Hangboard to Concrete

Off to college in a couple of weeks and wanted to bring my hangboard. Only problem is that I can't drill into the concrete dorm walls. I figure there is enough surface area on the back of the board for an epoxy or glue to hold it to the wall. Does anyone know of a brand of glue/epoxy that they have either used or heard of. Thanks.

How do you plan to remove the hangboard?

I kinda just want to deal with that problem when the time comes. maybe I will be able to pry off or use some type of dissolving solution. I just want to get it up there. So to answer your question----no idea but don't really care.

Well in that case why not just bolt it to the concrete?

thats sweet. I just don't want to spend the money. Anyone know any type of glue. I don't want to bolt in because it just seems like it is going to be a big hassle and even more illegal than the glue. I looked over the forums and saw how to bolt and everything but nothing about a specific type of glue/epoxy that someone tried.

Screw it to a peice of wood. Get to huge c clamps and crank down on it. This thread comes up every summer and thats usually the best answer. I had one rigged up my freshman year and worked great. Now I found a great area 40 minutes from my school so no more plastic. Also dont attempt pull ups on the shower curtain bar.

Just bolt it. You can cover it up better than an epoxied hangboard. If they are inspecting the rooms often and really anal about it, you'll get caught either way.
