/ Free Standing Bouldering Wall
Looking to make a free-standing bouldering wall (I have no sutible walls to attach the frame to) anybody know how to go about making this (It will be overhanging aswell :) )
I have thought about doing this as well. (however the girlfriend says no)
What i was thinking is building a frame (wooden) within the the room, basically a cage.
then build your wall within this as normal, but attaching to the frame rather than room.
depending on the size it should be more than stable enough, however weight could be added to it, to stop any movement... sand bags in or on the base should do the trick.
depending on how funky you'd like to be, you could also build in a wall with changeable angle.. I'd do this with metal plates and steel cross bars, but you could achieve something similar using wood.however this could have to much play in it.
easy peasy, and be careful on the tendons
I'm intrigued - especially at that price (assuming that's without holds!)
Instead of e-mail, can you post images up here for all to see?
...Pretty easy to build. Unless you have really high ceilings it's probably worth making it steep, about 40-45 degrees, this will give you the best usage and training benefit.

I thought about buying one and storing it in my garage, but the garage is just too small :-(
> hI, i have made several boulderuing walls freestanding, they cost approx 120-150 to make and are brilliant, they can collapse down if not required
You're talking about a pair of Beastmakers, aren't you?!
