Kawika,

I think you've gotten great advice so far. I've done a fair amount of campusing (almost exclusively on pretty big holds) and have gotten good results with it. It's a great way to build power and it's easy to stay challenged by trying to skip ever more rungs.

All that said, there are a number of downsides--not the least of which is finding a good campus board. The main thing is that it's REALLY easy to overdo it--especially if you haven't been climbing much. If you do find a campus board you can use, build up slowly. It's easy to wreck a finger or elbow and put yourself on the shelf for a month if you aren't prudent.
