@Mark: You can tell it's not hung because the string on the back drops down. My guess is that it's stood on a cabinet or shelf.

How did you attach the board to the bar? I used rope loops for mine.

It's my own design.. now owned by the Redpoint climbing wall in Brum. I made a kind of hook with a second piece of ply and a length of pine sandwiched between, so it can be easily taken off or put up.
This picture is actually upside down and that other picture is the right way up.. thats why the string looks funny!

No mate, I meant the fingerboard and holds, which I made with a router and rasp.. yeah the set up to attach it to the bar has been around for about 20 years! haha

whats the link on the net that you got the setup from?

Don't have a link, think I must have just seen it somewhere and just bodged it so it fits the power bar.
You can see how the bottom works just get enough wood so the board hangs level.. which depends how thick you door frame. (They are just two lots of 2 by 3 lengths screwed together at either side of the board)
For the top just put a second piece of wood similar to how the campus rung is attached, but right at the top on the back (Wide-enough for the bar to fit in). Then screw a second piece of ply as long as the campus rung and about 150mm long onto the strip of wood to act as a hook.. Bob's your uncle!
I could email you a few pics if you want.
