" In a sense everything that is exists to climb. All evolution is a climbing towards a higher form. Climbing for life as it reaches towards the consciousness, towards the spirit. We have always honored the high places because we sense them to be the homes of gods. In the mountains there is the promise of... something unexplainable. A higher place of awareness, a spirit that soars. So we climb... and in climbing there is more than a metaphor; there is a means of discovery." -Rob Parker.

A few important considerations which are required need to be taken into account before construction of the wall are space and cost. Both will have a direct effect on how, where, and when the wall is built. Also consider who will be using the wall and finally, consider building codes and safety - before, during, and after building a rock climbing wall. Then, climbing wall should have proper safety equipment. This equipment should be counted in the initial cost of building a rock climbing wall. Also, a good option to the wall is a bouldering cave. It is basically a miniature rock climbing wall that can be built into a small room. While the wood, t-nuts, and holds are the major expenses of the project, the builder should also consider other items necessary for good construction, such as textured paint, safety equipment — such as ropes, harnesses, crash pads, tool purchase or rental, and miscellaneous nuts and bolts. Once the wall has been built, you have to plan out the climbing routes on the wall. Another aspect is designing the wall. Here are some tips -
Decide what sort of training you want to achieve with this wall.
If Training for power, you need to set your wall at a steeper angle; if your focus is endurance, a lower-angle wall that allows you to stay longer on the woody part can be ideal.
Once you have decided these aspects, spend sometime planning and figuring out how you would support the wall.
Start by measuring the width, length and height of the room where you want to set the wall.
Then supporting the structure would typically, involve anchoring it to the existing structure using lag bolts to attach the framework to the underlying studs in the wall.
Most of the rock climbing walls are fixed to structures, such as bedrooms, garages or basements. stand alone or walls without support are difficult to build and maintain..
