Route Setting 28-Jun-2006 At 7:21:10 AM robin
I've not done a heap of route setting but I do have a home woodie. I agree with belayslave using outdoor sequences as a basis for a problem is great. Outdoor sequences are obviously random (other than chipped or contrived routes) so you have to work out different ways of using holds.

I find some routes a bit too predictable with simple left-right combinations and the difficulty being dictated by the size and shape of the hold. Try including some different techniques such as heel hooks, matches, gastons, knee bar etc.

Also different people set entirely different styles of climbs/problems so if you can get friends around to set problems you will get greater variety on your wall.
