Hey guys , i have this project in mind. I found this location that is basically a bridge/ overpass. Some one build a wooden bar under it , and the walls are full of graffiti . The bridge is right next to the beach and you could start a fire pit and bbq .. Its totally a secluded place. So i was thinking of installing bunch of grips and carabiners. Its an excellent spot in Brooklyn NY . My question is ... How can i instal grips on a brick wall ? step by step instructions ? any ideas ?

Go ask the city to see if you are allowed to that and most likely, they will say NO

Here you go. These probably aren't adequate to hold lead falls, nor should they be used for toprope anchors, but for getting holds on the wall, they'll work just fine.

Correct, those shield drop in anchors should not be used for life support. But they work good for holds. The price is kind of steep though, I think you can find a better deal on eBay.

My best advice would be to find a local climber that would be willing to help. This is honestly something you don't want to mess up.

I find it ironic that you're using the term 'life support'.

Be safe.

Set your route to where it's easy enough to climb to the top and back down. Down climbing is significantly more difficult, so just keep that in mind.
