Hey guys, new here but in the last week I have been working with a buddy converting a playhouse into a bouldering wall. It will have about a 12' top out, complete with overhangs and a 45 degree portion. It's still a work in progress and kind of a build as you go type thing but here are some pics, and I will keep this updated as we go as well as include a video. The goal is to have basically every square inch available to climb. There will be plywood wrapping the entire thing.




Working on the overhang


Drilling the insane amount of holes!

Lots of panels to paint





Testing out some holds on the backside of the playhouse

Looks pretty nice. I made a small one in my garage. Then after it was up I was like wow I can stand here and reach the top. Not much fun. So I was thinking about building around a outdoor 2 story staircase.
What are you painting the boards with and also are you just nailing the brace boards up or using deck screws

Kid's interests change as they get older, don't they?

Nice job - I also grossly underestimated the number of T-nuts I'd need.

This is awesome! I'm building a bouldering wall in my garage. I've been looking around on the internet for other bouldering wall construction. this helps out a bit. what kind of holds are you going to buy?
