So, I finally finished my home woody and thought I would link to the pics on my blog to see what you guys thought.

It's seriously one of the greatest things in the world to be able to walk out to your garage and do some climbing! So awesome.

EDIT: As Patmay posted, yes, I know I overdid the tnuts. Haha. If I had to do it over again I would not do nearly so many.

thats a lot of fricken tnuts. screw on holds are great for home walls, especially down low, foot jib type holds.

As a setter myself I love having options when it comes to t-nuts, so it may have sucked doing but i think it will be worth it when you are setting.

Nice job on the wall.

o and "the best woody is the one that gets used" you only get strong better if you use it.

Yeah, there have been a few times when setting already when I was glad to have the extra options. As a small home woody, I figured more was better than less for the longevity of me being entertained by the walls.

So far, I've been using it 2-3 times / week, and seeing some good gains in strength and technique.

i had my own home woodies a while back! i loved them! a 20' wall outside attatched to a giant oak tree! awsome! shade to climb in, and could climb further up into the tree and enjoy views! and i had a bouldering cave in my garage! if i could do it all again the one thing i would change would be the amount of t-nuts! i didnt have near enough so my options of moving holds was limited! the more the merrier i say!

also a good paintjob spices them up! add some sand to the paint or just splurge for the metouilious wall paint. it ads a whole other experience top the home wall

With all the holds and the 4 mad rock mad pads, about $2k.

Well, as you can see, I definitely have no shortage of tnuts! About 1100 in all, lol.

Yes, it will likely get painted some day after the plywood gets kicked to hell and looks like shit. =)

I agree...Its best to front the work and money up front instead of regretting and not having options for putting holds somewhere....I built one too and Im just now beginning to not see .50 cent peices in every hole where i put a tnut...Now they are just holes to me:)

I made mine where i would not have access to the back so i used the 3 screw tnuts from rockwerx..I hope they stay put!

Jbk, I recommend you invest in a good tap. Anytime you install a hold start slowly and carefully. If you encounter any unusual resistance, back the hold out, tap the t-nut gently and try again. Even the screw in t-nuts will rip out, typically when you are trying to get a hold back out. Using some sort of lubricant (anti-seize or grease) can help prevent corrosion and stuck holds. Most people don't waste the time, though it can be a big help on outdoor walls.

Ive always wondered about lubricating the bolts but I dont want them loosening up on their own..I have to retighten them about every 2 weeks as it is for maintenance..not a lot but enough to know the climate is affected the tightness..

i'm using an adhesive (metal to wood) with my t-nuts. a pain to put on, but i'm hoping it will reduce spinning in the long run! i think i got a system figured out after just doing 2 sheets yesterday! only 10 more sheets to go today!!

i'll post some pics when i'm done!

Did you test the removal process just in case you need to replace a t-nut? It is completely possible to have a home wall and never need to replace a t-nut; but you never know. Personally I would want to know that I could if needed swap one out without removing too much wood with it. Smile

Other than that great idea, a bit labor intensive, but not much more than the screw ins. What kind of wood are you using? You might be able to score around the t-nut through the top ply to remove a nut if he need ever arises.

95% of all of my tnuts are in boards that arent coming down till the house comes down..I was not able to construct it in a way that would allow for ease of changing them out...So,,,,,,,the screw in tnuts were the ones I went with..So far a still have not had one spin or pull out..I have crossthreaded one and there is a bolt in it to remind me not to ever use it...I thought to myself that im doing way to much work putting in tnuts but I think its safty first, then its convenience second...When i start blowing out tnuts I start covering them up with volumes:)

I actually used epoxy on each one of the 1100 tnuts. With a 3 man working team, it goes pretty quickly. One guy would sit on the front of the panel and be on epoxy duty, mixing it and applying it to the tnuts. Then, two guys would be on the back side of the panel and would grab the epoxied tnuts and pull them into the wall with a wrench and block of wood. I followed the method described on Three Ball Climbing's website for the proper installation of pronged tnuts.

This is phase one of my woody. have not decided on phase 2 yet, but i am leaning towards a 12 foot roof.

i used about 70 t-nuts per sheet and the kick board at the bottom has only screw on holds.

You obviously don't smear much?

When i got the plans for it, it did not look that steep. then i built the first truss and stood it up!

After a few weeks i got used to it, and now it is not that bad. it could also be that i have gotten a little more fit and some of the holds are a bigger too.

not a lot of smearing, good heel hooking though and lots of body tension.

working on the plans for phase 2.....

the wall on the right is the existing part in my post above.

the existing wall is to the left in this pic.

Built it over a month during the bliizzard of '10. Lots of low holds for wife...a semi cripple and overweight. Great exercise.

Made out of Chinese oak faced ply. It's crap compared to US or Canada ply...but those things are extict!

I'm building a Treadwall outside.







I like to climb the rope too. But it hurts my elbow coming down, so use the holds to go down.
