So the gym I train at downtown (Forza) also has a small climbing wall. I would say 50 feet high and 50 feet wide. Not awesome but good enough for ARC'ing. I have also set up a series of identical holds that mimics a hangboard so I can do some hangboard trainnig.

I have become friendly with the staff and since I am the only one ever on the wall they pretty much let me do what I want with it. The wall has several varied angles.

The only thing I am missing is campaus rungs. I doubt they would ever build a campus board but it did occur to me that I could place campus rungs on the actual wall. They have a section ofthe wall that is slightly overhanging and would be perfect.

What I don't know is are their campus rungs out there that are built to be placed on walls with t-nuts? The only ones I find are meant to be screwed in. Does this type of rung exist?

You could mount them on a sheet of plywood that could then be mounted to the wall with T-nuts.

Good thinking.

What would you suggest? Making the plywood longer than the rungs and using t-nuts on the end?

Or making the plywood wider than the rungs and using t-nuts down the section? Attached is a photo. I am not sure how strong it needs to be.

Would you suggest another set up other than the 2 in the pic below.

I will need to keep the rungs on seperate pieces of plywood. I can't haul in one huge sheet of plywood.

I would try to get 2-3 rungs on each sheet of plywood. The thicker the plywood, the fewer T nuts you'll need. I suggest three rungs on a 3/4" piece with a T nut in each corner (4 total). Locating the holes for the T nuts will be tricky, unless they were drilled in a grid pattern.

Mike,

I have a campus rung mold that was designed to accomodate both a center bolt or four screws. I could make as many as you want....probably $5-6$ per rung. Let me know if your interested.

I don't get any PM's from mountain project so email my directly at jsanford (at) thelagroup (dot) com if you're interested...I cans end some photos.
