Now, this isn't another question on how to build a homewall, rather, what are the benefits to be gained. Is it warthwile building a wall, or are they mearly 'fun', and are not the best training tool.

My home wall allows me to climb Anytime. This has caused a small problem with my arms. They keep getting bigger! They are exploding in size! They hurt right now in fact because all I've been doing this week is climbing on my home wall.

I drag the BIG pads out of my house and do some highballin, or crank some sit down starts when my legs start to hurt. It's so easy to move those holds around. I'll never get bored with it.

I can't always make it out to some rock, though I tend too at least four times a week. I rains alot here in MD, but it's scattered a bunck so I can hit sets in between storms, and durring light rain!

I love my home wall, I just wish it was a big old boulder I could tip over every few months!

Till then train hard!

I totally agree. Home climbing walls? The benefits are endless! However the most important benefits are the fact that you can climb any time you wish, also, because of the fact that you can climb any time you wish your improvement rate will greatly increase - thus making you a better climber.

You can do climbing specific training that sucks to do at the crags.

For example, you want finger strength? Put a ton of small holds fairly close and do laps.

You want power? Bigger holds farther apart and do laps.

You want technique? Set up your holds up in a way that creates a move you hate. Then wire it. Modify and repeat.


That's what I use mine for.
