Check out heavy rope workouts. The gym I go to has multiple thicknesses/weights. The idea is to oscillate the ropes creating waves running up and down the ropes without them hitting the ground. This exercise involves extended grip endurance, shoulder and core stabilization, and with the right intensity a decent aerobic component. It's different, it has some crossover to climbing, but nothing will hit that spot like climbing.
