Back yard rope climb and pull-up station

Thought I would share a photo of my DIY workout station for those of you considering building one. Constructed with 6x6 wood posts. Footings are 2 feet deep 22"x22". It's just shy of 15 feet high. I'm considering adding a fourth post to add stability, however, it works great as is. Balance beam was at the request of my daughter.

That is a beautiful setup. Much classier looking than my galvanized steel version. Enjoy that thing!

Re: Back yard rope climb and pull-up station

why the brackets in the footings instead of just using longer uprights and sinking them into the footings?

Re: Back yard rope climb and pull-up station

I used brackets (simpson strong tie post base) because they raise the wood off the ground about an inch. Keeps the moisture off the wood. Alternatively you can sink the posts in the ground about 4 feet but you will need to use wood that is less susceptible to decay such as cedar , Redwood or pressure treated. I used Douglas fur and painted it really well. The advantage of doing the brackets is you can easily replace the wood post if they rot out in a few years. I will post some more pics that show the construction.
