With outdoor rock climbing rising dramatically in popularityHome climbing wall over the last decade, indoor rock climbing has followed suit.  For some, as with this particular client, the climbing gym is just not convenient enough!  The most important factor in this design was a clean interaction with the living space.  This home has a very ideal layout; a 12′ vaulted ceiling, 30′ of straight wall space and an alcove in that wall space for some depth and variation.  The climbing wall we envisioned was clean, textural, natural in appearance and worked with the flow and style of the home.                                           Home climbing wall

Using a cabinet grade plywood, and clear satin polyurethane as the finishing coat we achieved exactly what we set out to do, create a dynamic indoor climbing wall that established itself as Home climbing wall volumepart of the home, not only functionally, but artistically as well.  We began with the vertical wall and alcove area, returning the following year to build the “features” or “volumes” (pyramid shaped structures), as they are known in the close knit climbing world.  These new additions added fresh depth to the wall, literally, allowing for a more dynamic approach to the home climbing wall.

    Hi, this is exactly what I envisioned to do.

    Did you build the wall straight into the structure of the house (attached to wall stud)? Or did you add framing on top of current house structure?

    Did you take out the original drywall first?

    Let me know. Thx

      We installed the plywood directly over the drywall as this was a retro fit. The client wanted to be able to take it down and do minimal repairs to the drywall & paint in the future. The studs were 24″ on center, which was plenty of structure to mount onto. We simply had to locate all of the studs, then layout the plywood to fit snug. Good luck, it is a blast to play on!
