How strong Are you?

The Climbing Hangar
17th September

What are we doing?

On the 17th September we will be setting up the fingerboard and testing all comers.  We will be testing your finger strength by measuring how hard you can pull down on a 20mm edge.

How will the results be presented or used?

During the testing day the results will be presented in the following ways:

  • A leader board of the strongest people both relative to weight and in absolute terms.

  • Average strength for each Hangar colour circuit and Kilter board grade. Male, Female, and All; as well as body-weight relative and absolute.

If you choose to enter outdoor sport climbing or bouldering grades we may keep your results for use in out global data set.

Who can do the test?

Anyone can do the test as long as they sign the waiver.

Are there any risks?

All maximum strength exercises and testing have some element of risk. Make sure you warm up fully and do not have any ongoing injuries that might be exacerbated by testing.

Body weight measurement or not?

Measuring and entering your body weight is totally optional. Under-18s will not have body weight measured.
