Want a distraction from TV? Just build a climbing wall beside your TV.
It’s way easier to do than you’d think.

Feel free to ask any questions about how we did it.
Here’s some behind the scenes notes:
- The majority of the holds came from a garage sale.
- It’s 8′ tall, so low enough to not need any ropes.
- I bought a Metolius finger board for the top so we could do pullups on it. Also great for putting toys in time out, as in, “You want that Barbie doll? Climb up there and get it yourself!”
- The majority of the wood was scrap from my dad’s remodeling business.
