/ Interest in a home climbing wall.
Ive got some crimps/mini jugs for sale if you decide to mate. They are spares from
my wall which I think was well worth building if you have the
time to train. Also great fun making it i found!
I've used a wall very good wall in a shed more like 10ft x 4ft, if you're creative you'll make it work.
How tall is it and does the door swing encroach on the footprint area you've given?
yeah, ive seen some people just put up a 45degree wallin their garaage and changed the hold around every week or so. I think with a whole room you could board the walls up as the plaster will be pointless and then have a great little bouldering setup with some great 'traverses'.
Depends on the height of the room, but I think you would probably get more out of a good hangboard.
My garage wall is 10ft wide and about 10ft high (angled at 30 degs) and it's only just big enough to do 'problems'. Crucially though, there is enough space in my garage to swing around and fall off without risk of hitting a wall.
A friend has a smaller wall and he is restricted to repeating small circuits with defined hand movements. But it's all about motivation - despite having a smaller wall, I think he uses his more than I use mine!
