/ Wanted: "lots of climbing holds"
I now need to buy a load of holds with a lot of variation in size and contact, especially as the right hand side is going to be a slab.
looking to spend around £200 to get myself started
Don't know where you live, but might be worth going to your local walls to see if they are getting rid of any old holds. This is how I kitted out my wall. The holds set me back about 50p each and are still going strong after 7 years, and since they were already 'worn in' they are nicely skin friendly.
Nice looking wall BTW.
I don't mean to be cheeky or negative, but some of the connections and member sizes on your wall look a bit skimpy. Personally, I'd be a bit wary pulling on something like that once the boarding and holds are on as these add a lot of extra weight. Just my tuppence worth.
Get yourself on ebay, I've seen sets of 50+ holds go on there (new) for less than £50. I'd also advise strengthening the struts with parallel joists. Oh and seriously, don't bother with a slab, it's an utter waste as you just haven't got the height necessary to make it interesting. Change it to a 20 degree overhanging wall and you'll have endless fun and a really good training resource.
And please, please tell me that isn't chipboard you're planning on using for the wall?
I have got a few hundred that I could do with selling. Mail me if you are interested.
Those panels look heavy for that framework!
No it is OSB board.
Nice work, those persil holds will be a bit slippy !!!
Be careful with that stuff, it has the occasional point of weakness in it.
I am moving and my walla nd most of holds have to go.
lots of different sets fron Holdz and Enterprise- from small crimpy holds
up to big jugs.In various colours.I'm in Cheshire CW6- if you are nearby you can come and take a look- also have various volumes going that can make a
flat panel a lot more interesting.
Could you email me some pics? It's a 3h drive from me but I bet that would be cheaper than posting them :o
We might take them off you, we could do with some more holds - we're south Manchester. Can you email me some pics?
