Lattice Board Assessments

White Angles

If you are serious about wanting to improve your climbing, you first need to know what areas you need to focus on. The Lattice Assessment will show where your strengths and weaknesses lay and what to best target to make gains going forward.

The Lattice Board is the original performance analysis method invented and developed by Tom Randall. The Assessment uses a long established testing methodology to measure the key aspects of your physical climbing performance.

An assessment lasts around 2 hours. During the session, you’ll be observed climbing and then asked to do a series of exercises. The session will be run by one of our trained assessors.

The session will measure:
• Maximal grip strength
• Aerobic capacity
• Anaerobic function
• Aerobic power
• Movement economy and climbing pace
• Climbing specific muscle function

Assessments are available to those comfortably redpointing F6c or bouldering V4/5 and upwards.
The cost of each assessments is £120.

Shortly after your assessment you will receive a full report. You’ll have a chance to discuss the results with your assessor. For those following training plans, we recommend a re-assessment every 6 months to help keep you on track.

Feedback from assessements

"My lattice assessment was a genuinely interesting insight into my strengths and weaknesses as a climber. To see a breakdown of your own abilities in such clear and stark terms is both useful and alarming. There is nowhere to hide so this helps to focus my training regime and to enable me to remain dedicated to my goals (even if they have been slightly re-adjusted...). Money well spent." Ky H
"The Lattice assessment with Paul was really useful and informative.  Paul produced a detailed and informative report which revealed some surprising issues with my climbing and really helped with thinking constructively about my strengths and weaknesses.  I still use the report now as a point of reference for planning my training." Ollie E
"I found the assessment really useful. It confirmed some of what I expected about my strengths and weaknesses but also provided some unexpected insights into my style. In general, I found the assessment great value for money, it has provided concrete information on my weaknesses and allowed me to target these and build from this." Mike S
