Pointer Climbing Game

by Samy

This is mostly a traversing game since it requires a partner to “point”. The person designated as the pointer will use a broom handle or any pole to point out the next hold.

The climber begins climbing. The pointer taps the next hold. This should be timed so the next hold is tapped just ahead of the person climbing. A good pointer makes it challenging but not beyond the climber’s ability.

The game ends when the climber falls. The climber and pointer then switch positions. This excellent practice for developing your on-sight ability.

Also, this game can be used to work on specifc rock climbing techniques such as the drop knee, heel hook, and others.

Use your imagination and try it on all kinds of walls.
