Mixed Climbing Training

I really like mixed climbing. It's tremendously fun. But it's also tremendously pumpy. Clearly to do it well, you should train a lot.  And while I haven't built any special training walls or anything yet, I certainly love seeing what other people have built to train for this particularly odd type of climbing...

In the following video, a farmworker without easy access to the mountains demos several of his training contraptions while talking about mixed climbing.

I saw an ad for these Dry Ice Tools recently. I wonder if they would be an effective training tool.

Great find Jason. Love seeing this type of stuff!!! The stuff climbers can pull mixed is pretty damn impressive.
