This book hardly even covers the basics in building a wall. Very few diagrams and even fewer innovative ideas. He doesn't even bother to include many picture of walls in order to get ideas. Even the limited information free on the web surpasses the details in this book.

This book is an awful intro to building indoor rock walls. Outdated and too thin. It reccommends creating your own holds which is a good way to make poor holds. The Metolious website offers at least as much info as this book and it's free. Unfortunately, there is no other book to reccommend that covers building indoor walls. Someone still needs to write it.

This was a free, 4-for-3 book that looked interesting and I thought would be a good way for me to put together a climbing wall for my foster children that wasn't a plastic one you get at the toy stores. Children get bored on those little tiny walls with plastic holds; I am experienced in woodworking and masonry and wanted to put something up in my basement or garage (which the book specifically promises to be geared to). I don't have a 25-foot ceiling like he does and there seems to be no way to scale down the walls (no pun intended). The entire first page basically says, "Don't build your own wall without an architect or a structural engineer." Thanks.

Althought this book was well written and a little useful, it seemed to me about making holds and construction techniques. I was looking for a book that might have info on self-belay and anchoring but the author writes that anchoring is a subject he doesn't want to write about and never mentions self-belay. He doesn't even mention floor padding for your home gym. It's a thin book for the money (26 pages) and the price per page was a little steep.

As useful as a bicycle in the middle of the ocean, probably the tires will help you as the photo of the cover of the book in order to have a good idea of how looks a climbing wall. You can get more info from the climbing holds homepages
