Saw this the other day w/f safe https://www.moonclimbing.com/index.php?form_action=school&school_id=4 , thanks to one of Skylar's posts.

At 3.15m high, it seems perfect for CF-style spaces. The holds are very changeable, and it's not so high that safety ropes are needed (just pads below).

Plans for the board are here w/f safe https://www.moonclimbing.com/images/school/moon_board.pdf

Seems like an easy one-day or weekend project. I'm thinking of trying to bring in the climbing crowd to my future space (there's a climbing gym in town but they don't have much in the way of "climbing strength" equipment) with the following pieces of low-investment (mostly DIY) gear:
Climbing rope
Peg board
Finger board
Moon board
Campus board
Rings

If anyone has any other ideas for cheap climbing pieces, let me know!

The same thing happened to Skylar's link to that site the other day. I think it must be because of the https type link.

Anyway, go to w/f safe www.moonclimbing.com, click on the top "School Room" link, then look on the right side of the page for the "Moon Board" and "Build Your Own Moon Board" links...

After looking at that Bachar ladder link (thanks!), I think an assymetrical A-frame ladder with an attached Bachar ladder is definitely a possibility...

I have been to a climbing gym with this type of equipment. I have never seen anyone using it.

You may be able to sell a "Strength to Climb 5.12" class developing people's strenth to first be able to use this equipment w/o injury, and then apply that strength to the rock.

I wouldn't follow their grid-style drilling directions. Random holes make for a more interesting wall. Also, if you're making a smaller wall, there are plans online for making an adjustable overhang wall (I'll get back to you with the links, adjustable would be too unstable for any wall over ~ 8 x 8 feet) if you're pressed for space and can't make a vertical one as well (vertical is much better for beginners).
