Moon Board at Miramont! Notes on our first session.

We installed a Moon Board this week at Miramont! Of all the woodies and system walls I've trained on this is the most effective finger and contact strength trainer that I know of.
We built the wall to the exact specs of Ben Moon's original School Room training wall along with the OG Holds, Hold Set Ups and OG Problems.  Our first session was quite funny actually with our entire crew only completing one 7A (V6) and a few 6Cs (V5)... Aaron Hagar came close on a 7C (V9) but it looks to remain a project for now... Awesome!  Our first sesh was burly, humbling, inspiring, and productive.  I can't wait to see how this effects my road to rehab and the overall strength of our crew... My guess is the Moon Board will be instrumental in our development.
For more info on Moon Boards go to  Ben and crew provide free info on exact construction specs, hold set-ups, problems, history, and training tips.  His site is a brilliant training resource!
Come down and visit our wall... right now we are training on hold set-up #1 of the original School Room holds (yellow holds).
