Just got done making a bachar ladder for our outdoor arena today. Took all of about 2 hours of work (to include building and setting up, and playing on it) and the cost was about 20 bucks. Pretty happy about it, but dang, talk about humbling...... Anyway, just another addition to the ever growing lil facility out here at Dynamic Entry School in Quantico Va with us silly ole Marines...

Well... now you just can't post something like that and not explain how you made it!

I'm interested. I've recently made a homemade wallball, and pull-up bar.

Us silly ol' Marines in Ft Sill, Ok may want to play with one too!

Thanks.

Chris,

If you get the chance, can you post a couple pics and a quick instruction list on how you made it? I'd be willing to spend the time making one up, but I am not sure where to start. Take care, stay fit, and above all else, STAY SAFE!

Skip posted the exact link I was going to post, since it was that journal that I went by. Literally, all I did was go by the journal on it, and it went fantastic. I do think the spacing between the rungs could be farther than recommended (I believe it says around 1 foot between rungs, but they just seem too close to me.) No biggie, if you make one and its too close, too long, not even, whatever, just undo the figure 8 knots, and redo it. It honestly is very simple to make going by the journal. If someone needs further explanation than the journal on the ladder, PM me, and we will talk about it. I am very stoked about the ladder, we played on it yesterday until I had no grip left, and we have a Level 1 cert going on this morning, thats how much I liked it. Next stop, cargo netting!
