Hey guys, So I ive been really wanting to build my own wall for sometime, to train more than once a week, the gym is far from my house. So I tried to build on in the woods with old ceder boards but it sucked. So I have this old swing set in my backyard, and aside from maybe adding a few steel trusses for braces. What do you guys think? could I build off this?

Whatever you do, you must keep the slide for descents.

I would remove the swings so that you don't land wrong on them.

Well ya I'll remove the swings, I was thinking of making slanted walls of the middle beam. Aside from probably adding some steel beams for extrea support
I could only imagine that the force of 3 people swining would be more than 1 person climbing

It will work great with some supports added, but wood is fine.....no steel required.....go to any residential job sight where they are framing a house ....look at how a wall is put together ....they won't care ..you can even ask some questions......its not rocket science....just make sure the set is anchored to the ground so it doesn't tilt....we have built tons of home walls....and holds....and we use every thing we find for holds.....total ghetto set up but also extremely fun and great for strength training.....
