I looked at your garagewoody.com page. What exactly do you do in there?

You commit quite a few web design faux pas.

The slab is the center starting point in which I can climb up to either ceiling. Each side is has its own difficultly one side has good positives and the other has smaller less positive holds. the Center slab alows for traversing across and and up and overs. the vertical wall is for campusing, and climbing around. It can be positioned in about 16 different configurations and can hang from a chain for varying slopes. the back side of the vertical wall is routed cracks for intricate finger work...

As far as I can tell, you've got very limited angles here. You would really get more training benefit from a series of hangboards than you would from a bunch of jugs n a horizontal roof. Want to get really strong? Line a 30 degree 4x8 wall with slopers and just go for it.

It's a bit beyond a home garage, but the co-op styled bouldering gym I go to takes up the space of a two car garage. If you had something like just a portion of this:



I think it would be a much better use of space. If you want to get strong. If you just want to do swinging monkey moves, then keep with your current design.

Thanks. The vertical wall drops to various degrees of angles. But I understand your point. I actually crawl with 3-4 points of contact at most times. This structure is almost all ceiling to preserve space that I specifically tried to maximize with out taking up parking/storage space. However, I can see a back wall with potential for a fixed 30 degree wall. I am a member of 2 gyms with a lot of vertical options so I left that part out of my structure somewhat intentionally. Its set up for practice lead climbing with quick draws and 4 hanging straps for safety climbing in each 4 sections...It has already proven to be an incredible strength building but It is definately a different strategy and climb than vertical climbing.......

May I ask why one would have a slab on your woodie? What is the training benefit?

Each side of the slab has varying grip depth from full hand, to 2cm deep for grip, the larger areas also serve as heel hooks.. Also it is allows for lock off training. Plus its an easy starting point that allows for rest between sides. Also easier for kids to start. As far as benefit,,,its a strengthening builder, core, grip, bicep, abs, fingers...
