looking to build a systems wall. what are the favorites hold sets and brands out there. The space available is a single 8ftx4ft sheet of plywood with a 2ft footer. the angle is adjustable from 30-50 degrees.

whats worked best for you with those conditions?

Thanks in advance...

I just put up a wall myself. I've gotten holds from synrock, escape and atomick. They are all pretty good. I've also made a few myself from 2x4 and 1x2's. Are system holds different from regular holds? jonathan.lipkin

Jonathan, System holds are just holds sold in symmetric sets so you can make routes that work left and right identically.

I have some Atomik sets on my wall in symmetric routes (interspersed with boulder problems).

For a wall that size (small), I'd look into system tiles. For example.

so you think the atomic tiles are nice? any experience with Franklin or Pusher tiles? they all seem good... I am basically building the same wall as you cold-atom, but welding the frame and I am making it collapsible and angle adjustable. thanks for the info Rob Warden, Space Lizard

If I had the board and the money, I'd probably get the DRCC set. You'd need more holds to fill out the wall, though. Lanky

In theory, yes. I've never actually used them, or any tiles, regularly. But they seem like a more efficient way to utilize a single 8x4. In a single orientation, the offer multiple holds. And you can then rotate the orientation for more.

I don't really understand the e-grips tiles, which seem to offer the same grip all around the thing.

In any case, the adjustable wall angle goes a long way. Post pics when its done!

thanks everybody, I like the look of the DRCC system set, most likely i will just pick up some supplementary sets of crimps slopers and pinches...and Will Anglin, it has been awhile... nice job setting that thing up at earth treks, if your out in Utah its time to crank... Rob Warden, Space Lizard

I have set of pusher system tiles, pushergear.com/System-Tile-6-P.... They have the greatest breadth and depth of hold types in the smallest space I have seen. Additionally, their texture is great so skin fatigue is not a factor. Brian S
