revolution in climbing training equipment and if the Blank Slate itself wasn’t enough. Blank Slate also provide a wide selection of holds and hangboards that can be used with the Blank Slate board system. More information on the Blank Slate and its availability can be found at the Blank Slate website.
