The MoonBoard is a standardised interactive training wall that connects a global community of climbers through shared problems and competitive performance rankings.

A MoonBoard can be built at an angle of either 25° or 40°, according to the user's preferred difficulty. Some users even have multiple MoonBoards to give them access to a choice of hold setups. When a user chooses the hold setup they'd like to feature on their MoonBoard, this hold setup is installed to match an exact specification. Each climbing hold is set at a specific location and orientation on the board, creating an identical setup to other MoonBoards around the world. This standardised system allows users to climb on the exact same problems as their friends and heroes, regardless of their location.

The MoonBoard’s powerful smartphone app and LED integration provides an intuitive and interactive climbing experience. Users can instantly browse, filter, select and illuminate problems on the MoonBoard through just the swipe of a finger. Each user’s personal MoonBoard logbook provides a detailed overview of completed ascents, problem ratings and global ranking.

Never before has the world of indoor climbing training been so connected. We invite you to join the MoonBoard movement...

MoonBoard Origins

Anyone familiar with indoor climbing history will no doubt be aware of Sheffield's fabled School Room. Originally founded in the 1990's, the School Room became the hardcore indoor training hub for some of Britain's most talented climbers including Ben Moon, Stuart Cameron, Jerry Moffat and Malcolm Smith. The wooden boards that occupied the space became legends in their own right, sporting problems up to F8b (V13). Many of these climbs remained unrepeated for several years!

In 2005, Ben Moon developed a standardised wooden training board that would take the School Room concept one step futher. Set at 40° with a specially designed set of resin holds, the MoonBoard captured the essence of board climbing in a compact and replicable format. Since these humble beginnings in Sheffield, the MoonBoard has become a global favourite, gracing home gyms and commercial climbing walls around the world.
