/ Placing climbing gear in an artificial environment.
Is there anything out there for gear placing practice or something similar?
I know The Edge in Sheffield had a wall that was set up for placing trad gear. Not been there for a while though, so I have no idea if it is still there.
there's some walls that have bits you can place gear in, but don't know how you'd then control the temperature. You'll probably have to construct something simple in a room which you can control temp in...which will be easier than constructing temp regulation around something to place gear in!
Smash a couple of paving slabs up then glue/screw them to a sheet of plywood. Have your participants place gear in it.
