Once the crags and gyms began to close at the beginning of the pandemic, it didn’t take climbers long to figure out how to get their climbing on at home. Being stuck in the house just meant that climbers needed to get a little more creative in the pursuit of getting stronger. As such, “quarantraining” was born.
For some, quarantraining was taken quite seriously. But if you hopped on social media at any time during this pandemic, I’m sure you noticed that a few climbers decided to have a little fun with it.
Let’s check out the top 5 most interesting ways that climbers trained at home during quarantine:
1. Ever looked at your house and thought, I can sport climb that!
2. Need to keep working on that chimney climbing?
3. This looks great for keeping that crimp game strong.
4. Kitchen traversing was a thing. I wonder how many cabinets were hurt in the process?
5. Lastly, the wildly popular table challenge. We hear the mantle is the crux.
If you got creative during quarantine, we would love to see it! Tag #rockstarvolumes on IG or Facebook. Who knows…someone who got really creative might just become the proud owner of a free Rockstar Volumes tee-shirt.
