    I have recently begun my Lattice Remote Assessment and I’ve been impressed with the experience from the outset. I’m enjoying how easy the Lattice website and the Remote Assessment itself are to navigate.

    The clean asthetics make them simple to use. The websites detailed without being overwhelming and when I did have a question, the customer service team where knowledgeable and responsed faster than expected.

    I’m psyched to finally identify and work on my strengths an weaknesses, If first impression are anything to go by, my current goals don’t stand a chance.

    Awesome test if you’re relatively new to climbing and training for it. The test was very thorough and done in 3 separate sessions. I loved the level of detail in the results and that it shows pretty clearly what I lack.
    I was a little disappointed to write up everything about my climbing and training history only to receive an automated email that doesn’t take any of it into account.

    I found the assessment clear and super fun to complete (especially with freinds). It really highlighted my weaknesses and has given me a much better idea of what i need to train in order to progress towards my goals. Its also given me a lot more confidence on the wall as i have a much better idea of how much my fingers can take.

    10/10 would definitely do again in the future.

    This is a really nice assesment.
    I really felt i Came around everything, and received an easy understandable feedback.
    Even got a bit surprised, my fingers apparently hold me back from achieving my goal, together with my core.
    Now I know what to train 🙂

    Clear assessment. Helped me to support my existing assumptions in my weaknesses. Definitely seeing my finger strength holding me back, whereas I do good on higher grades when finger strength is not necessary.

    I use the feedback as reference frequenctly. And I think additional information should be clearly shown, such as what was my current weight at time of assessment. Also maybe a scale of what is considered good finger strength at my level and grades above.

    Also would be good to have some detail in the assessments performed. I.e what would a good max pullup reflect on climbing ability.
    And using assessment results, could identify areas where the climber may excell in, rather than only focusing on weakness.

    Very clear and accessible assessment. I would urge clearer guidance on how to interpret the data towards encouragement.

    I was shocked at how the results affected my mental state. I’ve been climbing for less than a year, a woman, 33 years old, 5’5”, 135lbs and am climbing V3 boulders at my gym. The results read that I’m extremely weak compared to other boulderers like myself. It was unclear if I was being compared to other boulderers of my gender, height/weight ration, etc or in general. I’ve been training pretty hard and really felt discouraged. Instead of keeping on climbing afterwards I went home.

    it’s my issue but so many people climbers definitely included that go through body dysmorphia etc and I felt like a huge whale with weak whisky fingers. I get that Lattice is known for its data driven work, but I’d love to think it combines that other approaches too.
    You could approach it like data is data, this is a strict numbers assessment, your emotions and mental game don’t matter. But we all know that’s not true.

    Would love any feedback or insight on this!

    Lots of gratitude!

      Hi Myriam, thank you so much for taking the time to offer your feedback. We have emailed you directly and eagerly await your response so we can chat about this more. Warmest regards, from the Lattice Training Team.

    The assessment was really clear and easy to follow, and the testing felt pretty thorough. Results came through straight away after submitting and give a useful profile of strengths and weaknesses, and is easy to understand. It’s useful to have a better understanding of areas of weakness so I can be more focused with training.

    I have completed two of these remote assessments now and I think they are really great! I have recommended them to quite a few of the people I climb with as a way to seek out weaknesses and work out areas to focus training on.
    They are pretty easy to follow with specifics on how to complete the exercises, amount of rest between exercises and amount of rest between sessions. I feel like the exercises give a thorough analysis of all the measurable physical aspects of climbing.
    The addition of looking at your metrics in relation to your goals is also pretty cool since you can see what you need to be aiming for.
    One thing that would be handy would be able to see some sort of slider like there is for finger strength metrics for some of the other tests such as core. So that you could see where your score is in relation to other people climbing a similar grade.
    I will definitely try and do one once a year.

    I found the remote assessment really easy to follow. I was able to do most of it at home and then I could easily input the data into the system.
    The results from the assessment came through quickly and my strengths and weaknesses were identified in relation to my current climbing. The report also made clear what I would then need to work on for my future goals going forward. Overall I found the assessment helpful and the report then focused my training for the winter.

    I was psyched to purchase this assessment to figure out where my current baseline is relative to my goals, as well as relative to my previous climbing baselines a few years ago. The testing protocol was very thorough with 3 separate testing sessions (for the V7+ option at least). For how much you have-to write up on your training history, current and past, as well as your current goals for the near future, hangboard history etc, it does feel very all encompassing. Although, after doing all that, I was bummed that after all this, when I completed the testing to receive an email within minutes of submitting it with an automated analysis. It did a good job of putting your testing metrics into graph formatting but this only compares it to your CURRENT climbing grade, NOT your goals. I felt sort of empty handed on direction of training relative to my goals, it didn’t give me any like insight into where I am in relation to my goals. Perhaps I am using this tool in the wrong way to direct my training. I just thought it would based on the details in the description “We will then analyse your data and provide you with an in depth, feedback report highlighting your strengths and weaknesses relative to your ambitions.” When it should read, relative to your current climbing grades. Hope this helps anyone who is interested in purchasing this test for similar reasons.

      Hi Aeron, I think this is a really good point and one that I’ve taken back to the team at Lattice immediately and we’ve rolled out a new release on how the assessment analysis works so now it will also include a “goal reference” as part of that package! It will now have a toggle where for the metrics which are most sensitive to small changes in grade (say 7a to 7b) then it will give you meaningful increments that you’re aiming for in terms of your training/metrics. This has all been built out internally now and we’re doing some in-house testing with it this week to double check all hits our standards and then roll it out in the next 2 weeks. Of course, we’ll drop you an email to let you know and this will also apply retroactively to your own assessment (including anyone who’s done an old assessment in the past will be able to see these new toggles). I hope that helps and also thanks SO much for the feedback. We really rely on you guys out there keeping us accountable to the best possible service we can be :-). Tom R
