When did you build your wall?
I built my wall over the last two weeks.
How long did it take you to build?
I built myself over the period of about 6 days.
Not including holds and padding, how much did it cost you to build?
Around $600. Holds are on order so that will double the price, and I have foam and poly resin to start molding my own as well.
Did anything in particular inspire your wall design?
Just my love of overhanging walls!
What was the most difficult aspect of the design and build?
The vertical section between the two main walls as it was a bunch of odd angled cuts.
What would you do differently?
Maybe make it larger?
What is your favorite aspect?
While the footprint is only 8′ x 12′ there is a lot of climbable space giving tons of options.
Any words of wisdom to aspiring homewallers?
Design IN scale, makes transferring idea to wood easier. Make all your plywood cuts first. Paint all plywood and install all T-nuts before hanging your ply, makes it much much easier.
Do you have any connection to climbing brands or gyms?
}Only ones I like, nothing affiliated.
