I seem to remember that John Stannard had built a replica of Foops which he trained on before doing it. Also, he was gracious enough to allow other climbers to train on it.

Wolfgang Güllich trained on what is now known as a campus board for Action Directe

locally, Zander had a famous replica of The Narrows on Steck-Salathé formerly at Zanderland,
and Gary's offwidth was adjustable, we first set it to the Sacherer Cracker offwidth size.

didn't John Gill also train for The Thimble on a "machine"

There is a very good natural replica of the Narrows just west of Swan Slab. Once both legs are up, you have to climb down. The chimney above is closed off.

Crap! The last time I was up there cruising through that problem I never thought to bring a tape measure.

A friend replicated the Seperate Reality roof crack with 2x4's in his garage back in the 80's.. it was fun to do laps on. The skanky mattresses he used for crash pads were incentive enough not to fall.

In the movie The Dawn Wall you can see Tommy practicing the lunge move on a replicate he made on the side of a building. I wouldn't be surprised if Alex did the same

Yeah they did it here. Here is the boulder crux in the gym.

2019 folks...if you thought about it...it's been done!
