The Simple-X Test

A free test designed to isolate, identify and provide you with data that will help you better understand your strengths & weaknesses so you can train smarter and ultimately climb harder!

The Simple-X test was developed to help collect data on a wide range of climbers from around the world, compare their results to see their strengths & weaknesses and how those contribute to their climbing successes. As more climbers complete the test, you’ll be able see how your results compare to other climbers within the same grade range as you, as well as climber in the next grade range. This can help you tailor your training to improve your weaknesses and ultimately, climb stronger!

 

The Simple-X test is based on 7 pillars that all play keys roles in our climbing – Finger Strength, Body Tension & Core Strength, Shoulder Stability, Pulling Power, Leg Strength & Stability, Flexibility & Cardio. Take the test now and see how you rate against other climbers!

About Climb 5.13

Through our own passion for climbing, training, and our desire to help others get stronger, we have designed the Simple - X Test. We developed the test to collect data on a wide range of climbers around the world and compare their results to see their strengths & weakness and how those contribute to their climbing successes. Currently the data study is in its early stages, however as it grows, we hope to be able to provide climbers with accurate results that highlight their strengths and weakness, which they can then use to train better and reach their goals.

Our Mission

Our mission is to get you climbing stronger! How? By collecting data from climbers around the world, analyzing that data and sharing it with you.
