I'm building a bouldering cave in my basement and i was wondering if i should buy sets of chips ,crimps etc or should i buy large jugs and slopers. it might be a stupid question but basically should i have fun easy climbing with the jugs or strong grip if i use the chips. i hope someone even gets what i'm saying. please reply.

most of it will depend on individual taste, but it would be a good idea to get an assortment of shapes and sizes. Bolt ons with a lot of preset bolt in points so that you can add, remove, change out, or just replace holds.

I just finished my first wall.
Be sure to make it at an angle., I did mine at 45, and it's tuff but I'm getting pretty strong, also but tons of t-nuts!!!! You can pretty much never have enough, atomic holds had a blueprint on their site for setting the tnuts in a good pattern check it out I did mine like that and I love it.
Also plan a volume, you can always move it around and they are simple to take down if you need to.
