Kilter Board System

How to Use the Kilter Board

What is a Kilter Board?

With a Kilter Board and its light-up holds and adjustable pitch, you'll have access to well over 100k unique climbs contributed by people all over the global climbing community, from your average everyday gym-goers to professional, celebrity climbers.

Connect to the board with the Android or iOS app, set your climbing grade preferences, and search the catalog for a climb you want to train!

Your "problem" (what we call climbing paths in the discipline of bouldering) will be marked with LED-illuminated climbing holds that are color coordinated to denote starts and finishes, as well as which holds you can use for both hands and feet or those intended only as feet.

What do the colors of the lights mean?


Place your hands here to start. Don't reach for anything else until both feet are off the ground.

You are also allowed to step on these when necessary.


You may use these only for your feet.

You may also use shoe friction against the black surface of the board itself.


These may be used for your hands or for your feet.


These indicate the final hold(s) of the climb. Reach these using only the holds in the climb, per their rules, to complete the problem.

And of course, if a hold is not lit up, it's not to be used!

Please Be Courteous!

Please do not bring harnesses or chalk bags onto the Kilter Board mats.

Please do not sit on the Kilter Board mats.

Please allow climbers who wish to use adjacent Auto-Belay or Top Rope routes access and room to safely climb and belay.

When many people waiting for the Kilter Board, there is a limit of one attempt on your climb before returning to the end of the line.

Once you've setup the app, visit Profile > Settings and turn Auto-Disconnect on with a timeout of 20 seconds so that others can easily connect when its their turn without you needing to remember to disconnect.

DO NOT CHANGE/click the lightbulb for the route on the Kilter Board while someone else is climbing it.

We thank you for brushing your holds!

It keeps the climbs fresh and the lights vibrant.
