Remark or addition


  • This is a game that can be used to train strength or anaerobic endurance depending on what type of holds are used. The climber can only use the hand holds that are pointed out by another person behind them. The use of a stick lets you point out holds that are out of reach.
  • This is good training for the pointer person as well as the climber at it forces them to to visualize moves.

Points of attention

  • When pointing out hand holds try and have the next couple of holds in mind so the climber is not forced to hold on while you work out which hold to point out next.
  • For anaerobic endurance training try to point out holds that allow the climber to hold on for around 20-25 moves. For strength training set holds that allow the climber the hold on for only 8-12 moves.
