New to any hangboarding? Read our Hangboard training article or shop our hangboards below. Hangboards are useful for building finger strength when bouldering or rock climbing. They come in the standard full-sized hangboard, which is typically mounted on a frame or wall, and the portable hangboards that are very useful when travelling overseas or for warming up at the crag. Common hangboards seen in gyms include the Beastmaker and Metolius hangboards, while Tension and Lattice offer technical hangboards to supplement their finger training programs.
