General Climbing Discussion

training wall- please help
7:39:06 AM
i cant get out to climb much where i live, and the places that are within driving distance are getting old and
repetative so i want to build a wall of my own.

i am sure someone has tried this before, but lets say i have a bare 40 foot wall on one side of my house
and i would like to turn it into a training wall. the wall is stucco and there is a chimeny on one side,
problem is, i cant get to the back of the wall, like with most indoor walls.

what kind of screws/bolts would i use, and is the general idea a good one or not?

What sort of substructure is under the stucco. If it is bricks then drop in anchors would work. If it is fibro on timber then a 14 guage tek screw can work.

you have Hueco Tanks just out of town and you are bored? I have twice been to the States, once was just to get back to Hueco for 6 weeks! Prime season right now too!

Back to the topic re training walls. Check and view the links at the bottom of that page.

Try posting the same question on the forum.

Think seriously about building the structure indoors like a garage. Also look at building an overhanging structure rather than just attaching holds to a vertical wall. You will grow bored very quick and will be limited by the angle for training.

love hueco, but love grows old with repetition, i was thinking about moving the project indoors, but the
area is pretty well protected, and the chimney and roof are great for an overhang and some variation,
thank you for your help

Best of luck with what ever you decide to build. Please post a couple of pictures once contructed.
