Vertical Climbing Wall

Difficulty: 1 (Easy)

This climbing wall is about as simple and straightforward as they come. Designed to be mounted directly to a wall in your home, this is a great option for a kid's wall or a simple warmup wall. You can make as many of these as you like, lining them up side by side or on top of each other. They can be mounted either horizontally or vertically (the stringers need to be longer for the horizontal configuration, see designs).
