ANybody used PVC pipe for anything other than the Parellelettes? I am thinking of using 1.25 PVC pipe for Monkey Bars....probably about 10-15 rungs. Stress should be about what a pull-up bar normally handles. I am going to ancchor them on the sides with floor flanges.

We use 1" PVC pipes for teaching the Olympic lifts.

I'm worried about hanging from them.

I'd be worried too. One of the Crossfit pictures showed them using a ladder with PVC rungs about that diameter, but I think there was climbing rope running on the inside of the PVC pipe and the pipes were only about 18" to 24" wide.

Run a 1" steel rod through them and you'll probably be fine.
