The Moon Fingerboard is a popular fingerboard, but be aware of the high level of ability required to get the most from this board. The largest holds are on the top and these are not much more than a finger pad deep and only the slightest bit incut, the pockets are curved and increase the difficulty. Then you have the crimps…
One of the defining features on the Moon Fingerboard are the full crimps. There is mixed opinion to whether training full crimped is good or bad, one thing for certain is that you can’t always ignore them when climbing outside, so it is good to see a fingerboard with the option to train them. These crimps are small, even the largest full crimps are less than half a finger pad deep. The other full crimps are noticeably smaller than that.
The fingerboard is average in width and not very tall, so good for those with little space. They have a hollowed out back to keep the weight down. The texture is very consistent and is quite smooth.

If you have already developed a good base of finger strength then this board can push the boundaries even further than most other fingerboards. For a similar design philosophy but easier on the fingers, have a look at the Moon Phat Boy.
