What is the MoonBoard?

The MoonBoard is a simple flat panelled climbing wall 2.44m wide by 3.15m high, angled at 40 degrees and set with a selection of user-friendly holds consisting of crimps, pinches, slopers and pockets. This type of training board is the most effective strength training tool for climbing.

For many years our customers have reaped the benefit of our MoonBoard system and there are now hundreds of MoonBoards all over the world both in private and commercial facilities.

The MoonBoard concept is simple. It is a standardized training board easily built by the user to a standard specification (height, width, angle and t-nut grid). All MoonBoard holds are numbered and have a clear compass direction indicator. These MoonBoard holds and the standardized training board allows users all over the world to climb and train on the same problems as each other.

This MoonBoard system is supported by our website www.moonboard.com and our new free MoonBoard App. The MoonBoard website and App allows MoonBoard users to view and download the current hold set up (hold position and orientation) and a list of MoonBoard problems which have been set by users all over the world. The user is also able to add new problems and sort existing problems by grade (user grade and route setter grade), route setter, user rating, newest, oldest, easiest and hardest.

What is the LED MoonBoard?
The MoonBoard LED system brings easy identification of problems to the MoonBoard. Beneath each MoonBoard t-nut position is an LED light, which is controlled by our MoonBoard App. When the user selects a problem on the App, the holds that make up that problem are illuminated by their corresponding LED lights.

Our new LED system gives users access to 1000s of MoonBoard problems in just a click and a swipe, making the MoonBoard training facility even more user-friendly and accessible than ever before.
