/ Climbing holds
Has anyone done this.....can give advice what to do ?. What holds,where from how to fix.?..etc. Or am I mad!!
Ok, it's going to cost more than a pack of wall bolts, but you get more flexibility and less questions when you come to sell etc.
You'll need to use M10 threaded inserts if you want to go straight into the brickwork. For holds any of the major brands will sell you a decent set or your local wall may let you have some second hand for a small fee. Some companies, like bleaustone for example, make specific training sets for training specific grip types so it really depends on what you're looking for.
I have just bought my daughter some climbing holds for christmas , i got her a pack of 10 mini jugs for about £30 i am going to mount them on a piece of 24mm ply ( with extra holes in for versatility) and then use heavy duty bolts to bolt that to the wall
that way i can have 30ish holes for arranging the holds but still only have 4 or 6 holes in my wall.
bought the holds from Mock Rock
Don't buy Mock Rock holds- they're rubbish. (Just my opinion mind you!)
