Quick Setting Update – June 11 & 12th + Tuesday June 18th + New Treadwall!

Last week (June 11 & 12) we set the River and also reset the Treadwall. Today we reset the Left Dojo, and we’ll set more tomorrow.

The Treadwall has two things going on. First of all, Ian Powell has set some training problems, which are labeled “Powell Ladders”, and some other problems focused around doing big moves on a variety of holds. If you want to know more about how they work, feel free to ask Ian if you see him around. He has some different theories about training for climbing using the treadwall and we are excited to give him the opportunity to share those theories with Spot climbers. In addition, we will be posting some explanations near the treadwall in the near future.

Secondly, Lily and I set a bunch of routes. In the past we have set the treadwall with a left-to-right ascending difficulty, that is, all the problems start on jugs in a line and as you moved right across the wall the problems got harder and harder. Due to the needs of the summer camps, the desire of some customers to climb 2 climbers at a time on the treadwall, and other requests, we have tried something different this time. Now the difficulty level of climbs on the treadwall is more of a pyramid, that is, easier on both sides and harder in the middle. Remember, all treadwall problems can be adjusted for difficulty by changing the angle of the wall to steeper or slabbier, so try them out at different angles to see what is best for your training. Also, please feel free to leave treadwall feedback, or any other setting feedback, in the comment box at the gym.

Sorry I don’t have any new wall or treadwall pics. Should have some of the new Dojo tomorrow, and don’t forget we have most of our BRAND NEW FLOORING in, so come by and check that out if you haven’t yet. We think it’s pretty awesome and we think you will too!

The newest section of New Futurist Floor covers the Font and River boulders. Hueco and Dojo are the last parts of the gym and the floor for them is coming by mid-July!
