/ Climbing holds
Bleaustone have a nice range, I like the grit holds they do. Not got any myself, but are on my local wall:
Just to add to that, the ones I've used were interesting and very grippy, which did mean they absolutely ate your fingers :-)
I'm thinking more along the lines of actual 'famous holds'
Are you planning on a range of "Action Directe" themed finger destroyers? ;-)
Haha, not quite, but famous boulder problems would be a start.
Could be interesting although I'm not sure how they'd cope with traffic. A set of Brad Pit holds would need jet washing every 2 minutes if you stuck them in the average indoor wall, just because of the quantity of local traffic.
I'm sure if you installed a carbon copy of Deliverance at the Climbing Works you'd find the moves across the bottom became the crux after about half an hour :-)
A carbon copy of something like the whole Deliverance slab is entirely feasible but would be quite an undertaking( and taking the mould would piss off quite a few boulderers). But I do see where you're coming from.
a few companies have tried this. Its pointless, because you'd have to build a wall the same shape and size of the problem in order for the holds to be put in the right place
Here's a few 'famous' problems, black lung, Karma and midnight lighting.
Now google them and look at the shape of the wall you'd have to build.
