Has anyone checked this out? Its a really cool idea! Basically, they have a simply wall design layed out for people to build in their homes. Then, they have labeled each t-nut hole in a grid format. People set boulder problems using specific sets of Uncarved Block holds (yeah, I realize it forces you to buy their holds, but the idea is cool) and then share the hold, position, and orientation with other climbers through the U.B. website. This allows people all over to set the same problem up on their wall and try it. It basically makes it so that people all over are climbing on the same "rock". Anyway, I thought it was a really cool idea. The U.B. website is at: www.uncarvedblock.com.au The virtual woodie is one of the menu options and lays out the idea better than I have. Their holds also look pretty darn nice. Not exactly cheap, but not too terribly expensive. They offer free shipping under certain circumstances as well.
