Climber Mill / Tread Wall


Bearing: Weight
Impact: Low



Face wall. Grasp hand holds above head and position feet on lower holds.


Climb wall by continuously grasping higher hand holds and positioning feet onto higher holds below.


Step down when finished. Apperatus shown uses body weight with sensors to move wall downward as participant climbs. Speeds of wall's descent can be preset but it also adjusts to partipant's speed. Turn of wheel changes angle of wall from easy slope to severe overhang. Although many more articulations are used in climbing, only most commonly used movements to raise body weight (eg: hip extension) or larger body segments (eg: hip flexion) are listed.
