The Foot Mount is a core move in getting your weight lifted from the ground and onto the pole, much like the Basic Foot Hold. It is widely used to modify moves for an extra point of contact, or as a unique way to climb the pole.

How to Get into the Foot Mount

Move Steps

For a right-sided hold, your right foot would be positioned on top.

For a left-sided hold, your left foot would be positioned on bottom.

  1. Position your foot sideways.
  2. Press the arch of your foot firmly into the pole.
  3. To move in this hold, simply rotate your foot, maintaining firm pressure in the arch of your foot.

This move previously appeared in our Guide to Grips and Holds article.
