Is that just bolted at the top?

sure is Andrew. By doing it this way its easy, minimal impact on a house/ appartment (if installed correctly) and can allow adjustable steepness. Stole the idea from a buddy and its awesome for winter


not to go off on a "tangent" (i know, geek joke), but i calculate only about 35-65 pounds pull-out force on each eyebolt, given the weight of me and my board, and if the board is at a small angle of up to 20-30 degrees or so from the wall. if the board gets closer to, say, 45 degrees, then 1)you would be sick strong, 2)would amplify the force on the eyebolts a bunch. at any rate, this simple design has been workin for me, and now i have it in front of the closet door to clear my feet. will post up a pic of mine when i get a chance.

Continuing the derivative to this point (had to continue the geek joke)

Don't these calculations infer that you are doing every move completely static? 1) If you are campusing on a 45 degree wall "statically" then you are a beast of a climber. 2) Assuming that every movement is not static, then the forces will increase significantly.

i have bounce tested. suppose i double the force, at 25deg angle, still will be less than 100 lbs on each eyebolt.
if it fails, i will report back. :)

and no, i am not campusing on a 45deg. wow.

Since this photo was taken our woody has grown, as we have erected a 45 degree wall by the door. Also included are old carabiners to practice clipping while climbing upside down.

In attempts to add something useful to this thread (as opposed to my last comment), here is a pic of my mini campus board here in Saudi Arabia. Free standing so as to decrease my chances of loosing a security deposit.




and WiledHorse, I can't wait to get back to Golden and hop on the Luebben memorial route. Than thing looks awesome. Props on the ground up ascent.

I like the clock shaped hold on the wall.
Have you spent many nights in a row on that portaledge in the garage?
And people think I'm strange because I sleep outside in my back yard tent all year round.

Thanks koreo. I pride myself in how poor my carpentership is. But it works. You should see the OTHER side with the ice climbing section on it, but that's another category I believe.

For real man. I wish I had a woody like that. Of course i'd need a yard first, and a little more disposable income...yeah i'll stick to my fingerboard and the gym for now.

With all the injuries the last 2 years, I spend more time messin' around rebuilding it than I do climbing on it. It's like my 'gardening' project in the yard to keep me busy as broken bones mend.

Yep, that is 3/8 plexiglass covering the window. Holds were through bolted before plexi was installed.

Me in the Buddha Cave at crumblewood a while ago.

Over the years being in college and moving a lot I have created quite the number of climbing walls all with the intention of being easy to build and easy to take-down/move.

Overall I have built four different climbing walls as we have moved around. Three of them were free-standing which is a relatively easy way to build something without worrying about pissing off your landlord.

Also free-standing walls are pretty straight-forward and can be put anywhere. Most of my simple designs are based on a flat wall which is all 2x4 framing and 3/4 in plywood. This is angled to ~30 degrees and supported upright by 2x6 supports that are treated (as they warp less). Easy to build, support, and I get much more enjoyment from these than I have in any gym ever.

More photos here: mountainproject.com/v/andy_librande/106638503

Climbing Wall #1: First experiment that turned out surprisingly well. Free standing structure that was 8 feet wide, ~16 ft of surface climbing, about 12-13 ft at tallest point, approx 30 degrees. Built a sweet arete on the rightside as well (not pictured).

Climbing Wall #2: (no pictures) Only wall that was not free-standing. Took advantage of a friends garage and put a wall directly into the roof in an garage attic. 8 ft wide x 12 ft long, about 8 ft at highest point, approx 45 degrees (maybe steeper).

Climbing Wall #3: Built in a relatively small garage out of climbing wall #1, this wall was also freestanding and had an angular cut at the top to fit into the garage. Added a roof feature directly into the garage roof-beams. 8 ft wide, ~12 ft of surface area, about 9-10 ft high, ~30 degrees; roof added another 2-3 moves near vertical. Awesome garage and could use it year around.

Climbing Wall #4: Current wall that is an outdoor freestanding structure. Biggest wall to date with large 30 degree section to very steep roof. Bottom section is 12 ft wide by 8 ft of surface (effective height around 7ft) into the roof which is also 12x8 but at near horizontal. Great wall just can't use it as much in the winter.

Climbing Wall #1 (RIP 2006-2007): Free-standing wall inside of a drafty (but tall garage). 30 degrees approx 13-14 ft high.

Climbing Wall #3: (RIP: 2007-2008): Repurposed from wall #1. Great garage, freestanding, 30 degrees, ~10ft high.

Climbing Wall #4 (2008-?): Current wall freestanding in my backyard. Biggest wall yet with fun roof. Only downside is weather dependent.

Made this puppy from scrap wood from around the camp(Ar Rutbah, Iraq), used a grinder to fashion the wooden holds, and nails to hold the deathtrap together. Unfortunately I built it next to the helo pad which led to its destruction a few weeks after we came home.
