Climbing wall- finished
After another weekend of cutting, drilling, and hammering, our home climbing wall is finished. Our friend James loaned us some of the specialized equipment and materials, as well as a bunch of the holds, which was a huge help. Thanks heaps James!
The main bit is a 30 degree overhanging wall, 2.4 x 2.4m. A 30 degree overhang is pretty steep, which keeps the climbing hard and interesting. Here it is in perspective:
We added a ~1m roof on top, mostly because it was easy to do with the framing all ready in place. Carrie and I are relatively weak at climbing roofs, so this will give good practice.
|Carrie, drilling holes. Each sheet of plywood needed ~100. The holes|
really needed to be straight, so we used a drill guide.

|Carrie is looking good, but that crash pad is looking a bit small. Hmm.|
