Me in the Buddha Cave at crumblewood a while ago.

Has anyone not painted their outdoor woody and later regretted it? I have some leftover stain from the deck; has anyone stained their plywood? Were you happy with the results?


Yes, but it seems to work.

My woody has been in my backyard for 4 yrs now. 2 yrs ago I put house siding sheets on the backside of it and wished I did that early. That has stopped almost all of the decay/warping that was present before. The siding is great as almost all moisture runs right off of it.

Living in Colorado is pretty dry, however when it snowed it would sit in-between the beams and soak right through the wood which has really damaged the plywood with the t-nuts. My upright supports have warped but I was expecting that and I put new ones on recently and added additional strength to them. Surprisingly the 2x4's have held up pretty well considering it has been four years.

I think the siding is more effective then just paint, however if I was to do it again the paint/sealant is necessary for the long-term. Also I have had success spray-painting with t-nuts installed with minimal issues. However if you have doing any type of latex paint you can't do that over t-nuts as that will fill the holes.

Here is a link to show the exposed sections of my wall and you can see all of the leaves + other junk that collects in them: andylibrande.com/homeclimbingwall/2010/08/my-home-climbing-w>>>

A friend of mine built a rad house with a big cantilevered porch:

great design!

So I made a cool swing:

And then added some slings for leading across the overhang, 30' up and 60' across, solid 5.11 and super pumpy.

I'd add some climbing pictures, but last night and some whizisky had me take a 20'er and dank into a post, darn knee and noggin aren't feeling it right now.

If one were so inclined towards bolting on holds (or 2x4s), there would easily be 20 some pitches on the outside of his house, and there's a 60' route inside, from the sunk in basement, up an overhanging suspended staircase and to the top of the dormer leading to the porch. The nearest town is 30 miles away, such a cool house!

The latest section is done. I still need to add a panel on the top of the right-hand part of the wall for actual topouts. Around 400 square feet right now.

Next up is either a steep slab panel on the right (where the ladder is leaning) or begin a steep cave section up in the loft.

Added a slightly overhanging panel above the doorway and hangboard. Now over 400 sq. feet. It gets cold in the barn but the last week has been nice enough to open the big door and let some sun in. I wish it would last.

So the basement bouldering wall is getting there, tough to find time between school and work, but coming along nicely! Wasn't sure what to do with the little awkward connecting section and decided to leave an open hole in the middle for some unique moves.

Are you Chicken, or fishy?

Anyone find a cheap source for small jugs? I built an 8'x12' 55 degree overhanging wall in my garage to put hitstrips on. I bought some holds from Element. Atomic, & escape. Element & escape have free shipping, but of the holds I bought from them only a few actually are useable on my wall since I climb v5-6 max. The holds I bought from atomic tend to be good, but at least $20 for shipping. I did pay for 50 Soill holds from some kid on mp.com over 3 weeks ago and still haven't seen him or received a reply when I asked what was up.

My upper sheet of plywood off the roof level of my wall (shed) is on hinges, angled out to about 130 degrees, and cantilevered back on slings to a roof 2 by 6 anchor set 12 ft. back. Board flexes, but holds tight for toprope ascents....no lead falls, just toprope strength. Has held over 400 lbs of climbers on it at one time with no problems.

Michelle, nice design, that could be built in room for less than $100! I also wanted to know what the height of your kicker is?

Thanks Jeff!

I think we spent just over $100, maybe up to $120, on the structure. The holds, on the other hand, broke the bank. We squeezed 150 T-nuts, HIT strips, and a hang board into 44 square feet and are trying to fill every T-nut!

Both the kicker and the head board are 1.5 feet. We wanted to take advantage of our high ceiling.

sweagan:

1. What angle is your wall at? 45, 55 degrees? How useful do you find that angle for overall training? I climb in Bishop quite a bit, but I hardly ever find myself climbing anything over 30-45 degrees, and most of my bouldering is really training for hard trad routes in the warmer months.

2. It looks like you used 2x4 framing, how is that holding up across the span at that angle? How is the wall attached to the surrounding superstructure?

Thanks

Jeff

Jeff,

The wall is around 55 overhanging. My primary purpose is to train on Hit strips, which I hadn't recieved when this picture was taken. Another reason the wall is so steep is because the garage has 8 foot ceiling joists and steeper means longer!

I used 2x6's 2 feet apart, I attached them at the ceiling joist and the wall members, along with 1 brace per attached to the roofing joist. It doesn't flex, much.

As far as getting stronger it's hard to say, my climbing has been erratic lately thanks to the weather. I do know that for the first couple of weeks the muscles in my upper back were a lot more sore than usual. I have also increased my endurance on the hit strips. I'm not terribly motivated when it comes to training, I try to get on the wall 1 to 2 times per week if the weather is good enough for the weekends.
