Designed with skin preservation in mind, Circuit Tape is a breathable, cohesive tape that sticks to itself rather than you, so it works perfectly for chalky, sweaty sessions and won’t leave your skin soft and damp.
Stays put on chalky, sweaty hands. Perspiration does not reduce the cohesive bond.
Pre-tape to save skin, and it’s breathable so it won’t soften your tips.
Each roll is precut to 1/2” wide and contains 10 yds of tape.
Perfect size for carrying on route.
Comes in a reusable container to keep it clean.

FINGER CARE KIT
Healthy fingers are priority #1 if you want to climb your best.
Combining several tools that are must-haves for finger and forearm care, our Finger Care Kit is conveniently packaged in a Power Company logo linen bag so that you can easily take it with you whether you’re headed to the crag or the gym.
One Myofascial Release Ball. Smaller than a lacrosse ball to allow you to dig into your forearms better. Roughly the size of a golf ball.
One Finger Extensor Trainer.
Two Finger Acupressure Rings.
Two Finger Sized Voodoo Floss Bands.
Not totally sure how to use all these tools? Check out the video above!
Today's guest needs absolutely no introduction, but I'm honored to introduce her anyway. She is famed Spanish researcher, coach and climber Eva Lopez.
We live in an age of fast food bouldering. Gym boulders are turned over more frequently than ever before. Hop on the Moonboard and you can try 2,500 different v7’s before you have to move on to v8.
Ayo Sopeju is a competitive climber, head setter at The Minneapolis Bouldering Project, and an artist who takes the utmost care with his work.
Adam Ondra’s commentary on his legendary onsight, along with thoughts from a coach’s perspective.
This past October in Minneapolis I had the opportunity to sit down and chat with one of the most exciting comp climbers to watch - recent Pan American Combined Champion Kyra Condie.
We all create some sort of mythology around certain routes or grades - a mythology that often says "you don't belong on this route!"
It’s been a wonderful pump-free five years, but that time has come to an end.
As I switch back to sport climbing as my primary focus, I feel like this is a good time to reflect on and share some lessons I’ve learned over the past few years and talk on some things I’m having to relearn.
It's no secret that skills deteriorate with fatigue, particularly a complicated, high skill sport like climbing.
Let’s face it. All of us who are trying hard to push ourselves will eventually be injured.
For this Board Meeting, Nate and I sit down with our good friend Dru Mack to discuss something that we are all far too well versed in: The 5 most common redpoint pitfalls that we see climbers get trapped in.
If you're a coach, this is a must listen to episode. In fact, if you're a climber who wants to learn to climb better, it's a must listen.
With all the information out there on training, rehabbing, and performance, it’s tough to know where to start when you’re injured. Dr. Jared Vagy developed a system that makes that process much simpler, and lays out a much clearer path to healing.
Joslynn Corredor is the definition of strength and courage.
It’s finally here. A simple, repeatable, and highly effective program designed to give you the best chance of building core strength that transfers to your projects.
Fame and authenticity don’t always go hand in hand. We’d love to believe that in climbing they always do, but that just isn’t the case.
Skin is your sending currency. Stop overpaying.
In this episode, Nate and I break from our recent Top 5 format, and sit down to have a discussion about how climbers are a product of their environment.
What good are core exercises if they don’t help your climbing? While normal exercises can go a long way towards making your core stronger, I’m a fan of using climbing drills to incorporate that strength core into your regular climbing.
When you are trying to do hard moves while climbing, the goal is to compensate, get into the most efficient body positions, and find the path of least resistance. With core exercises, we are looking for the opposite. You are trying to find the most challenging positions that you can execute while maintaining perfect form.
If you want to get stronger, you need to try hard. This is as true with your training as it is with your climbing. It doesn’t matter how good an exercise or a program is, if you aren’t putting in the correct effort then you won’t get the results you’re looking for.
Learning to breathe under tension can be a game changer for your climbing.
Finding useful core exercises for climbing can be tough. Some are so advanced that it’s hard to tell if you are getting anything out of them or if it’s just a circus trick with little carryover to performance.
Dru Mack has a list given to him by JStar that is a surefire way to develop into a better climber.
Today's episode is a question and answer session from our Performance Climbing Coach Seminar, recorded live in Columbia, MD.
Even though we can see that there are tangible benefits, few of us ever put in the time to improve our mental game.
My perception of what I was capable of, what could be possible, how hard I can push myself, the belief, the confidence, was all very much changed through a mere three weeks of training.
Don't get us wrong... we LOVE gyms. And if your only goal is to be as good as you can in your gym, then you can skip this episode.
We're flipping the script for our 100th episode. Nate takes over the host mic, and I do my best to let him lead the conversation.
I've heard Tonde Katiyo described as a ninja, a samurai, Buddha and Yoda, among other ethereal, higher level beings. Though Tonde is definitely a human, those descriptions aren't necessarily wrong.
