Climbing digital editor Kevin Corrigan’s best pandemic training purchase was the garage bouldering wall on the left. His second best pandemic training purchases were the campus rung and Tension Block he combined with some cord, a pulley, and a bag full of weights to create a makeshift cable machine so he could still train after he strained his tricep on the bouldering wall. The Tension Block allows for finger training, while the repurposed campus rung serves as a bar for lat pulldowns and rows.Kelly Corrigan
