Very cool, but jeepers! Shocked1500$ shipped is a ton of cash.

I am sure that alot went into the development and perhaps not much would be saved doing it yourself, but I just can't see spending a month's mortgage on this thing.

Gay. What sort of a workout is that going to provide? That thing is a toy for yuppies who want to give off the appearance that they're into extreme sports.

If you have some rough carpentry skill you can make your own boulderboard for about 1/10th of that...

I have lived in several apartments where I put a small structure similar to that, most of the times it was free standing (no holes in walls)...

It is much cheaper to build your own, but it won't look as nice and it will take up more space. (not all that much more, but more nonetheless)

There's also a frame only option so that you can save some $ and still have a metal frame.

You can also make your own shelves out of milk crates, cinder blocks, or old 5 gallon buckets.

"Gay"? What a dumbass.


P.s. that thing looks shit as fuck. Needs to be wider. Needs to be cheaper. Needs to either be taller or - if the ceiling is too low - more overhanging to fit more moves in.

Isn't 400 about $700USD?

Seems like this would be a good investment for you. You could use the time that you saved to peruse a dictionary or freshen up on your spell checker manual.
