Today we feature Skillzboard.

Skillzboard is a portable, modular plywood device that allows you to teach and/or practice a number of roped-climbing techniques, from anchor building and cleaning, to rappel methods, rescue techniques and big-wall tricks. You can set it up outside or inside, and it’s been tested to safely hold bodyweight. And you can clip your phone to it and watch an instructional video while you practice!
