Planning Considerations


The following planning considerations apply:

  • Climbing bars provide adequate space and facilitate better command and control than traditional pull-up bars.
  • Traditional pull-up bars are too narrow to safely and efficiently conduct the CLs.
  • Use of multiple climbing bar “pods,” as shown in Figure B-4, allow for efficient mass training.
  • The CLs require one bar for every three Soldiers when performed as a single activity.
  • Total ground surface area for four pods is only 625 square feet.
  • Four pods will accommodate 16 stations of 3 Soldiers per station for a total of 48 Soldiers.
  • Additional freestanding pods should be constructed to accommodate more Soldiers.
