The Wide Boyz Crack Trainer with Soft Grip is a simple, lightweight, two piece adjustable crack system, for home use or training areas within climbing gyms. It can be used as a single unit for crack specific exercises and dialling in your technique or multiple units can be added together to do full boulder problems and circuits. The product comes in a flat packed style which is easily assembled and installed by the user. Soft Grip is provided with this product and can be installed within the assembly process, plus easily replaced at a later date if worn.

Using Soft Grip will provide a grippy and comfortable crack feel. This option is good for Endurance and Power Endurance work outs, as well as working on technique. For a more difficult jamming surface purchase without Soft Grip. See our “Crack Trainer” Product here.

A note from The Wide Boyz:

“We climb using both a Soft Grip and a wooden jamming surface. Having both options lets us tailor our training and climbing sessions to the intensity we want, enabling us to dial in our technique and get stronger quicker”



  • Use only with rock shoes
  • Practice and train with a mixture of Wide Boyz tape (or crack gloves) and bare hands.
  • Always stop using before hands and feet become sore
