This climbing wall is perfect for kids who love to be active. Decide on the best location – a corner makes for a more challenging climb – then simply clad the walls in plywood sheets and affix climbing holds. If you like, adjust the climb by removing a few holds to increase difficulty. Just remember to lay the foam floor mats and keep playtime safe!
1. This is a traverse climb, the aim being for your child to climb crossways along your wall, with climbing holds safely close to the ground. 2. If your kids want to climb higher, you will need to install appropriate hardware into a structural member of your ceiling to allow for a rope and harness setup. 3. Appropriate safety gear must be worn. 4. Always supervise your child when climbing.
