Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

If you want to get a total body work out, climbing is the way to do it, and building your own climbing wall allows you to train and have fun any time you want, rather than having to drive to a climbing gym during open hours.
Building Your Own Climbing Wall provides the essential information you need to plan and construct your own indoor or outdoor climbing wall. This highly illustrated guide includes step-by-step instructions, climbing wall construction examples, equipment and tool lists, plus information on how to make your own holds, maintain your wall, create a safe environment, and set routes that target specific types of training. Also detailed are seven design ideas for walls that make maximum use of the space you have.

About the Author

Steve Lage is owner and webmaster for indoorclimbing.com, and currently manages the website full time. His interest in climbing began back in 1976 as he was just starting an Air Force career. While stationed at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado, he and his Air Force buddies would slip off the the Garden of the Gods for rock climbing every chance they got. He continued in the Air Force and was assigned to Civil Engineering as an Engineering Assistant. While on active duty he completed his degree in Computer Science from Chapman University. About the same time the new sport of indoor climbing was emerging. In 1998 he used his engineering experience and computer knowledge to provide the first online source for how to build a home climbing wall. He has personally built several home climbing walls, including those featured in this book. Steve retired from the Air Force after a 30 year career. He remains active in many outdoor pursuits including hiking, camping, and outdoor and indoor climbing.

Guide book provides instructions on building simple, home-based walls. Clear and easy to understand. But if you are thinking big, this book won't satisfy.

Any handyman thinks he can build a climbing wall, and for the most part its true. But all I can say is I wish I had bought this book before I had built my first one because it would have saved me a ton of time as well as given me more creative construction ideas.

Read and flipped through the book but haven't had a chance to build. It's given me a good understanding of the construction of a wall/gym. If you're thinking about building this is the book for you! Easy read!

While much of this information could be found on various climbing hold websites, this book lays out the information in a very clear and precise manner.

very useful information. I am an experienced carpenter but anyone who has only dabbled in woodworking or construction will find it easy to understand
