Stay strong all year with an indoor home rock climbing wall
Building a permanent home rock climbing wall may seem monumental on the scale of commitment to in-home recreation—requiring an unbelievably cooperative spouse if your married. I am here to tell you that it is—and it does.
However, consider the value of every minute you and your children aren’t staring listlessly at moving pixels on a smartphone or television. And while there is nothing better than getting outside, sometimes it’s either just too hot, too dark, or too “winter” to get out.
Getting the green light
So, timing is everything. Catch your spouse after they’ve settled the tenth argument of the day over who plays the iPad next and you’ll be staring at a green light to convert the master bedroom into a local climbing crag for the kids. Don’t be fooled into thinking this is just for the kids either. The low ceiling height can be wildly deceiving in terms of perceived difficulty. I’ve seen many healthy adults unexpectedly drop to the ground as if drop-kicked in the head by a gratuitous Mortal Kombat finishing move.
So, what does it take? Not much. A small space, a bunch of lumber, rough carpentry skills, climbing holds that you can acquire over time, and a bit of specialty hardware (joist hangers, t-nuts, concrete nails, etc).
