Hi
i have a house, and in a spareroom i have hoped to bouild a home training wall.
but can i? and will it be great? or just be used as an rare used substitute for the days when i cant make it to the gym?

i am not a boulder so the room walls will be use to train dif. circles on.

the room is 240cm high and 300x330cm wide.
is this big enough?
i am thinking about 3 walls and full roof.
one walls at 30-35 degrees and the other ones maybe 10-20 degrees.

but will it be to compact? to create enough creative movements?

Having obsessesed about all these questions myself when building mine I think I know what you trully want to know and that might be how to make the most of small space. After converting two garage bays here is what I can tell you:
*you want a floor to ceiling angled wall(8x12 feet is good) and around 35 or 40 degrees for training on a Hit sytem/lunges, sit starts,etc
*You need a place to hang a hangboard
* If you can do a ceiling to practice laps and core strengthening upside down, that will be nice
*I built a stalagtite structure that I start under and work at gettin up on and above..this is a huge strengthening feature of my gym.
* I also have quick draws that i practice lead motions and lock offs on the ceiling.. I just pull 10 feet of rope behind me

I used to set up routes but i now that Im getting out more on rock and working on projects elsewhere it is serving best as a training area instead of a project area..Now I can say this there are a few projects that Im working on elsewhere that Im struggling to piece togther and I can duplicate the crux at home and work it out so it serves that purpose as well.

Hope this is helpful
Jason

my home boulder setup is approximately this size. And it's fucking awesome ! :)

I have quickdraws as well on my wall... quite useful to work on the lead climbing motions. And it increase the difficulty level on your boulder.

If I do HUGE movements, I can get to the top of my boulder in like ... 3 or 4 moves, wich is pretty lame. But you can try smaller/more technical moves, going up and down on your wall, setting up some weird problems, and you can get to something like a 10 moves sequences before you reach the top of your boulder.
