You want 1 wall at around 45 degree, 8 foot wide and 10 foot high at the very least.

Take it from me (done so much traversing for endurance) doing it on straight walls has almost 0 effect for overhangs. Yet doing it on overhangs, even up/down climbing a 12 foot wall helps everything. Learning the basics of technique will only take you 6 month to a year. Wasting any more time on straight walls or drilling movement and training ''endurance'' rather than getting strong will wind you up in the same boat as most people. 5.11.

Btw, are you doing all this just to get fit? coz their are cheaper and far more efficient ways. On top of that, you will get bored. Unless you strongly motivated to get better at climbing (or to not die for health reasons) then a bouldering wall may not be for you ;p.
