|Sharing Woodie Problems Idea
I have been thinking of ways of getting motivated to use the woodie. I've been making a few holds out of wood, which is great. I was also thinking about sharing problems. Brad in Bendigo mentioned to be a while back about the MoonBoard - where you have to buy a set of holds, and then do the grid pattern they describe, and then they publish a list of numbers for problems... if you've got a woodie you probably know about this, or something similar.
Anyhow - I figured I'd try something similar, but different - Because I don't want to build the same one (coz I already have one), and the grids people drill are often similar anyhow. So, I have taken a picture of a section of my woodie, 2400x2400 - which is really common size I'm guessing - and I've marked and numbered the holds using MS Paint.
So, here it is. You can now make the same problem, relatively easily. You don't need the same holds as me - you can use your own holds! Just choose ones similar to the descriptions. Simple? I hope so - I hope it's something people can get their heads round.
If this motivates you to have a crack on your woodie that'll be really cool. If you get even more motivated, and want to share a favourite problem, that'd be even cooler!
I used simple guidelines to describe it. If you want to share - go for it! (don't worry if your woodie is a different shape or anything either) - also, if you have feedback that'd be awesome (maybe improve this pretty average problem). This is about motivation afterall.
Simple Guidelines I've used:
- Name (for future reference)
- Brief problem description.
- Describe each hold, and angle if not flat.
- Number of hands hold should accomodate & other hold info.
- Footholds (marked with crosses if small gibs)
So - here goes....
Description: Long move and a campus move at full extension, then a combination of hand movements trying to stay open on poor holds.
1. Slope pinch, 2 hands, heelhook
2. Rail crimp, 2 hands
3. Flat crimp, 45° angle, 1 hand
4. Desperate small slope/crimp, 1 hand
5. Open mono/crimp, 1 hand
6. Desperate small slope/crimp, 1 hand
Feet: 3 gibs + heelhook No.1
With Spring/summer coming on you want to get motivated for climbing on a woodie?
It's now happening outside man!
