So after watching that amazing home bouldering video, I have become somewhat inspired. My question today is this:
Is there any way to train at home/practice techniques for climbing if you cannot access a gym?
I live in a dorm residence, and the closest climbing gym is still about an hour bike ride away (I don't have a car). And even if my busy student schedule allows time to go to the gym, it is usually only once a month that I can make it. After watching that home bouldering video a couple of my friends and I have been trying to boulder in our dorms, without great success, but hey, its fun
Something I always used to do, when I had two bunk beds, was trying to swing from one to the other.
You have two bunk beds about a meter apart, running parallel, and then you start, hanging horizontal from the top bed of one and swing to the other. It was always a blast and still pretty tiring if you do it 10 times.
And as far as technique goes Im really out of ideas... I've kind of practiced crimping on door frames which is decent. I guess I'm just really really bored and wanting to climb, though my schedule doesn't offer the much time to get out, even to the gym.
