Moon Board

Posted on 20. May, 2011 by in News

While this seems off the subject of the great debate that has ensued about Endovalley, climbing is far more multifaceted than one small cluster of boulders in a National Park. I was thrilled to see Ben Moon post up the Moon Board online. Now anyone can replicate the problems anywhere in the world. Right now there are only 3 problems listed at 8A and nothing harder, but hopefully he will put up more as time passes.

I would also like to thank everyone who follows along here. Many of you have responded with thoughtful and interesting comments and I appreciate that you do so. I would encourage people who comment to leave out the personal attacks and name calling. Your points will be far more seriously taken. Anyways, have a great weekend everyone!

    We have one at the gym and it is awesome to say the least. I think the hardest problem on the school room is 8b if I remember correctly. But anyway even their warm up (6a) are relatively hard for 6a.

    From the ABOUT:

    “Bored: “a fit of ennui or sulks; a tiresome or uncongenial feeling”

    Board; “a piece of timber sawn thin, usually rectangular and of greater length than breadth”

    I was seriously considering building a Moon Board. I love the concept, but it seemed as if the problems were never updated. Without a constant stream of updated, standardized problems, I don’t see any point in building one or buying the holds.
