/ Home Climbing Wall
I said I'd report back when I finished building my climbing wall (previous thread https://www.ukclimbing.com/forums/walls+training/home_wall_design-712443)
I've created a gallery for it which works in chronological order from the site for the shed, then building the shed and then the climbing wall etc.
Here's a pic of the current state. 15 degree wall on left, 25 degree Moonboard on right and vertical on the back wall. Still got to put the final panels on the ceiling (just used for traverses).
I'm very happy with everything so far and the walls are pretty rock solid. There's a little flex in the Moonboard which isn't really noticeable when climbing but this disappears when you put a couple of wooden stays from the frame of the shed against the top of the MB frame.
I just now need to get strong without breaking myself
p.s. bonus points for identifying the mountains on the panels...
I see you are also waiting for the yellow Moon hold... I ordered mine back in October and still no sign of them!
I forgot to say that from one of the comments on the previous thread, someone said the Moonboard would be too hard for the grade but I built the 25 degree one and the V2's and V3's are just about OK (a challenge) with the screw on footholds.
However, I also added a supplementary offset grid of t-nuts so I can mount another 198 holds and I've experimented by adding juggy holds from my current set of 'Holdz' holds (the smooth mini jugs and mini jugs). This works great and I can also programme in 'routes' as long as I annotate the routes in the app to say "supplementary, light on left hand side of hold". This gives me a systems board that is also LEDable.
I plan on creating symmetric wooden holds for this to create a nice friendly systems board which I could file down to make the holds harder as I get stronger
Yes - although I'm not missing them yet
