A link to my woodie, although it's not techniqually a woodie 'cause it's made of stone?

http://www.parkweb.vic.gov.au/1park_display.cfm?park=148

Does get a bit sameish after a few decades but is good training for projects.
Was thinking of doing some training before visiting Burnley but have been having a few problems finding "routes" with blue or green holds on them.

Clearly you haven't been using all of your 'board' then Oinks. Just repeating all the old classics hey? Try the Campbells Kingdom or Cyclops Eye areas - plenty of green holds in that section!

Ah, the joy of Flickr: check out the climbingwoody tag for a few from some NSW climbers. You might even find boardloard's there, his is 97% resin free.

Most of the holds over the far side are grey or orange too?!?

But I'm always up for a bit of liechen, especially off widths.

Howdy Folks, Have nearly finished my woody at home and thought I'd send a pic.
There will be a triangular roof in a day or so..

Wow, you should have asked around a bit Anderoo.

Woody rule #1) Vertical wall is a waste of time!

Seriously, lean that thing over at least fifteen degrees, it's not too late!

- Maybe he's a slab master - you never know. If you buy foot jibs (10mm depth for warm ups - 5mm or less for everything else) he'll have fingers of steel in no time! Just don't tack on bivvy ledges for the footers...

Too right. You will very soon wish you had done it and it is always more of a hassle later. 15 degress is good to start with, anything just so long as it is not vertical. Don't forget that the steeper it is the longer it can be as well. Sure the vert wall maybe the most space efficient but in terms of training it is of limited long term value.

Very tidy workmanship though, just like mine ha ha, not.

You could use the Tnut placements to hang pot-plants... This will make an unreal hanging garden. Seriously, it looks super tidy but I'm not too big on the angle either.

My suggestion Andaroo - make the facing wall 15 degrees, and kick the longer right wall out to 30 degrees. Definitely better to spend a little time now reworking the design in order to have a suitable setup you can grow with and get maximum benefit from.

Hey Thanks Folks,

I was in a dilemma as my Girly wants to play on it too but she isnt able to do it on any overhang, (I also wouldnt say I'm right into bouldering, more into face and slab climbing at the moment although I know working on some bouldering skills would be good.) Once she gets a bit better it will only take me a couple of hours to change it so the big wall leans back at what ever angle (up to 30 degrees). its just a case of unbolting the frame that holds the wall to the steel (9 big bolts) and putting wedged "spacers" in. The steel is buried 900mm into the ground and each is stuck in with 80kgs of concrete.. so I dont think it is going anywhere. Stage 2 will be finished this weekend (the roof and finish the ends). Stage 3 is where I'm building another lower wall on the side of the house round the corner and a roof that connects... the wall att to the house will be adjustable, 2.7m high and about 3.6m long.. Its just a big solid frame mounted at the bottom on hinges and using chains to lower it to whatever angle (the bottom of the hinged bit will be about 350mm off the ground.) So.. you'll be able to travers from the closest corner, into the dihedral under the roof, across to the left, under the joining roof to the adjustable wall and along.. so 9.5m one way..

Appreciatte your comments, will try and post another pic when I've done stage 2.

Cheers

Second Manacubus' comment. Very nice. What angles and dimensions Hatman?

You could probably add to it as well Hatman!

The angle is not as steep as 45 maybe 50 from horizontal??

The angled wall is 2 standard sheets, so it is 2.4 X 2.4 but spaced off the floor by about 300mm
The roof is 2.4X2.1 and the side wall is vertical and about 2.2 wide. The finish board is about .5X2.4m

If you look closely in the bottom left hand corner there is another 14 sheets t-nuted and ready to go for another wall to the left.

More detailed contruction info here http://woodieworx.com/hanger.html

Putting these up for suggestions/improvements/modifications from all you who are at indoor gyms regularly (including you old buggers who seem to have all the answers!)
We dont have anything even close to an indoor gym here in Albury so i build this in the machinery shed last winter.

Cheers all,

Mark
