Today’s invention is intended to support advanced rock climbing training.

Handholds on a climbing wall can each be inverted about a horizontal central axis so that they can’t be gripped.

This could be achieved by driving the rotation of each handhold from a central control room before ascent begins -perhaps making the available ones sparser as an individual climber’s skill increases.

This means that any wall can be made more challenging and variable from day to day.
