Robert, that would be great - I've been thinking about making one in my spare time (what's that?) and having notes on pitfalls to avoid would be very helpful. Thank you!

Hi Robert, Kelly
The following was sent to me by a world renowned climber:
I just read about the fat grip rotating pull-up bar. try this: place
PVC sleeves of varying sizes over a standard pull-up bar depending on
what you want from the workout. The sleeves will rotate freely and
the different diameters of tube will "accommodate" all sizes of
hands. It's a terrible thing.
The other joint-wrenching tool you might hang in the new facility is
a "Bachar Ladder". A rope ladder strung under tension at a 45-degree
angle with 18" between rungs. One ascends the ladder without feet,
much like the rope climb. Skipping one gets you a three-foot stretch,
burly folks can dynamically throw for the 54" third rung. You can do
plyometrics on the thing as well, and overloading during the descent
as well. We all used to use them in the old days and many blew elbow
tendons as muscle developed more quickly than connective tissue and
some of lacked the discipline to descend slowly, in control. You can
use the rotating PVC trick on the rungs of this as well.
There is not a lot of training info for climbing on the web but I'll
look around. Too many climbers are interested in gear that they can
buy to make them better so they don't have to do the work. There are
plenty of gear forums .

If you're on the road, in a pinch slippery gloves (synthetic glove liners, for example) on a larger radius pipe has almost the same effect. The pipe can be rounded or square.
