I'm having a hard time finding it but there was a thread a while ago teaching how to make one. Does anyone here remembers it? Could not find in the search function.

I do think they are a nice addition to a gym but $500 a piece is a little crazy. Making your own is probably the best solution here.

I pay anywhere between 20 and 100 USd for volumes here. Soon, I'll make Rep-Point handholds available in the U.S.

Local climbers work hard at making some nice gear here. Handmade leather chalk bags, handholds, and some other odds and ends. Would love to find someone who wants to handle distribution of Indonesian products in the U.S.

The $500 one is (in its longest dimension) probably 5 feet . . . so just buy the smaller ones.

Class 5 staff will be giving free class this week and next. Stop by, learn the basics of climbing and scale the walls. Safety first, fun second.

Video record a quick tour of your new gym, then post it on YouTube, just like these people did for Big Rock Climbing Gym in Springfield, MO:

You will obviously want a full-blown website as well--not merely Facebook. Too many people will be searching for a place to climb in Indonesia for you not to do that. I think goneclimbing.com is yours, unless innerdrama owns it.

Thanks for the advise. People who search climbing in Indonesia already find me and my personal blog no problem.

With that said, yes, a website will come soon. Not a popular thing for a business like this in Indonesia to be honest. For one, internet speed is slow. Face-book works because of other reasons.

I do agree, we'll have a website for sure.

I also think that American Marketing strategies don't really work in INdonesia. Marketing is a culturally bais feild for sure.

Eman,

Edge was gonna write an article on it, but not sure if he ever got around. I've built five volumes for my gym. Three pyramids, 1 diamond, and two others out of wood. Much cheaper. Total cost of the project was maybe $250 with access to basic tools. The diamond was the hardest to do. Mounting is the hardest part.

Can I ask the general size & layout of your gym. Did you build it yourself or have another company do it.
Specifically on framing (which is relative to height) did you use 3" angle iron, square tube or wood 2x6.
I am kind of thinking about doing the same.

Can I ask the general structure of the framing. Did you use 3" angle iron, square tube, welded or bolted.
And should I assume you did all CAD ahead of time.
I watched one here, and I think it took 5-6 months, with many guys cutting and welding.

Bolted and welded steel frame.Depending on where the metal is used, the size ranges from 3 inches up.

I designed the gym, had and architect draw out the blue prints and CAD it it for me. we then created a scale model of the gym. Wall labor was outsourced.

Rockwerkx here is pretty slick... but expensive. I wish I could afford to build/extend higher a new building, as you have. For 40 feet high, that's a great weight of steel, and I had assumed welded square tube with the shapes being 3x1/4" angle anchored top & bottom. Obviously I would run it by engineers first and do the CAD. Lot's of money to be spent. I hope (and assume) you will do well.

We'll do great. I am sure of it, so far, rhe response has been very positive.

Already booked two after school contracts with local private schools. Working on a third today.

Well, our doors have been open to the public for about three weeks now. Looks like we're average 100 day use visitors a day. Most have never climbed before, so we have to teach the basic the class 99% of people who have walked in the door.

They remember how to belay and tie in on the next couple visits, so that's a good sign. More importantly, they are bringing friends in to try it too.

The best tool for getting the word out has been facebook. People take photos, tag themselves, and share. The word spread extremely fast.

Very nice. I'm interested in seeing how the public appreciation of them proceeds. Not very much interest here in the States yet.

Speed climbing is very well recieved by non-climbing Indonesians for sure. It draws the biggest crowd during comps in Asia.

Thanks. I guess we did something right convening people to do programs early on. It's like any business, cold calling, face to face visit, and offering things to people who know nothing about what you do.

Show them what you do, what you can do, and how they benefit from it. After tht, they decide how to proceed.

Thanks Again,

Owning a climbing gym is not my dream, it's just a business decision in a market environment where a gym will be good business.

To be honest, in 25+ years climbing, I think I've spent less than 100 days in a climbing gym. When you consider I average 140 days of climbing a year, tells you how much I enjoy climbing gyms.

In this case, we have a nice facility and I will use it to train. (I don't need my garage wall any more. Should be able to get in good climbing shape now, physically.

In January, I"ll start running the outdoor climbing trips. I am much more comfortable guiding than running a gym.
