I won't be able to climb for a while looking for the best rock ring or alternative that is not a full hang board

To bad pullups have pretty much nothing to do with finger strength.

I like my metolius rock rings. also, thinking about getting some atomik bombs .

I've been hanging on them at the DBC for a little while now, and they're pretty great.

Neither.

Go down to the hardware store, in the door/window trim area of the lumberyard, find a nice strip of appropriate width with a smooth radius, screw it above a door frame. Voila, hangboard for $2.

If you want to get fancy, cut it in half and angle each side a bit off horizontal (i.e. a very slight, wide angled upside-down "V" shape), Still $2.

Wanna get really fancy, grab multiple strips of different widths, and create a ghetto Eva Lopez style hangboard. $3-$10.

Too many people want NEW, SHINY, STORE BOUGHT, shit.

Plus your advice makes sense, so no one is going to follow it.

I dunno, I just like supporting USA businesses that pump out well-made stuff that works. Atomik and Metolius are great examples of that.

Plus, actual climbing specific trainers are a lot more versatile and thus, yield more versatile results that are more applicable to a wide range of scenarios you'd encounter on the real thing than say, a wooden board.

But, bygones. I totally get the whole, frugality thing.

Have you met or seen Will S? The dude is fucking absolutely ripped and climbs like a MoFo. His advice is good enough for me.


EDITED:

But come to think of it, last time I was at his place, I didn't see any fucking sawed off half boards hanging above any doors, either.

Will, could you please address this issue? (LMAO!)

Haha, fair enough. I'm definitely not the example to live by. Not at all a hard man and do admit to be a bit excessive with the gear whoring.
