Build your own indoor climbing wall

by Tom Markiewicz on February 7, 2005

Whenever the weather stays cold (hmm, like now, in February), I feel like a mad genius scheming plans to build a climbing wall somewhere in my home. In my mind, I’ve developed plans for an attic wall, a free standing bouldering cave in a spare bedroom, a bouldering cave suspended in the basement laundry room, and the list goes on. Obviously, some of these ideas are outrageous to say the least. But they always seem like a good idea. Luckily, I have a climbing gym ten minutes from my house. So, whenever madness strikes, I just hit the gym. I know, its a nice luxury that the majority of climbers don’t have.

That said, I may still build a home wall just because it looks like great fun and can only help my climbing. I’ve seen numerous sites that show step-by-step how to build a climbing wall. Here are some of the best:
