As many of you know, we have a rather large climbing wall in our garage. It has been the subject of many parties, some talk on the town, and has even appeared in Climbing magazine and Urban Climber. We are now faced with our fate of down-sizing our home. The home we are looking at (and have signed papers on) has a garage that would hold most of what you see here, but not all. It really depends on how much of it we would need for other stuff. (Leave it all outside in the rain is what I say)
I have the huge task ahead of me of taking this behemoth down and moving it in pieces to the other place, pending we get it. It is, after all, eleven sheets of 3/4″ plywood, with over 200 holds, not to mention the 2×6 lumber to hold it all together.
I wanted to take a few pics this morning of the wall with my new flash kit and so I had to “pose” to get a sense of size for all of you that haven’t seen it before.
Lately I haven’t had the desire to “pull plastic” much and have really been wanting to get outside and climb alot more. I’m not sure, but it seems I’m “burnt out” on climbing in my garage.
Anyway, we might be moving soon, but there are still a lot of formalities we need to filter out with this house and the other one. I will keep you posted. In the meantime, Cheers.
