Youth Team - Speed Holds
SPEED HOLDS AT CLIMB NASHVILLE
In order to expose our climbers to all aspects of competitive climbing the route setting team recently purchased and put up Speed Climbing Holds. Arranged in the same angle and at the same distance as regulation holds, these are used in competitive speed climbing, which we will be training climbers for in the future.
Speed climbing has been a discipline of competitive climbing for some time now and will be part of climbing's overall competitive representation in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. A detailed write-up on Speed Climbing and it's future within the climbing community can be found here.
We encourage our climbers to try out the Speed Holds (located on the central pillar, to the left of the arch) and let their coaches know if they’re interested in learning more!
