The Bachar Ladder is a rope ladder used by rock climbers for training. The climber would climb the ladder using only their arms. Great for building upper body and campusing strength. The Bachar Ladder was named after John Bachar, a famous American climber best known for free soloing.
"The rope ladder has to be strung very tightly to be nice - not like in the Chouinard ad. I used to use a double pulley and jumar system to get that baby strung. 15 degrees overhanging is ideal." -John Bachar
