Wooden mixed climbing and dry tooling specialist training aid for getting strong for the ice season; manufactured in the UK.
Figfour Training Aid
No more feeling unfit as soon as it’s ice climbing season (well… no more excuses anyway). Figfour is an award winning specialized training aid for mixed climbing and dry tooling.
Figfour lets you accurately replicate the actions of mixed climbing on indoor walls without damaging resin holds or base panels.
Designed to get you pumped and get you strong, Figfour is far from being the soft option. So the handles are unlike the large trigger grips and do not accurately reflect your ice axing standard.
The Figfour ergonomic shafts are precision CNC tooled from birch plywood, which cause minimal damage to your hands so that you can train for longer.
The replaceable grippy rubber loops are held in position by aluminum fixings.
Lanyard fixing points are machined into shaft’s base.

Some say Alpkit have unlocked the secret to removing all traces of “Puny Human” from the body.
They are brilliant. Not just an excellent training tool, but they are also great fun.
The lack of a textured grip really works your finger strength, body position and movement control. They generate massive levels of pump, which results in rapid development.
They do practically no damage to resin holds, unlike axes. Generally they are welcomed by most, in fact the majority of walls I’ve used them at, end up wanting to borrow them.
They are insanely cheaper than a set of axes and draw less attention in the street.
The only downside; you can’t claim to be Lara Croft.
