The Net Climber consists of a grid of nylon covered steel rope arranged in a vertical plane and stretched between two upright posts and an overhead pipe. The grid is designed to encourage both vertical climbing and horizontal shuffling. The rope size is smaller than typical metal rung climbers, consequently requiring more finger strength from the user. Because the grid is somewhat flexible, the user’s body will lean backward increasing the workout for the upper body including the biceps, shoulders, hips, thighs, and stomach muscles. This climber can be used simultaneously from either side of the grid and can be a stand alone event or connected to a deck as an access or egress climber.
